Think thin is this weeks challenge by the gorgeous KERYN. We had to create a card no thicker than 5mm in it's envelope so no 3d, no thick embellishments, ribbon, buttons etc. Keryn's inspiration for her challenge was through sending her Christmas cards off and being charge ridiculous prices just because they didn't fit within their 5mm limitation before the prices went up!!!. 

I must admit it was indeed a challenge as I had to stop myself reaching for my usual stash!!!. I have surprised myself though and actually really like the flat look. 

Magenta 5 large tree's stamp
Hero Arts Car With Tree stamp
Kaiser sentiment rub-on
Woodware snowflake punch
Bling from stash
Flexmarkers (Glacier Blue, Honeydew, Aniseed & Blue Grey 1)
Promarker (Sandstone)
Stickles (Eucalyptus and Diamond)

This year we have welcomed two new lovely ladies to the Christmas Card Club, ANNE and LORRAINE. If you want to get ahead with your Christmas cards we have a challenge every fortnight. If you are interested then just drop us a line. 
Please go see all of the other girls lovely cards, they are all listed on my sidebar. 

Hope everyone is having a great Sunday, it is a beautiful day here in Eastbourne but very cold.
Big hugs Clare xxx

  11. Hi Clare, thanks so much for your lovely comment on my blog! Your kitties look so cute though Simone had better be careful going after her mum's stash!! Such a great idea doing flat cards as Royal Mail get so annoying about an envelope being 6mm thick. I really like the soft blue colours and the cute HA car&tree

    Hugs Liz
