Snowflake Shaker Card

I love shaker cards, this one is a little different. Instead of having a large shaker window, I have smaller snowflake sized windows, and the window shapes are cut through the front and middle pf the card with the shaker bits added to the very back panel.

Easy Breezy Christmas cards

So today I have a couple of cute Christmas cards. I had the really adorable patterned paper out from a previous project asd I wasn’t quite ready to put it away. These cards I made to show that you can just go with it, There was really very little measuring as I was cutting out sections of the patterned paper that I liked and then just cutting out a mat roughly 1/4′ bigger. I also challenged myself to stick to 4 colours of cardstock to work with, I did cheat a little on that one as I also used Vanilla cardstock on the inside of 2 of them.

Christmas in July Snowflake card ❄️C4C492

It’s C4C day and today’s challenge is to make a Christmas card, Honestly I have a hard time making Christmas this far in advance, I see people chatting about starting their Christmas cards early so they aren’t so rushed closer to the season but for some reason my brain does not really want to go there. I had actually jumped ahead and did next week’s card first and I still had some of the paper still sitting on my work table. I had originally thought I would water colour my card for next week but hadn’t so my palette with inks in it and paintbrush were still there so I played with it and a piece of watercolour paper, I grabbed my favourite snowflake stamp set, a KB die set and away I went.

“Jolly” the Mischievous Mouse

Love this little mouse, and in this card, the little stinker is running away with a Christmas light. I thought that it would be fun to make an interactive card and have Jolly the mouse actually be able to scurry across the card.

Punchart Trifold Shutter Christmas Card

Another card created back in my punchart days. I used to really like making cute little characters out of random punches. The Trifold design was also very popular for a while. Most of these ideas I found scrolling through SplitCoast Stampers, the elf I came up with on my own.

Magic Santa card

 

These cards are super fun, this card was my Christmas card a few years ago. I had a lot of surprised reactions from my family and friends. When the recipient receives the card it looks like the image is Black and White and we see the “Wishing you a Merry Christmas” greeting, but as they pull up on the tag Santa gains some colour and our inside message is also revealed.
