The miracle of Christmas

I have made a huge batch of Christmas cards using Hunkydory’s Miracle of Christmas pack.   This car is my favourite.  It is not clear in the mage, but the frame around the main topper is raised on foam pads as it the sentiment.

Three Kings

Athough I love using and colouring digi stamps, every now and again I like to get out proper wood-mounted rubber stamps.  Here I have used two and then embossed the images with black embossing powder.  It seems strange to use black on a Christmas card (and indeed as I schoolgirl i was once marked down for designing a wrapping paper that had a black background) but with with the silver foil on the Kanban backing paper, I still see the light in this card.

Holly angel

I have used a Lili of the Valley topper for this Christmas card.  I matched it with some holly decorated paper from my stash and a topper printed from a Pollyanna Pickering CD.  Alll elements were mounted onto dark green before being assembled on the card.  I used some rustic jute ribbon behind the topper for a little texture.

Creative Moments Challenge – Shaker Card

This cute Snowman card is made using a digi from Paper Nest Dolls.

The image was imported into Serif Craft Artist, then copied and pasted so that I could crop the additional images down to make more snowflakes and notes.  It was then coloured simply, using gel pens and mounted into a frame designed for cross stitch Christmas decorations.  Some beads and sequins “snow” was added before backing, to make the shaker topper for my card.
