The final strait


For our final challenge of the year at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, we've given you plenty of choice. Just choose one (or more!) of the 44 challenges from this year, to play along.

I went back to the April theme challenge - my original card for this was about my favourite card I've ever made.


This card also qualifies for the March technique challenge,

and the March colour challenge - just about, there are hints of orange in the background.

The base of the card was made with brushos in olive green and leaf green.

The die cut birch trees were brushed with brushed corduroy distress ink.

The deer is a Clarity stamp, archival black on kraft card. I fussy cut it out. I scribbled round the edge of the stamped sentiment with a black drawing pen.

The front piece had the aperture cut, and I edged with the brushed corduroy. It has all been mounted on a 6x6 card blank.



I quite like the clean look of this, with the wildness of the brushos behind.





To play along as you finalise your cards for the year, visit us at the 52CCT blog. There's plenty of inspiration from my design team colleagues, and we're holding a DT call to find another member to join us.

All the challenges from the year are listed in the archives tabs for you to choose how to play.

For this one, you have until Friday 1st January 2021 to play along - so you can share cards you don't want to show until after Christmas!

 Happy crafting and a Merry Christmas!
