Paper craft project no. 294: ‘Tis the season mixed media card + video tutorial


We have a brand new challenge at The Mixed Media Card Challenge! Our theme this month is Christmas with bells as the optional element. So create a Christmas-themed mixed media card with or without bells and link it up to our challenge! We’d love to see what you come up with. For our definition of a mixed media card, click here. The challenge runs until November 25 so plenty of time to create and play!

We have STAMPlorations as our sponsor too and there are 2 prizes up for grabs. Create a mixed media card that has the optional element for a shot at a $15 gift certificate. If you stick to just the theme, you still get a shot at winning 1 stamp set. Do check out the cards the mixed media card girls made — you’ll be blown away!

For my mixed media card, I used archival inks, Distress inks, Twinkling H2Os, Gelatos, water soluble oil pastels, and Chameleon Color Tones. I used Holiday Sketches: Christmas Bells and Holiday Sketches: Christmas Flower. Here’s a video showing how I created my card. It’s a shorty — a little over 9 minutes long, in fast-forward motion, captioned, and accompanied by Christmas music. I’d love to hear what you think!


I’d like to enter my card to the following fun challenges: Simon Says Wednesday Challenge – Anything Goes; Brown Sugar Challenge #118 – Anything Goes; Weekly Christmas Card Challenge #48 – Anything Goes; Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge Extra – Anything Goes for November; Crafty Catz Challenge #253 – Anything GoesSister Act Card Challenge #81 -Anything Goes, and Word Art Wednesday #156 – Anything Goes.

Thanks for stopping by!
