Hi everyone! Have you sent your Christmas cards out yet? I just finished mine up and am ready to drop them in the mailbox. Phew! Can you believe the jolly fatman will be here in 15 days? I have been super busy, as I’m sure you all have been, but I have managed to do some Christmasy crafting stuff in between other things. I thought I’d share some cards I’ve made over the last few weeks and enter them into the Heart2Heart Challenge as well. Some of these were part of a workshop I ran about a week ago. Tonnes o fun!
The fun with this card is in the diecut stockings. I cut out 3 stockings in the green cardstock with the Cricut and stuck a piece of gorgeous green and gold ribbon underneath. I then added some pompom ribbon at the top of the stocking and heat embossed Merry Christmas in gold to match.
I stamped my own background onto this card and went for the tone on tone look, which I always love. I then added a few different flags and stamped and coloured the cardinal with Copics.
Not much stamping on this card! I used the Cricut Artiste cartridge to cut out the mittens and then hung them from a baker’s twine clothesline over a Swiss Dots embossed background.
This green and red card is one of my faves (it’s much cuter in person). I punched 5/8″ circles all the way down the side of the dotty green background paper and then stamped the little images right onto the card base so they peek through the holes. I also used some of my IKEA tape underneath the greeting strip.
This one shows my newly discovered Copic and glitter pen technique on the I Believe, which adds a bit of glitz to this otherwise simple card.
This card just uses strips of coordinating patterned paper and is finished off with a few buttons and a Christmas stamp.
Love the shades of teal and green on this card. I heat embossed the ornament with silver powder and popped a red gem in the centre.
And last but not least, I used one of my sweet treat cards to make a shaker card. Instead of filling the treat cup with candy, I added a Christmas tree and hills of snow. Give it a shake and watch the blizzard!
Hopefully things will slow down a bit after Christmas. I miss blogland and apologize to all my blogging friends for not visiting more often. I hope you are all well and I’ll see you back here as soon as I can. Happy crafting!
