Little Girl Decorating Tree & Pencil Colours On Black Card

The two cards I’m sharing today are very different from each other…because this year I have tried my best not to make two cards that are the exact same…until last year I was still making a big bunch of cards assembly line style and just a handful of other cards…which also means that I have taken a long time to create all my cards and am still making a few…hopefully with better planning and some experience from this year,I will be able to do a much better job next year… 🙂

I have repurposed the stamp set by Simon Says Stamp called Lila’s Heart and instead of Lila holding a heart,I have placed a bauble in her hand and it looks like she is decorating the tree…
I created the background using printed cardstock for this card and used a cross stitch rectangle die to cut out the front panel…I added a red and green fringe scallop border at the top of this panel and adhered it to a white card base..
Then using the Altenew Night Before Christmas tree die, I die cut a tree and sponged in some Distress inks..I have used twisted citron and peeled paint shades here and splattered a bit of water for effect…I adhered this tree to the card front and added the coloured in baubles to it as well as the gold star on the top…I added the little on the side using some adhesive foam strips for a bit of dimension…
I decided not to add any embellishments on this card and I didn’t add a sentiment either as I thought it would really crowd up the card…

On my second card I have used Prismacolor pencils on black cardstock…I stamped and gold heat embossed the gift boxes as well as the sentiment and then coloured in on the images in various colours..I added some glossy accents on top and once dry,I adhered this panel to a textured yellow card base…
Although I can see the imperfections of my colouring in quite clear in the picture,they are not visible when I see it in person…I think I need to pay attention to the edges while colouring in…and sharpen those pencils too…ha ha..!!

Sending Warm Wishes – A Spinner Card

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri
I started by cutting the front panel to size and then using the Altenew grid stencil and Distress Oxide inks to create the background…I have used candied apple,abandoned coral and worn lipstick shades here…I then splattered,sprayed almost,a lote of water and quickly dabbed it with a paper towel…I also stamped the sentiment and embossed this panel with a stitched rectangle die…
I die cut a section in the middle of the front panel and die cut the same section in the card base…and because I wanted this die cut section to be the main focus,I die cut a gold frame from the nesting dies and inlaid it after I had the spinner part of the card ready…

For the spinner element,I stamped and die cut the cute bear from Lawn Fawn For You Deer stamp set…I also stamped and die cut an extra of the back stamp making sure not to ink the tail…this was to create the front legs of the bear…I coloured in the images and added a gold string which passed between the front and back of the bear die cut…these strings are securely adhered between the front panel and the card base…

Since the inside of the card is visible from the card front,I stamped lots of stars inside and coloured them in…

To decorate the card front I have simple adhered a few gold star sequins…
