2 Christmas Cards

I haven’t had much time to craft the past couple of days but as I had another delivery from Seven Hills Crafts today – I just had to make time!

This first card is made from the newly arrived MFT ‘Santa and Friends‘, and Lawn Fawn ‘Stitched Hillside Backdrop‘, with the piece that fell out of the die-cut embossed and placed back into the frame.

I shall be entering the following challenges with this card:

This second card took me a little longer – I do struggle with shaker cards – but I keep having a go at them:

I used the stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn ‘Ready, Set, Snow‘ adding Distress Glitter and glass beads in the snow globe itself, layering Kraft card which I coloured with some brown markers for some dimension, and sticking the trees inside the dome, but the snowmen outside the dome.

This was stuck down onto and piece of card I embossed with a Tattered Lace embossing folder.

Hello. I am sharing one of my Christmas card makes with you today,  made with neutral colours – and a little bit of bling!

The base card is an 8 inch square Kraft card, to which I added some square layers cut with Sue Wilson stitched squares. I also cut out a frame using two of the squares together. On one of the layers, I die cut the Sue Wilson trees, and stuck that down with a double-sided sticky sheet, so that I could add some Tim Holtz Distress Glitter to the open spaces. I have several colours of distress glitter, and find it gives a shine – but not over the top.

I then die cut Sue Wilson Deer Family, inking through the die with some distress ink to give some interest. Putting it all together, I stuck the deer down with a combination of foam pads and glue, depending on which part of the deer was inside the frame or on it.

The sentiment is from Altenew, and so are the little stars I added to each side.
