More Christmas Cards

Today I was feeling Christmassy as we decorated our home. We played Christmas movies while we decorated and  I then finished writing my cards and realised that I’d miscalculated how many I needed and had come up short; so off to the craft room I sprang.

This first card I made with a background piece using my alcohol inks (citrus and clover), then stamped the Linear Baubles from Stamp-It in Stazon and added some twine red bows for the finishing touch.

I’m really please how the background turned out and am getting better at letting the ink just do its thing. I’m entering this card over on the Less Is More 357 Red and Green challenge.

The next card I made to send to my brother over in Holland and hope it’s not too girly. I stamped the branches from the Outline Holiday Cone set by The Ton in Catherine Pooler Design inks in Garden Party, Grass Skirt and Lime Rickey. The baubles were die cut in shiny gold card stock and the sentiment from the Mistletoe Kisses set by The Ton was stamped in Black Jack on the angled vellum piece.

I’m entering this card over at CASology 277 Round and The Male Room 74 – Use Vellum. The vellum really softens the overall look of the card.

I’m sure I’ll find that I’ve missed people on my card list and will be making more cards but until then, thanks for looking and have a great day.

  1. These are both beautiful Christmas cards! I love the arty flow of your background on your first card and how the vellum softens the image on your second classic jingle bell design! I don’t think it is too girly and I’m sure your brother will be WOWed!! Thank you for playing at CASology! Hugs, Darnell

  3. Two fab Christmas cards. Loving the use of vellum on the second card. Your first card has a brilliant background although it does cover up quite a bit of the white space that we love to see. The placement of the baubles is superb. Thank you so much for letting us see that card at Less is More xx
