Challenge me a Christmas Card with Michelle Lupton - washi


I'm so excited! A while ago my friend Michelle Lupton (one of many fabulous friends named Michelle/Michele here in blogland) threw out an invitation for people to suggest Christmas card ideas/challenges and to join her in making a Christmas card using the same idea. I put my hand up and expressed that I just LOVE a challenge and that I would take whichever idea Michelle wanted to throw my way. :-)

Well, a short time later Michelle let me know that we would be using the same washi tape to create our cards. Washi. You won't find many of my cards with washi, but I have been known to use it on occasion (I love it, I'm just not confident with it). This washi is super gorgeous and sparkly silver against a dark indigo blue (the photo really doesn't do it justice). I added some pale grey snowflakes, a cheery Christmas sentiment, and a few shiny silver sequins to finish my card.
I can't wait to see what Michelle has created with this washi. It's sure to be creative and super cool.

Thank-you for joining me. Be sure to pop over to Michelle's blog to check out her version, too.


PS. If I can get a daytime photo of this card, I might do a quick switcheroo so that you can truly appreciate it's sparkly-ness.

Gorgeous card - I still don't know if this washi is black or really really dark midnight blue! Thanks so much for taking up this challenge with me :)

Hi Michelle, a gorgeous card for your stash of Christmas cards, love the sentiment stamp as the main focus on the card. I'm not a fan of washi, every time I've used it it seems to peel off and curl up... have a wonderful week... Megan
