Friendship

One last Christmas card.... for this month anyway!  It's the last day of Beccy's Month of Holiday Cards Challenge, so I thought I'd use one on Beccy's lovely images and sentiments on my Double Z Fold card.

The image and sentiment are both from the 'Snowman' set of digi stamps and I coloured the image with Promarkers, before covering the white of the snowman with a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush to add some sparkle. The patterned papers are from an old Lili of the Valley 'Frosty Christmas' paper pad.  The snowflake is a Memory Box 'Twilight Snowflake' die cut.  My white glitter card looked off white against the rest of the card, so I cut the snowflake with plain white card and glittered it with the Wink of Stella glitter brush.

The photo shows the card open, revealing the space to write the message.

Thinking of you at Christmas Time

A Christmas card today that has already arrived at its destination across the other side of the Atlantic.

I like this SU sentiment, especially for cards going to someone who will find celebrating Christmas difficult this year.  The poinsettias are made with Spellbinder dies, which cut and emboss.  I added tiny yellow pearls to the centres. The patterned paper is from a paper pad I bought in The Works.  It has a zigzig pattern on, so perfect for Beccy's Challenge for the last letter of the alphabet.

The top of the front of the card is cut off.  I added a strip of the patterned paper to the inside of the card.  Three tiny yellow pearls above the sentiment finished off my card.

Love Cats

A change from Christmas cards today - an anniversary card I made for friends of ours.

I started by sticking a red mat to the scalloped card base and added a second, slightly smaller mat of mottled, pale blue card.  The cats were die cut with a Marianne 'French Cats' die.   The hearts were the waste from Memory Box 'Heart of Hearts' die cut.  I die cut the lampost from matt silver card, using a Poppystamps 'Antique Lamppost' die.  I used a MFT 'Fresh Cut Grass' die with plain green card and added a strip of green and white dotty patterned paper. Everything, apart from the card blank and two mats, was snippets so I'll be sharing my card over in the Snippets Playground.

CAS Snowflake Card

The November Rudolph Days Challenge begins today,  the last challenge of 2020.   Where has the year gone?!  

The snowflake is a Stampin' Up die which I borrowed from a friend.  It die cuts apertures into the card in the shape of a snowflake.  I die cut snowflake into a white square and layered it on a slightly larger red mat.  The SU sentiment stamp was stamped with a Versafine 'Satin Red' ink pad.  Another quick and easy CAS card to make, so I made a batch of six.  I think I probably have made too many Christmas cards for this year, so I've made a good start on cards for Christmas 2021! 😉
