Well here is yet another Christmas card I have crafted, It started with a 6 x 6 Kraft card. I then cut a mat out of stripey paper and matted it onto red card which was then adhered to the front of the card.
I then made the greetings plate by stamping on some pale blue card the 'Happy Holidays' words in Versafine onyx black ink. This was trimmed out and matted with a slightly larger card mat in red. This was stuck in place on foam pads for relief.
Finally the pre-made holly leaves and berries were adhered on foam pads to finish.
Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without the beautiful Poinsettia radiating that warm red and vibrant green which represent the true colours of this coming Season. This card uses the colours and image of this plant. I started with a square Kraft Card Base and cut a mat out of Christmas Carol musical printed paper. I also cut a piece of red card and matted this on some green card. Onto this I stamped random snowflakes in black archival ink. This was applied as shown centrally over the music paper.
The central banner was made from 3 mats in green, red and kraft. The kraft layer was stamped in archival black with a double chevron stamp. I applied some white Posca pen to highlight the chevron. This was adhered over the first mats,
The Poinsettia image was cut from some printed paper and the central bit highlighted with Glossy Accents. This was applied on foam pads to add depth. The sentiment was stamped on kraft card, edged with red alcohol marker and stuck into place to finish.
Now we are in December, Christmas is upon us so I have made this simple card. I started with a Kraft card blank and cut a mat out of plain white card. I rounded the edges with a corner chomper.
The white card was then embossed with a 'snow' folder and stamped with the sentiment in Versafine black ink. The embossed mat was stuck in place on the card. I used Stickles glitter glue on the embossing.
I then diecut a series of winter animals out of red card and adhered these, as shown, to finish.
