We were so excited to bring you another 12 Days of Christmas Card feature to you this year! Each day we focused on a certain Prima product for inspiration, and to really push the creativity button we all have inside us!
We asked everyone to play along by posting their card on our blog under the card post that inspired them.
First--thank you ALL for joining in the festivities. It was so amazing to see your beautiful cards and we wish we could have chosen everyone to win! We have gone though every. single. gorgeous. card and here are the 12 winners! (Click on their name to see more shots of their gorgeous creations on their blogs/photostreams. And click on the Inspired by line for a look at that day's post!) We encourage you to look at all the entries and blogs as many designers have more than one card done for the challenge posted on their blogs!
Inspired by Day 1: Holiday Jubilee Line
Kim's vintage use of Prima's holiday line is perfect! We love her color scheme mixed with that old time Santa and that fun ornament-shaped card!
Inspired by Day 2: Finnabair Products
Brenda was inspired by all of the Finnabair projects featured on Day 2 of our card challenge! We especially love how many gorgeous layers Kim added to her stunning card! Isn't this sweet?
Inspired by Day 4: Flair, Brads, Wood
Prima's flair, brads, and wood icons take center stage on each of Cathi's beautiful cards! We love how they all coordinate, yet have different touches to make them unique.
Inspired by Day 5: Frugal Cards
Lizzy's use of packaging really caught our attention...then we noticed the adorable handwriting on our chalkboard paper leaf and our hearts were tickled pink! Isn't this frugal card just perfect?
Inspired by Day 6: Alphabets
When looking at the different alphabet uses we were amazed at ALL of your creative uses. This card by Fran is no exception. Covering the deer with extra alphabets, then whitewashing them adds gorgeous texture and is such a brilliant technique. Fran-you simply floored us with your beautiful card! (Note the use of Finnabair's Mechanicals too?)
inspired by Day 7: Burlap & Bark
Prima's newest embellishments include trendy burlap and bark pieces that add a fabulous neutral color and texture to any project. Macarena's use of our burlap mixed with Lyric papers on this lovely card is sweet and perfect for a woodsy Christmas touch.
Inspired by Days 8 & 12: Ingvild's Products and Flowers
Day 8 on our blog was a huge hit with Ingvild's talented DT adding a whole array of the most beautiful projects! We were sure they would inspire beauties like Annar's tag & card set above. We just love how stunning both of these designs are! The gorgeous details, smart use of products, and lovely color palette really won our hearts over!
Inspired by Day 9: Clean & Simple
It isn't always easy to create a clean & simple card, but Magriet's tree card (using left-over Finnabair paper samples) is sweet and easy to re-create! We love how she took one of our cards and changed it out a bit to fit her style.
Inspired by Day 10: IOD Everyday Vintage & Chalkboard
Mommyx2 took one of our Friday Freebie downloads and used it for this chalkboard-inspired card! Then she added flowers, and a splash of red, which work so well together with the trendy chalk look! (IOD also has paintable cards that would be perfect for any holiday card too!)
Inspired by Day 11: Gems, Sugar Dots, Crystals
Nowalinka has a lot going on with this card that you might miss at first glance. Notice the amazing Prima stencil work for the backdrop...and the gorgeous resin holly and chalkboard card which add perfect contrast to the design? Finally the gems and sugar dots really add the perfect finishing touches to this beautiful card!
Inspired by Day 12: Flowers
Suzie really let the Prima flowers shine on this lovely tag! She chose flowers of different sizes, textures, and colors which were so pleasing to look at! The crowning touch of crystals really took this tag to the top!
Inspired by Days 1: Holiday Jubilee
Our last card showcases the Holiday Jubilee line in such a fun manner! Joanna just knocked this card out of the park with her sweet mix of colors, embellies, and techniques!
