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.

So this card was so much fun to make but turned into quite the challenge when I decided to make 50 of them, there were a few challenges along the way but I did get them all done and in the mail 🙂

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.

Christmas Baby Book pages

Here are a few more baby book pages, this book was a gift. The pages are 8×8 and I call it a Growth-Chart book, as I gave the baby a teddy bear also. Pictures are to be taken with the baby and the bear over the course of a year and then the photos show how much baby has grown.

Golden Snowflake

I was going through some old photos and I came across this one. This is a card that I made years ago, back when you actually had to mail in your cards to Stampin’Up when you entered one of their challenges. I mailed this one off, I was sad to see it go as it was very pretty in person, and No I didn’t win the monthly challenge 😦
