And the Christmas continues

The CAS(E) This Sketch #56 inspired me to make a faux envelope. It’s not an envelope at all, just the front of the card decorated to look like an envelope. And yes, I flipped the sketch.

CASE Study Challenge #169

I’m trying to make only Christmas cards for all challenges now, as I need them. The image of CASE Study Challenge #169 was quite a challenge to figure out how to incorporate that into a Christmas card. Until my mom wanted me to make a card for her friend, whose favorite colors are turquiouse, lime green, clear blue and purple. I could see the first three colors in the reference image, and just added a touch of purple on top of that.

Here’s another Christmas card. Of course. That’s about the only papercraft I do at this time of the year. This card was inspired from Mojo Monday’s sketch #322.

Create with 8

Latest challenge at CAS-ual Fridays was to create with 8. I.e. use 8 of something. I had quite some difficulties with that. I’ve learned that you should use things in odd numbers, like 3,5 or 7. Now I’ll use things in an even number?!? Oh my! 😉 Anyway, for my clean and simple card with 8, I ended up using 8 peel off snowflakes. Actually everything on the card – the snowflake, the line and the text, are peel off stickers. And that, my friends, is why the text isn’t completely straight. It wasn’t that easy at all getting those tiny word stickers in place…

Mojo Monday 321

This week at Mojo Monday you could choose between round or square (or both!). I’m not friends with round shapes in cardmaking as I’m a square person, so yes I chose the square. Card is a welcome card to my work’s new neighbors, a map store.

Sketch N Stash #126

I made a card for a challenge at Sketch N Stash. I guess pretty much everything on my card except for the washi tape is old neglected stash. All paper, from cardbase to the white dotted paper behind the tree (that paper is KMA paper I bought when I started scrapbooking over ten years ago!), and the tree and God Jul peel off stickers.
