Merry Christmas and thank you for visiting my blog today…hope you and your family & loved ones have a lot of  happy times this holiday season…the cards I’m sharing today are my personal favorites…the box card took a while to plan and create but it was absolutely worth the effort…and I just love the little girl on my second card…

I started by using the Lawn Fawn box card dies and watercolour cardstock to create the base of my box card as I had planned to use lots of Distress Oxide inks to create the inside background…on the outside I simply stamped snowflakes all over using blue ink….I also used Distress Oxide inks on the outside panels of my card..

I used the Lawn Fawn Winter village stamp and dies for the village scene on the inside….I have coloured in the images using Prismacolor pencils and then adhered them onto the hilly panels…these panels are from the shadow box die set but I thought they were perfect for this card…

I added a few images on the side flaps and the sentiment on the front flap as well as another on on the front of the card it’s folded….and to add a bit of shimmer to the night sky background.I added some tiny flat silver sequins near the moon image…

The little girl image I have used in my second card is from a birthday stamp set from MFT called Happy Birthday To You but I have repurposed it for a Christmas card…I first created the background on a white front panel using Distress Inks and then used a die to emboss the pattern on it..I also splattered some water for effect…

I adhered this panel to a white card base and die cut the word Merry from gold glitter cardstock as well as a small white banner to heat emboss the word Christmas using gold embossing powder…I stamped and coloured in the girl and dog images and adhered them to my card front and then added the die cut sentiment as well…

Holiday Greetings & Baubles – 2 Cards

I’m sharing two cards today which I have made with a lot of care…I have chosen traditional colours for the background of my first card and soft colours for stamping the background of the second one…it has been very exciting to make so many unique holiday cards this year…

For my first card I die cut the front panel using a stitched rectangle die and then used a smaller rectangle die from the shadow box die set to create a window in the middle of the panel with a stitched effect all around it…I then sponged in some candied apple and lucky clover Distress Oxide inks on this panel..I also splattered some water and gold watercolour on it…
I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on this panel using white embossing powder and then started on the village scene inside the window..

There is a snow bank die in the shadow box die set which I have used in the window after sponging in cracked pistachio and salty ocean Oxide inks…I then added the coloured in and die cut images from the winter village stamp set and then added a blue panel at the back on which I have used the falling snow die….

I adhered this panel to a plain white card base and then added some white Nuvo drops to embellish it…

I was quite excited once I finished my second card…why?…well,I didn’t muck it up(ha ha) and it turned out exactly as planned…
I started by stamping large baubles from Waffle flower Holiday Labels stamp set on a piece of white die cut panel using Altenew citrus burst and cotton candy dye inks and then stamped the same bauble on a separate piece if cardstock using persian blue ink…I stamped a deer silhouette inside the baubles using mocha and sand dune ink shades..

There were some tiny dots stamps in the WF Holiday Labels stamp set which I used to randomly stamp and fill in some of the background on the white panel using the same inks I used to stamp the baubles..I then adhered this panel to a light pink textured card base..

I die cut the blue bauble I had stamped earlier using a circle die and added a string/ribbon die cut to it and adhered it to the card front using some craft foam underneath…and to finish my card I added some clear star sequins to the blue bauble as a bit of a shiny element in my card…
