Fancy fold Christmas card

Hi, and welcome to my blog.

For Madja’s technique challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week, the challenge is to make fancy fold cards. My biggest challenge was choosing which one to try out – I eventually decided, after much deliberating, on a tunnel card. Not much to look at on the front …

Although I did get to play with some new snowflake dies from Sizzix, and some pretty snowflake paper from Stampin’ Up.

I die cut the sentiment from some shiny silver card – not easy to show here…

I teamed it with some scraps from my scraps box – it’s always nice when you can use up your paper scraps up, isn’t it? So satisfiying …

All the fun is on the inside of the card – that’s where the real show is…

With pretty designer series paper and sparkly snowflakes and a beautiful stamped sentiment.

A bit difficult to photograph and do it justice, but looks lovely in real life …

I hope you like my card for this week. The ladies at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown would love you to join them – do pop by and share your Christmas makes.

Winter sweater Christmas

Hi, and welcome to my blog.

Madja’s theme for this week’s challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is winter sweaters. I love a good Christmas jumper, especially if it’s fun and festive!

Despite having a rather large stamp library, collected over many years of crafting, I couldn’t find a stamp suitable for this challenge! I guess that’s an opportunity for me to go shopping then, or maybe to pop it on my Christmas wish list? So for now, after a little internet searching, I found this free downloadble sweater image.

This was my favourite of the available images. I used my alcohol markers and had lots of fun colouring it in…

I stamped the sentiment on whisper white card using Itty Bitty Christmas by Stampin’ Up. This was a good opportunity to use up some paper scraps, and a sparkly snowflake – both of which had been lying on my desk for ages!

I hope you like my card for this week. The ladies at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown would love you to join them – do pop by and share your Christmas makes.
