4 Christmas Cards for 8 Card Challenges

Today I decided to make some Christmas cards for my stash and was inspired by 8 different card challenges with only 3 of them being Christmas related.

First up is a card for:

I used the M is for mistletoe and decided to make a monochromatic card using the CAS-ual Fridays (retired) ‘Merry Kiss-Mas’ stamp set. I made 3 panels and stamped over them and then popped them up to soften the black and white theme.

Next is a card for:

For this card I used the Uniquely Creative ‘Aussie Christmas’ stamp set. I loved that little possum in the stocking and decided to stamp 3 for the sketch and changed up the colouring of the middle one and gave hime some antlers.

Next is a card for:

For this card I used my favourite tree stamp from Altenew ‘Sketched Evergreen’ which I inked up in Altenew Galactic Stream and Teal Cave, then heat embossed the final layer using Stampin Up Iridescent Ice over black ink. I think this looks like tinsel – don’t you? I love making Christmas cards in non-traditional colours.

Lastly is a card for:

I used a stamp set from Stamps by Chloe ‘Bright & Breezy’ that came with a magazine and a sentiment from the Cat’s Pajamas ‘N-7874’. I made an ink smooshed background with a mottled cloudy effect, then stamped and watercoloured the bra and knickers before fussy cutting them out and attaching to the clothes line.

Well, I hope I’ve inspired you to make some Christmas cards. Thanks for stopping by for a look. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
