Christmas Cards

I have been busy making Christmas cards.

They are all very simple and everything I have used is from my stash. I am trying desperately to reduce the amount of stuff I have got in my craft room.

Having said that it has been some time since I did any scrapbooking or cards making, I just seem to have lost the urge to do paper crafts. I am hoping my mojo will return soon. The fact that I was away for a month in New Zealand on a great holiday might also contribute to my lack of productivity.

I printed a sheet of christmas greetings and then cut them off as I needed to use them.

This first card uses simple layers that are all matted on gold paper



For this card I embossed the white card with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, cut the banner out using Die-Namics Party Banner Die and added a brad to each banner. I cut the trees out of a patterned paper and applied Glossy Accents  to the baubles. I mounted the greeting on a piece of cardstock the same colour as the card base.


I embossed a piece of white cardstock using another Cuttlebug embossing folder the I attached 3 transparent bauble stickers to it. I matted the greeting and attached to the decorated panel. I then attached  the panel to a white card base.


This is a simple bright shiny card I made for Charli. I have made assorted sized pennants from metallic cardstock, added a gold chipboard tree and a couple of metallic starts


Once again I have embossed the white cardstock with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I have layered a piece of red cardstock and the embossed cardstock and the greeting on gold paper. The Bauble with leaves is a sticker I stuck on some white cards and then fussy cut around before adding the brad and foam mounting it onto the panel. I then attached the panel to a white square card base.


This is a shaker card using a circle die to cut the bauble out of white cardstock. I then made the shaker section using gold angels as the fill. I attached the bakers twine and then a rectangle of gold cardstock for the top of the bauble. A piece of patterned paper with the mounted greeting was then attached to the bottom of the  shaker panel. The shaker panel was then attached to a red card base


This card was made with a Sizzix Embossing folder, a Memory box Snowflake Ornament die and a piece of ribbon wrapped around a piece of white cardstock. The Snowflake ornament was attached to a piece of red cardstock and then cut out. I applied Dimensional Magic over the whole bauble and as you can see the colour from the cardstock has run into the white. The greeting on this card is a Kaisercraft Rub-On


The santa face for this easel card is a stamp. I stamped it onto water colour paper, embossed it and then coloured it with my watercolour pencils. I then fussy cut it. The same for the greeting, I stamped it onto white cardstock and the heat embossed it with red embossing powder before cutting it out


To allow the card to stand up I attached with foam tape, a piece of white cardstock with red ribbon wrapped around it.


This card has a banner in the middle with a punch down each edge. I stuck the 2 layers together before cutting the fishtail in the banner. I cut a heart using Do Crafts Scalloped Hearts dieadded the christmas tree sticker and attached to the card with foam tape. The greeting was matted and attached with foam tape


A gatefold card with patterned paper attached to the 2 front panels. The top section was embossed with an embossing folder that came with a magazine I think. The star and greeting were added before it was matted on some co-ordinting cardstock and attached to the left hand panel of the card


I embossed a piece of white crd stock with the Cuttlebug dot embossing folder then layered a piece of patterned paper on to it. The trees are cut out of a piece of patterned papered the greeting was something I found in my stash. all of this was then mounted on a red card base


This card has a multi layered fishtail banner. The white cardstock was embossed using the Sizzix embossing folder. A piece of baker's twine and a bauble sticker were added to the banner. 3 buttons attached to the top right side of the card and the greeting is stamped with Stayz-On Ink


This card has two pieces of patterned paper matted onto red cardstock and a fussy cut patterned paper foam mounted on the smaller panel. the greeting is also matted and then foam mounted


I have also made a couple of birthday cards but have not taken photos of them yet so will be back with them another day.

Thanks for dropping by
Till next time
Cheers
Julie
