A Christmas landscape …

Hello and welcome to my blog.

Today at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, you can choose from any challenge from 2016.  I decided to make my card following the June’s theme challenge as I missed it the first time round.  I had fun putting together this modern take on a Christmas landscape …

I used scraps and snippets of card and paper from my stash for the trees, and punched snowflakes from whisper white card, then covered them with blue glitter.

The sentiment is from the Endless Wishes stamp set by Stampin’ Up.

Endless wishes stitched Christmas card …

Hello and welcome to my blog. This week’s challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is to use real stitching …

Stitched-snowflake-f

Initially, I had all these ambitious ideas of making a stitched Christmas tree with added beads, from a form-a-line pattern I had years ago, but could I find the pattern? Heck no! I know it’s in my craft room somewhere… maybe one day, when I’m not looking for it, I will find it and make it again.. after all I still have all the silvery threads and shiny beads to use!  So instead, I made use of the Sweet Threads Simply Sent kit by Stampin’ Up I found in my stash, added images from the Endless Wishes stamp set and layers of cardstock …

I stamped the snowflake faintly in sahara sand ink to give me a pattern to follow, and then used my poky tool to make holes where the lines intersected. I stitched the snowflake with thread from the kit and finished off with shiny stars and a rhinestone for some Christmas sparkle…
