Hello and welcome!
I have not only one but lots of cards to share with you today, and they are all made especially for Christmas!
ONE 12X12 – 4 CARDS
The first bunch started when I was searching for something to use as birch trees.
And I was happy enough to find a 12×12 patterned paper in my stash perfect for that snowy and wintery look!
So, the bear is from the MFT birthday bear stamp set, the snowman is by Paper Smooches and the deer is by Tim Holtz. The second snowman is a sticker from the same paper collection as my background.
I used a variety of ways to ad snow on my cards: enamel dots (in matte), white embossing paste, and sequins for my shaker card.
ALTENEW MAJESTIC MISTLETOE 2 WAYS
The next card is one of my favorites for this year! First I stamped the beautiful Altenew Majestic Mistletoe for my backgroung in shades of green, and then I moved on to creating my little ornament.
For that, I used the MFT blueprints 6 die-namics and the Simon Says Stamp Village die. And of course a bit of red twine to hang it.
I stamped my sentiment using Simon Says Stamp Schoolhouse Red ink and added red stickles as berries.
Up next I used the Altenew Majestic Mistletoe stamp set once again to make an OLC (one layer card) with splotches of gold. Really like the simplicity of this one and I’m definitely not done with the set!
AND 2 BONUS CARDS – SIMON SAYS STAMP
The Simon Says Stamp One With Nature stamp set is great for all year round, and this time I used it to make a Christmas card in winter colors. I just added a few stars to embellish.
And last but not least, I had some fun while watercolouring the beautiful images from the Simon Says Stamp Winter Flowers stamp set.
This stamp set is SO lovely, you could make all of your Christmas cards with it!
All the images were gold heat embossed, then watercoloured with Sakura Koi watercolours.
When it was all dry, I added glossy accents on my berries!
I still have lots of supplies that are waiting to make a Christmas card. And I really feel it’s time to start sending some happy mail! Have you sent yours?
I hope I gave you some inspiration!
Thank you for stopping by and I’ll see you next time!
