Deer, Deer !!



Another simple Christmas card as I ramp up the crafting process.  This year I am determined to make all my own cards ....... a feat never accomplished in other years.

I started with a 5.5 x 5.5 inch white card blank and applied a strip of Washi tape as shown (mainly to 'ground' the deer).

I next chose an old PaperArtsy greetings stamp and stamped this on a scrap of white card in Versafine black ink.  This was trimmed out and edged in more black ink and applied on foam pads.




The deer was then diecut from Kraft card and stuck in place as shown.




I then edged the card with a hand drawn squiggly frame with a black Micron pen and applied some self adhesive crystals to finish.

We Three Trees !



Another recent and simple Christmas card I have made.  I started with a 5.5 x 5.5 inch white card blank and matted a smaller piece of Kraft card onto this.

I used a scrapbook frame with the word Noel and applied this as shown.




The Trees (Paper Artsy) were stamped out on Lawn Fawn plaid papers in black Memento ink and trimmed out before applying on foam pads as shown.




There you have it !

Noel Card



Christmas is coming so time to start making Christmas cards I guess !  This one features traditional reds and greens.

The base card is a white 6 x 6 inch card blank and I have used printed papers which have been trimmed and matted onto the card base.





The 'Noel' is diecut from plain green card and has been treated with Glossy Accents to add a shine and accentuate the colour.




The wreath was stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with red glitter embossing tinsel from Ranger.  I have coloured the berries in the wreath with champagne liquid pearls and trimmed out the wreath with a craft knife before adhering on foam pads.
