Christmas Card Sunday

Today I’m playing along with some challenges with Christmas as their theme and a couple of others where it isn’t but I’ve interpreted them that way.

First up is a card for:

I have a stash of pre-coloured and cut out critters and choose a Tim Holtz ‘Crazy Dog’ for this card. I added a felt Santa hat on my dog, stencilled a portion of the background and added a sentiment I created on my computer.

Next up is a card for:

I have recently discovered an amazing digi artist called Rachelle Anne Miller. She’s an Aussie and created this adorable Koala ornament which is 1 of a trio of Christmas Ornaments. What I love about digi images is that you can seperate them, resize them and print them on what ever medium you want. I printed this guy and then coloured him with my AI markers and cut him into a tag shape. I wanted a little something for the background but wanted it to be subtle so used a peice of DSP from Stampin Up called ‘Plush Poinsettia’.

Next is a card for:

I love the idea of using non-traditional colours for a Christmas card. I used a Stampin Up brick wall embossing folder, the loghtly sponged some SU Petal Pink ink an the corner and added a few die cut Christmas trees and a sentiment from the Ton ‘Christmas Strips’.

Lastly is a card for the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #101.

I chose the top horizontal row – cute critter, square amd vellum. Again I went to my pre-coloured critters and chose a cute little piggy and added a felt Santa hat. I embossed the vellun with the Stampin Up ‘Old world paper’ EF, added the piggy and a sentiment I made on my computer and my card was done.

Well, that’s it for today. I’m happy I’ve added 4 more cards to my Christmas card stash. Thanks for stopping by for a look. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  5. I’m here to say what fun your doggy card for CAS Christmas is, but I think you know me well enough to know that my absolute favourite is the naughty little piggy at the end! Love them all though.
