Christmas Eve Crafting

So it’s Christmas Eve and I’ve done all my shopping, wrapped all my gifts and got the food for Christmas Day sorted. Time for some relaxation time for me.

Since I’ve made and sent all my Christmas cards, I’m making a few different cards to build up my stash again.

This first card is for the December Gerda Steiner challenge. I love her digital images and this sweet bunny is no exception.


I printed this little cutie on my PC and coloured her in with Stampin Up Blends. Fussy cut her out, popped her on some angled scrap of DSP and added a sentiment from a Stampin Up set called “Suite sayings”. Perfect to celebrate the arrival of a little girl.

The next card is for a male birthday. I never seem to have enough of these and always struggle with getting them manly enough. The current Water Cooler Challenge from Heidi has help inspired me and the sketch over on Less is More made it a slam dunk.

This card I used my alcohol inks to form the shape of the sketch. I used citrus and sailboat blue alcohol ink and the sentiment is from Altenew called “Label Love”.


My final card for today is also very masculine in colour and style and it will come in handy when I next need a thank-you card for a bloke. I used pebble, espresso and gold alcohol inks and the die cut sentiment is from MFT.


I’m entering this card over at CASology and Freshly Made Sketches.

Thanks for looking and I wish you a very Merry Christmas.

  1. What beautiful cards, Tristan. I love that study in blues and greens which you’ve entered into my challenge. What a novel way to combine the two challenges! The bright colours and the movement in the merging patterns really make this a wonderful birthday card, fit for the man in one’s life. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  5. A wonderful trio of masculine cards, Tristan. How you were able to get the AIs to spread in the form of the sketch is incredible. With that said, it may have covered up too much of that lovely white untouched space we love so much in our challenge. But I love your creativity with this sketch. Awesome card. Thank you for sharing with us at Less is More. Happy new year!
