Twofer Card Challenge #22 ~ Winners!


It's time to announce our Winner and Honorable Mentions for Twofer Card Challenge #22 ~ With a Twist! It was fun and inspiring to see the ways you stretched your design skills and used the same stamp, stencil, or die in creative ways on your two different Holiday Greenery layouts! 

Here are the winners!

Congratulations to Marcia (Marcia's Stampin' Pad) #14
Marcia's two Christmas card designs are stunning. The design on the left is an amazing shadow box card that folds flat for mailing. It will become a treasured annual decoration for the lucky recipient. And the textured white blouse, rich plaid skirt, and shiny gold belt elements make her second Christmas card design beautiful and glamorous.

Well done, Marcia! 
Here is your Winner's Badge to proudly display on your blog!
I will be in touch with details about being our future Guest Designer!

Congratulations to our fabulous November Honorable Mentions!

Linda (Life in the Craft Lane) #3
Linda used a sensational holiday wreath to create two different card designs while still keeping both designs clean and simple. She added wonderful touches of splatter, embossing, and glitter to her airy designs to punch things up and keep the eye moving. 

Cheryl (Paper Panacea) #29
Cheryl's two completely different designs are classic and festive. Her die cut tree is a wonderful embellishment on her homemade Kraft DSP with a bold plaid-framed sentiment. The same tree in triplicate gold patterned foil makes her second Christmas card design modern and elegant.

Greta (GG Creations) #38
Greta's first Christmas card design is clean and simple with a fun play of pointed holly leaves against the rounded card corners. Her second Christmas card design is gorgeous with the holly and pine greenery laid out across the bottom edge and the sentiment nestled in the foliage. The bling and delicate gold frame laid on top are fabulous finishes touches.

Izzy (Izzy Scrap) #39
Izzy's Christmas card design is elegant and stylish. The background gold embossing on black gives it a wonderful luxurious feel and the red sentiment panel backed with vellum adds to the richness. In contrast, Izzy created a clean and crisp sympathy card design. Using a single sprig in black, a simple ribbon, and lots of white space, she beautifully evoked the sense of loss.

Vicky's first Christmas card design with holiday greenery framing her two-toned sentiment is bright and cheerful and perfect for batch-making. For her second Christmas card design, Vicky placed a sweet deer at the entrance of her window aperture to welcome your eyes to the snowflake-embossed evergreen tree background, which she embellished with a simple sentiment and a garland of glimmering gold.

Congratulations to all you talented ladies!
Here is your Honorable Mention badge for you to display with pride!
We look forward to seeing your creative Twofer Card Challenge designs next year! The next challenge will run from January 10 to January 24, 2020. I hope you can join us for our special 2nd Blogaversary challenge!!
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to everyone! Mwah!

Please note! This month we have a Twist! We are forgoing the "for two different occasions" element of the badge so if you want, you can make two Christmas (or other holiday) cards!

Twofer Card Challenge #22 ~ With A Twist!

Hello and Welcome!
Thank you for your amazing entries last month! 

This month our challenge prompt is:
Holiday is any holiday. 
Greenery is defined as: foliage, growing plants, vegetation.
The greenery element you chose can be any color, but you must 
use the same greenery element for both your two different designs.
See below for inspiration!


Normally, you need to make two cards for two different occasions. Because so many of us are madly working on Christmas/holiday cards, for this month only, we are forgoing that element of Twofer! 

So for this challenge you may enter two of the same occasion cards! 

Of course, if you'd like to make cards for two different occasions, that's fine, too! It's up to you! All the other rules of the challenge apply. 

If you have any questions about specifics of the challenge, please take a few minutes to review the updated Definitions/Examples tab above, so you'll be eligible to win. We appreciate your enthusiasm and support and want to see you stretch your stamps, stencils, dies, and design skills!

Also, please note there will be no Twofer Card Challenge in December. 
Happy Holidays to all of you from all of us!
