*This card was chosen as one of the Top 3 at CASE Study Challenge #121.*

Good morning! Needless to say, it’s the busiest time of the year. At least it has been for me. I still have lots of cards to make/send before Christmas. By the way, I was invited to the ‘ABC’ challenge as a guest designer this week since I won the last challenge with my December Birthday Card. (My card was featured in the winner post found here.) The challenge theme this week is to make a card using paper piercing.


So here is the card which is my guest designer project for the ABC challenge. I stamped the images using Memento Dew Drop ink pads. FYI, the flower image is from the PTI Rosie Posie stamp set which is my favorite one, and the holly image and sentiment are from the Hero Arts’ Holiday Sayings stamp set. I poked the holes one by one using a quilting pin, even though I already have a special tool, a tracing wheel. This technique took lots of concentration and endurance as well. After piercing the paper, I affixed gold studs onto the middle of the flower image using an i-rock tool to finish my card.


I like how my card turned out – simple but lovely. I hope you enjoyed my card, and you find a little bit of inspiration. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a beautiful day! And don’t forget to check out the current ABC challenge
