This week at Just Add Ink we have a Christmassy challenge, to make a papercraft project inspired by these beautiful images:

I've just taken delivery of some gorgeous new Designer Series Papers that are coming out in the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalogue on 6th January.  These papers have reignited my love for Sahara Sand; teamed with white, and gold, it made for the perfect neutral on my card for this challenge.
Each of the three trees has different detail ... the one on the left has tiny pearls adorning the flowery parts; the middle tree is embossed in white on Sahara Sand card, and the baubles embossed in gold; and the right tree is embellished with the sweet little gold bird (also from the Festival of Trees stamp set).
There are a couple of 'sneak peeks' on this card (I can't link to the products in my online store yet, as they're not available to buy until 6th January) .... the patterned paper, and the wide white jute ribbon.  Lovely, don't you think?
Here's my card:
Make sure you check out the AWESOME creations of the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team - everyone has really outdone themselves this week!

Tina has come up with a sketch for us at Just Add Ink this week, to use as a jumping-off point for a card, scrapbook page, or other papercraft project.

It is always a challenge for me to not take sketches 100% literally - and those trees made it extra-hard for me to think of anything but Christmas.  However, I was determined to not make a Christmas card!  I focussed instead on the fabulous Flashback Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! - and made a congratulations card, that I think would be suitable for a young man (I do love making masculine cards!).

All of the Stampin' Up! products I used to make this card are listed below, and you can click on any image to be taken directly to my online store.

The rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team have, as always, made beautiful cards for our challenge - make sure you check them out here.
