Snowflakes

It’s always time for Christmas cards, right? Here’s one in blue and white with snowflakes. The background is a vellum with glittery snowflakes print. In the corners I’ve added snowflake stickers from a monthly club kit I subscribed to years ago. God Jul, Swedish for Merry Christmas, is a clear stamp from Sl√∂jd-Detaljer.

I’ve used sketch #395 from Kortskissen for the layout. We (design team members) would love to see how you interpret the sketch! ūüėÄ

I also submit this card to:

I’m late

I’m such a bad design team member. Being busy and exhausted, I didn’t make last week’s card for Kortskissen sketch #382 until now! Shame on me. But better late than never. You can still join in and make a card from that sketch – we have no deadlines.

The bauble stamp, which is embossed with silver embossing powder, is from the clear stamp set Silver Bells from KaiserCraft. The snowlake patterned paper is actually pieces of a Christmas card (not handmade) I received last year, and mounted on super glittery silver paper.

I also submit this card to the following challenges:

Christmas bird

I plan for a total cardmaking weekend, and here’s the first card. A Christmas card with papers (bird and background papers) from Stamperia. It’s an Italian craft supplier, making THE most¬†beasutiful papers, and other things as well. The God Jul stamp I used are from an old clear stamp set I designed for Skapa Hobby, no longer available.

As always, I’ve used a few challenges as inspiration:

Shiny green Christmas baubles

First card this week is a Christmas card (chances I’ll make more Christmas cards during the week are big). The baubles (and the ‘God Jul’) are peel off stickers (or outline stickers as I think they are called in the US) that I adhered to a very shiny green paper. Middle bauble is mounted with 3D foam squares for a bit of depth, and for extra bling I have put golden rhinestones on the baubles.

I found it soooo difficult to take photos of this card because of the shinyness (that’s not a word, is it?). Anyway. The card is made for the following challenges:

Christmas lights

Did you know it’s Christmas soon? Well, kind of soon. I really need to get my Christmas card making going. Here’s a card for Christmas Cards Challenge #40 – Christmas Lights. And for sketch #465 at Mojo Monday.

The only Christmas lights I could find in my stash, was in Panduro’s Deadly Sweet Christmas paper collection. The red and white striped paper with skulls you can see a glimpse of, is from the same collection.

It’s Christmas time!

Every year I have the intention to make Christmas cards during the entire year, to have a stash large enough to both send and sell when it’s time for¬†those cards. Yeah, right. This year I have obviously made ONE Christmas card, and that was during the first week in January. So, I’d better get started now.

On this card, I’ve used part of a sheet music background stamp from Artemio in the upper right corner, snowflake stamps from Kortmakaren, and the greeting stamp is from Hero Arts. All stamped images are embossed – the sheet music with black embossing powder and the rest with gold. The background is dotted cardstock. I have them in several colors but never use them. I need to change that!

I’m participating in a total of five challenges with this card:
The current Simon Says Wednesday Challenge is an easy one – Anything goes!
At Jingle Belles, the challenge is to use music elements.
Merry Monday #212 challenge us to use black, white and gold only.
Challenge #39 at Christmas Card Challenges is to be inspired by music notes:

For the layout of my card, I used the sketch from Inkspire Me #265:
