Hi there! Seems like ages since I last blogged but if you follow me on IG you know I’m still crafting (lol).

Well, these cards are already posted but I thought I gave you a closer look.

The Simon Says Stamp Village die is one of my favorites and although I only used it with plain white paper I intent using it with other colors as well. The background was inked with Distress Inks and once it was dry, I applied white embossing paste over the Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil. My sentiment is also by Simon Says Stamp cut from glitter paper.

 

 

The snowflakes were also cut from glitter paper and the die is by Lawn Fawn.

 

 

Next, I went pink and CAS, but still glittery! I used Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide to softly color  a panel and then I cut it in half. Once again I applied embossing paste through the falling snow stencil. I die cut the two trees included in the Tim Holtz Woodlands die set out of glitter paper and without removing the inside pieces I adhered them onto my two panels. For my sentiments I used Delicata ink, gorgeous for Christmas cards!

 

 

Last, but not least, I used an old Simon Says Stamp stamp set called Circles for the Holidays and a soft palette of inks to stamp a polca dot like background. I die cut it with the MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle die. I also die cut the Simon Says Stamp Merry Christmas  sentiment out of slate cardstock 2 times and adhered everything onto a standard A2 card base. To embellish I added a few sequins here and there.

 

 

I hope I have inspired you to start making your Christmas cards!

See you soon with more new and old to celebrate the season!

Bye!

  1. Athena, I agree with Olga: your cards are classy, stylish and incredibly inspiring! Glad you didn’t ask us to select a favourite; too much to praise in each one to make that decision! WOW!
