Thinking of You

The December Crafty Calendar Challenge begins today with an 'Anything Goes' theme.  Our generous sponsor this month is 'Lawn Fawn'.

My DT card is a CAS this month.
I used a Quickutz embossing folder which I've had for years.  It was pre-loved when I bought it, so was probably discontinued a long time ago.  After embossing the white card, I used my stamp platform to stamp the sentiment so it was in the correct place.  The pink flower centres were die cuts and I added a white pearl in the centre of each flower.  I layered the embossed card on a pink mat and added three pink pearls.

The Crafty Calendar Challenge ends on 28th December.  Please pop over the blog to see all the fabulous creations the DT have made.

Star Easel Card + Snowman Tag

A Star Easel Christmas card today, which I saw demonstrated on Elisabeth Hogarth Design YouTube channel HERE.

I used Lisa Horton's 'Layered Stars' dies and a die from the Memory Box 'Twilight Snowflakes' set. I added a clear gem in the middle of the snowflake.  The patterned paper is from a paper pad from The Works. The original design had the points of the folded star at the back showing, but I decided to chop them off.

Here is a side view of the card.

I finished off this tag today.
I used an MFT 'Cross-Stitch Tag' die and using crochet cotton for the design.

Aussie Christmas

Friends of ours have just flown off to Australia to spend Christmas with their daughter and her family.  This image was just perfect for their Christmas card, which they will open when they arrive.

The image is a pre-coloured digi stamp from Beccy's Place 'Aussie Christmas' set.  The sentiment is also from the same set.  I used a Sizzix 'Stitched Rectangles' die to die cut the image and layered it on a red mat.  The patterned paper was from my snippets drawer and the design and colours were perfect to match the candy canes. I finished off my card with three silver and green stripy sequins to add a little sparkle.

The As You Like It Challenge asks for your favourite non-traditional Christmas Animal (and why).  This year mine is a kangaroo, because it is perfect for friends spending Christmas in Australia.

Christmas Goose

A fun Christmas card today.  I'm catching up with some of the letters I missed in Beccy's Month of Holiday Cards Challenge, so for this card I've chosen G for Goose.

The image is a pre-coloured digi stamp from Beccy's Place called 'Grumpy Goose'.   The sentiment is a from the same set.  I die cut the image using a Creative Dies 'Wonky Stitches' rectangular die and layered on a navy blue mat.  The patterned paper is from a paper pad from The Works.  Three tiny yellow pearls finished off my card.
