Hello everyone. I hope you are all well, and enjoying this time of year. I have had time to play and make some last-minute cards, so I will be posting a couple today, and probably a couple tomorrow.
The first card is basically a red and white card, with a pop of green, and all glittery. I love doing glittery cards when it is Christmas, and you can see I really went to town on this one!
The card is 8 inches square, with a white glitter card as base – from Crafters Companion – with a red glitter card frame. The trees are from a Sue Wilson set I have had for a few years, again cut out of glittery card, this time in green.
The red poinsettias are from an x-cut die – again I have had this for many years and is my go-to die for poinsettias. This time cut out of a shiny red card instead of glitter. I layered a couple of the die-cuts together, giving some dimension to each leaf, adding a small gem to the centre.
The flowers were stuck down with 3D glue, and I also inserted some holly branches – Sue Wilson again – just underneath the petals.
The sentiment is die cut in green glitter – I know, lots of glitter – and stuck down after passing the words through my Xyron machine.
I shall be entering this card into the following challenges:
Double D challenges – red and white Christmas with optional pop of green
City Crafter Challenge – Christmas Tree
Try it on Tuesday – Twinkle, twinkle – lots of shiny things
Watercooler Wednesday – all about occasions
Time Out Challenges – photo inspiration – used colours and tree
QKR Stampede – anything goes with twist Christmas
The Holly and Ivy Christmas challenge – anything goes Christmas
The second card for today is a much more simple and flatter card:
I used the Altenew layering Bells and Bows stamp set, as I am entering this card into the current Cards in Envy challenge – to use bells. I have the matching die set, and cut out the bells, and also cut some red bows out of red glitter card.
I stuck them down onto a polka dot embossed panel, for some interest in the background, and added the sentiment as you can see.
So – a couple of cards, each one different to the other. I hope you can call back tomorrow when I post another couple of cards……
