Christmas already?

52 Christmas Card Throwdown is having a design team call and if there is any challenge blog that I want to be a part of, it's that one. Ever since I found it 2 months ago, I have just adored it! To make all my Christmas cards throughout the year would just be wonderful. So the requirements are to participate in each challenge through January. Here's my first one:

The challenge for Less is More is to make a card in black and white and use a splash of color. I used Cranberry. This is the 52 CCT sketch:
Materials used:
Cardstock: Black, White Daisy
Stamps: Very Merry Christmas
Ink: Tuxedo Black (not CTMH)
Other: Cranberry Grosgrain Ribbon, Red Glitter Gems, Cricut Artiste Collection, and I got to use my NEW Cuttlebug!


  1. What a terrific card and just think... there'll be no panic when December comes around!
    Thanks so much for joining us.

  4. This is a beautiful card, Sarah. Love the way you've used our sketch and that red really pops against the black and white. Good luck with the DT call and thanks for joining us at 52 CCT this week

  5. Yay Sarah - so glad to see that you are interested in being a DT member of the 52CCT team! This is a beautiful card and I love how you used that shape in place of the smaller rectangle - the sketch is still very evident but you've made it your own. Thanks so much for joining us this week. See you the next 3 weeks and good luck to you!

  6. Beautiful card, Sarah! It is clean and elegant. You are a very talented papercrafter and I trust you will win a spot on this design team.

  7. What a striking card Sarah, good call to put the cranberry with the black and white! Love the texture and bling and a great take on the sketch layout!
