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.
The new challenge at Creative Moments has started – there is an option to make a spooky creation but I am well into Christmas card making now so a Christmas card it is!
My card uses a digi stamp set from M Medal Creations. The stamp set includes several stamps which are perfect for Christmas cards and can be used in any combination.
I took the image into an editing program and used the small digis to make confetti for my shaker card. The elves and sentiment were enlarged and coloured and cut out to be mounted upon the shaker section frame. The backing papers are from Hot Off The Press.
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.
Do you ever need to make a card super quickly? Well, here is a super quick card from me. The delightful digi of a cat amongst pots of geraniums is from Knitty Kitty. It was coloured using Promarkers, cut out and mounted onto a decorated card blank from Create and Craft using foam pads. A super quick but effective card!
I bought a whole pack of these card blanks, with different designs, from a charity shop for £2.00! Who doesn’t love a bargain?
