2012 Christmas Card Challenge Week #1

Hello everyone!

Welcome to the very first challenge of 2012 here at the Christmas Card Challenge blog!  We hope that we can provide you with more Christmas inspiration this year.  We have always had such wonderful participation, and hope to be blessed with that again this year.  We've got some great new challenges for you, and an awesome design team to help inspire you each week.  So, let's get to it!

Before I get to our first challenge, I'd like to announce the winner of the Christmas candy from our blog hop.  The winner is comment #6 on Candace's blog. 

Congrats to marg0006! 

Please email me ( with your info so that I can get your goodies out to you.

Our first challenge is to create a One Layered Christmas card.  This topic turned out to be a bit more challenging for a lot of us.  I guess you don't realize how much you put into something, until you're told you can't. lol  As always, the challenge is optional.  Any Christmas/Winter/Holiday card will do.  Also, it's not necessary to include a SCRS image on your card, but we sure love it when you do!

Since it's the first challenge of the month, we have a cute SCRS stamp up for grabs.  Hopefully, you'll get the chance to join us for a chance to win.

I'm so very excited to share our new DT and guest designer cards with you.  I think they did an amazing job with our first challenge.  Are you ready to see them?  If you'd like more details on their cards, click on each designers name to be taken to their blog.  Alright, here you go!

Wow, what a way to start off the new year!

Please remember to link directly to the blog post or gallery page where we can view/comment on your creation, and not just the generic link to your blog. Generic blog links will be disabled or deleted. You must create a new project. No backlinking please.

Don't forget to post a comment so we know you added a card! If you upload to an online gallery, please use the tag SCCC1, so that we can all enjoy your cards.

Happy Crafting!

They are all beautiful cards, but I can see that some of the DT member were struggling with the one layer concept, lol. I'm not quite done yet with my cards for this year, so this might be a good opportunity to create a few more ...

Lovely cards ladies. I tried my best with the one layer but got a wee bit carried away lol. Thanks for the challenge.

Sometimes when you have alot of cards to do it´s great to make just one layer cards.
