Chalk Ah Lot Christmas card

 I made a Christmas card for the Chalk Ah Lot Christmas with chalk challenge. There is still one more week to link up your Christmas with chalk creations on the blog. 

For my card today I used a poinsettia stamp by Stamp N Plus. I stamped it twice and colored in the whole image once and just the leaves on the second image. I colored the image in with powdered chalks and paint by Stamp N Plus-colors Red and Lime green. I then cut out the leaves that I had painted and adhered them to the colored in image. I did so in a way that the leaves would pop up from the image giving it more dimension.


The rhinestones are by Imaginisce which I used the IRock on them. This heat tool didn't affect the powdered chalk at all. The circle and sentiment stickers by SRM Stickers, ribbon by The Paper Studio, patterned paper by We R Memory Keepers and Karen Foster with cardstock by Neenah and DCWV.  My card is size 5x7 with a red card base.


I also wanted to add that this card would fit in perfectly to the Christmas Cards All year Round challenge-Fussy and Fancy. Check them out this month for a head start on your Christmas cards. It will be here before we know it.


Thanks for looking.
