Star of Hope Card



Another Christmas card using mats, stamps and Washi tape along with a diecut.  I started with a 5 x 7 inch white card blank and then cut a slightly smaller matt in white textured card and I rounded the corners with a corner chomper.

Onto this I stamped some distressed spots in red Memento dye ink and the sentiment in the same green ink.  This was matted on foam pads on the card front.

 


Another matt in more white card was then cut and again I rounded the corners.  I chose 5 different Washi tapes in Christmas colours and applied these in stripes over the matt.  I then diecut a snowflake in silver Mirri card and embellished the points with some green self adhesive cabochons.

I wrapped some bakers twine around the top of the matt and tied in a knot, securing at the back with some more tape.  The matt was attached to the card on more foam pads and the snowflake added on a couple more to finish.

Silver Wreath .......




This card is a variation on a theme using a different colourway.  I started with a 5.5 x 5.5 inch white card blank and matted this with some crimson cardstock and then matted again with some crimson diagonal stripe paper.

The wreath stamp was inked with Versamark ink and heat embossed with silver embossing tinsel before trimming out with a craft knife.  The berries were highlighted with dimensional pearls.  The wreath was then applied as shown on foam pads.




The noel was diecut from black cardstock and placed as shown to finish.  Very simple !

Winter Firs .........



A Christmas card in different colours again.  I chose a 5 x 5 inch white card blank as the base and matted this with a piece of blue and pink spotty paper (edged with black ink).




The fir trees (Time Holtz) were diecut from white card and applied with one flat and one raised on foam pads.  These were embellished with Stickles glitter glue.

I then diecut the deer from Kraft cardstock and used another die cut down to embellish his neck with some silver glitter card before mounting on foam pads. He was then applied over the trees as shown supporting the head end with more foam pads.




The sentiment (Papertrey Ink) was stamped in Versafine black ink on white card, trimmed out and again mounted on foam pads to finish. I just love those trees !!

Deck The Halls .......



I do like different colours on Christmas cards !

This card has a white square 5.5 x 5.5 inch card base and I have matted some greyish coloured paper onto this.  I then made another mat with some more printed paper with some words this time and applied this to a piece of silver mirri card.  This was then applied as shown on foam pads.




I then diecut a deer in sparkly glitter card (does not show up very well in the photo).




I gave him a necklace of red twine before applying him over the mat to finish.  Not much colour but I think it looks good !

Let It Snow ......



Who said pink wasn't Christmassy?  This card uses slightly less traditional colours for a change.  I started with a 6.6 inch white card blank and matted over this with Pink textured card and a slightly smaller pink & black spotty paper.




I then applied a stripey paper in matching colours as shown.  The wreath was stamped on white card with Versamark ink and heat embossed with glossy black embossing powder.  This was then trimmed out with a craft knife and the berries on the wreath coloured with a pink Posca marker before mounting on foam pads.




Final touch was to diecut the words 'Let It Snow' in black card and stick in place.
