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.

While cleaning my craft room 😳 I came across this adorable patterned paper pack that I had forgotten about (who me 😊) and knew I needed to use it, and I thought that the large ornaments would work great on a Triple Flip card, soooo this is what I came up with.
Here we go, rolling into week 2 of Hosting the Crazy4Challenges challenge blog. I love texture, sometimes it’s nice to have a card that you just want to touch, and sometimes it just adds that extra little touch, so this weeks challenge is to add texture to your card.
to see all the other textured cards made by the very talented design team just hop on over here C4C blog (posts Saturday Nov 9)
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.

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 🙂
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.
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.
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.
