JAI43 - Just Add Christmas

Can you believe Christmas is so close??  The challenge at Just Add Ink this week is Just Add Christmas, so it's the perfect challenge to kickstart your Christmas cards, if you haven't already started!

Here's my contribution for this week:

I kept it ultra simple with only two colours - Whisper White and Sahara Sand.  I love these two colours together!  And although the photo doesn't show it clearly, I've also used Shimmer Paint in the form of a spray on the bauble, so it's very shimmery.  To make the spray you just add a tiny bit of shimmer paint to some rubbing alcohol.

Make sure you check out the rest of the DT projects at Just Add Ink!

Stamp sets - Delightful Decorations, Baroque Motifs
Cardstock - Whisper White, Sahara Sand
Inks - Sahara Sand
Accessories - Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, rubbing alcohol, dimensionals, linen thread



  1. A beautiful, elegant card Danielle! I would not have thought to just use Sahara Sand with Whisper White but you show that it works so well together, thanks for the inspiration yet again!

  2. So divinely simple, might have to use this as "inspiration". Thanks for the info on Prismacolour pencils, the jeans you coloured on one of your previous cards is stunning. I'll look into it very soon.

  3. This is gorgeous Danielle, and so elegant, love those two colours together, they work really well.

  4. As Mae said,I would never have thought to keep a card just at Sahara Sand and Whisper White - but gee it works so well!!

  5. Beautifully elegant!! I can just imagine the sparkle on the bauble - but it's so darn hard to photograph!!

  6. Danielle this is just gorgeous! So simple and elegant - just striking. I LOVE it! Then again - I love all your cards! xxx xxx xxx

  7. Beauitful, love the simplicity.

  8. I love this card! I have just made my own version for my stamp a stack this week, so thank you for shring, it was just the inspiration I needed!

  9. I love the simplicity of this card - will definitely make this as well. Thanks for the inspiration.
