Just Add Ink 245

This week's challenge at Just Add Ink is an inspiration board. I'm going to give it a go for two reasons: I don't feel as comfortable with this kind of challenge and secondly because while there have been a few neutrals Christmas challenges this year, I've always left them alone - again because I'm not so comfortable there.

I have deliberately gone for a simple design and picked up on the neutral/natural colour palette, the star shape and the Christmas theme.

The Sahara Sand front panel has a star cut out to reveal the Early Espresso underneath and is raised up on dimensionals. The top of the panel is embossed using the Lucky Stars folder.

Card: Sahara Sand, Early Espresso
Stamps: Endless Wishes
Other: Star from Circle Thinlits, Lucky Stars embossing folder, Sahara Sand Candy Dot, Linen Twine, dimensionals


  1. Well l think you've nailed this challenge Jan...Perfectly sweet and simple. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink and Merry Christmas to you. xx

  2. This is beautiful, Jan! You may have felt like you were being pushed outside your comfort zone, but the result is just gorgeous. I'm a sucker for the stars embossing folder, and I love it paired with a little die-cut star. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week. :)

  3. This is a gorgeous starry card Jan! Love your idea of the popped out die cut star to accent the sentiment. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  4. You can so see the inspiration photo in your card. I love all the white, the stars are perfect and the natural twine finishes it off beautifully. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family!!
