Christmas Tree Advent Calendar

Christmas Tree Advent Calendar

Welcome to Cards for Men Challenge blog’s 3rd anniversary.  They have been doing something special every year to say thank you to all their followers, participants and sponsors. They have enjoyed seeing all of your creations and have been inspired throughout the year and hope you have been also inspired by their creations as well. This year they are having a special “DAYS OF CHRISTMAS” event which started on the 3rd and runs until the 14th of December.  Today is Day 12 of the “DAYS OF CHRISTMAS” event at Cards for Men.  Each day a different team member hosted the event showing their fabulous Christmas card/project.  I am the last one to be hosting this wonderful event.  The sponsor for my day is Letraset.You will need to leave a comment for an opportunity to win their fabulous prize they are offering.  I will be choosing a winner on Saturday by Random.org from all the comments left here today on my blog.


ProMarkers are made by Letraset and are a twin tipped, dye based alcohol marker offering a high quality product at a great price.  Available in 148 colours, they give incredible tonal range and can be applied to a diverse range of materials, not just paper and card.  ProMarkers produce vivid, bright colours right through to the subtlest pastel shades – the translucent inks can also be overlaid and blended, even further extending the range of shades and hues on offer.  ProMarkers quality nibs and inks provide flawless colour lay down with consistent coverage and no unsightly streaking.

Prize offered to a lucky winner is 6 Flexmarkers

I created this Christmas Tree Advent Calendar using my Silhouette Cameo that my husband purchased for me for my birthday.  This is the first project I created using this wonderful machine.  I can’t imagine cutting everything to make this advent calendar by hand.  The boxes, numbers, ornaments and 3D star were all cut with the Cameo.  I used a Martha Stewart Snow Flurry PATP punch for the snowflakes.  The bows were made with Brown, Red and Tan Scrapper’s Floss.  All the printed papers were DCWV Holiday Collection Christmas Stack and Holiday Stack.  The Red, Green and Brown shimmer card stocks are DCWV Shimmer Stack.  And finally the boxes were created using Kraft, Green and Brown card stocks from Recollections.

Well, I hope you have been inspired.  I’ve enjoyed creating this project for such a wonderful event by Cards for Men and was truly honored when asked to participate.  Don’t forget to leave a comment for a chance to win the fabulous sponsor prize being offered.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope everyone has a terrific weekend!  Hope you visit again!

Oh Kym, this is a wonderful end to our Christmas Event. Your project is wonderful. I have a (very unused) cameo. Maybe you could do a tutorial so that we can all make one of these for next year - hint hint.

Merry Christmas,
