Bingo Card with Something Green for OCCC

Greetings! Yep - this is a Christmas card.  Nope, I haven't lost my mind - I do realize that its supposed to be spring :o)  But, today I am entering a card for the first time in the Our Creative Corner Challenge (OCCC).

This weeks challenge at OCCC is to make a card or tag with some sort of bingo card on it, and use the color green somewhere on the project.  I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that most of you probably wouldn't have interpreted this as Christmas green - right?  Well..funny story... I had just finished up a card for another challenge that actually is to make Christmas cards (Merry Monday Challenge) and I had all this Christmas stuff out on my work table as I was reading about this week's OCCC challenge and inspiration struck! The result is this card.  Hey, I get points for creativity - right? 

Seriously, I sure hope you enjoy this card.  The size is 5 1/2 " square and fits nicely into the SU square envelopes (it is a postage hog though).  Supplies are listed below.  Thanks so much for popping in - hope I inspired you to create a bingo card with something green  (maybe you'll chose a spring theme though) :o) 

Supplies (all are from Stampin Up!):  Cardstock - Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso.  Patterned Paper - Letters to Santa (122349). Ribbon - 1/2" Seam binding in Baja Breeze. Brad from the Glimmer Brads - brights (121006). Buttons and felt embellishments- from my stash of retired products.


  1. What a fabulous card Danielle .... I love all the elements and how super is that felt wreath ...
    Thanks for joining us at Our Creative Corner!!!

  2. Thanks Tui. I have to admit that I was nervous about putting a Christmas card in as my entry but I just had to allow myself to listen to my creative voice even if it did seem odd. Isn't that the fun though with being creative - you get to take some very safe risks :o) I appreciate your nice comments so much.

  3. This card is gorgeous Danielle. It's a beautiful colours combination. Ideally suited 'bingo'card.
    Thanks for joining us for the Our Creative Corner! Hope to see you again next week and good luck!

  4. Welcome to our challenge...nice to have you, and we hope you come back! Your Christmas bingo card is darling! I love the dark green and the wreath is perfect. It's never to early to prepare for Christmas! Thank you for joining us at Our Creative Corner this week!

  5. Thanks so much Rudlis and Anita - The ideas I got from the design team for this challenge were just so inspiring that I had to give it a try too. I appreciate your nice comments :o)

  6. So glad you joined us this week at Our Creative Corner, Danielle! Love your Christma card with all of the fun felt accents! The seam binding ribbon is the perfect finishing touch, too. Fabulously festive! Have a great day! :)
