July Theme Challenge - Non-Traditional Christmas Card


Morning All, Myrna here.
The third Saturday of each month at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is either a theme or recipe challenge. I decided to go for a theme this month and I want to see a Non-Traditional Christmas Card. You can make a non-traditional card in numerous ways like changing up the subject matter, the colours, papers, or even using non-Christmas stamps and dies to create a Christmas card. Please share what you did.





 Here is some inspiration from the team:


Myrna



Andreja


Fabiola
