Wood texture Christmas card with pretty pines …

Hello and welcome to my blog. For the new challenge at Christmas Card Throwdown, we want you to use wood or canvas on your project.  I used wood texture dsp, a balsa wood top note die cut, teamed with die cuts made with the pretty pines thinlits by Stampin’ Up! to make my card…

I stamped the sentiment in early espresso ink which toned beautifully with the dsp…

The pines were diecut from scraps of green cardstock, and I added shading with my stampin’ write marker pens. 

I cut some of the die cuts in whisper white glimmer paper and added red stickles for the berries. 

I hope you like my card for this week.  The ladies on the Design Team have created lots of inspiration for you, so why not hop on over to Christmas Card Throwdown

Pop-up Christmas card …

I made a second card for the current winter sports challenge at Christmas Card Throwdown and there is still time for you to play along.  The outside of my card features a gorgeous Christmas sentiment stamped onto shimmery white cardstock and layered with Christmas dsp, cherry cobbler and crumbcake cardstock …

And on the inside, a pretty pop-up featuring the skaters from the Winter Post stamp set by Stampin’ Up …

A little difficult to photograph, but beautiful in real life – I had fun using the pop-up die set by Stampendous…

I hope you like my card for this week.  The ladies on the Design Team have created lots of lovely card to inspire you, so do pop on over to the challenge blog to take a look.
