Making Merry!

Christmas cards that is!

Today I decided to make a series of Christmas cards inspired by a number of non-Christmas challenges.

First up is a card for CAS Colours & Sketches #389.

I liked the 3 verticle stripes and decided to use a stamp which had 3 different verticle Christmas trees. I ithem up with my Kaleidacolor ‘Caribben Sea’ ink pad and added them over some gold glitter paper and teal cardstock.

Next is a card for Colour Hues #2 – Navy & Turquoise.

I love the idea of using non-traditional colours on a Christmas card and decided to use my favourite Christmas tree stamp from Altenew ‘Sketched Evergreen’. I used Catherine Pooler inks in Fiesta Blue, Something Borrowed and Juniper Mist.

Lastly is a card for The Male Room Challenge #142 – Travel and Festive Friday #68.

I decided to make a card with Santa and his sleigh (that’s travel right?). I created a night sky background, a silver embossed sentiment and added a Santa sleigh die cut and my card was done.

As you can see I used purple, blue, metallic and stars from the Festive Fridays inspo board on my card.

Thanks for stopping by for a look. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  1. Fantastic card. I like the sentiment. Santa really travels a lot of the world, you found yourself with a beautiful motif.
