A winter birthday

Snowflake paper and decorations don’t necessarily need to be used for Christmas cards or winter greetings. It’s a perfect theme for a card to someone who has his/her birthday during the winter months. I’ve mixed three different designer papers on this card, two of them with snowflake print. Happy Birthday is a clear stamp from Verve Stamps, and the snowflake is a Martha Stewart punch.

It’s my card for sketch #392 at Kortskissen:

I also submit my card to the following challenges:

Old ATC’s

I might not have done much papercrafting at all for quite some time, but I do have a few bits and pieces that I haven’t posted yet. These are artist trading cards I made back in January. One December themed and three Christmas ones.

Top 10 Christmas cards of 2015

My second and last Top 10 list of 2015, this time my fave Christmas cards I made during the year. Listed in no particular order. And I’m cheating slightly – one of the cards has a winter greeting, not a Christmas greeting.

Winter is here

Now when snow and proper winter has finally come here in Sweden, what is more suitable than to make and send a card saying “White Winter Greetings”? I made it for three different challenges. And I hope it qualifies for the Christmas card challenges…

  • Merry Monday #186: White on White. We’re allowed to use neutrals so I added some silver.
  • Jingle Belles: Something Old and Something New. Brand new is the glittery paper. Old is the vellum with white flourishes (I’ve had it for years but never used it) and the snowflake outline stickers.
  • Sketch Saturday #394

The latest Butterfly Challenge was “Q is for Quadruple“, i.e. use four of something. Plus at least one butterfly. I went for four different designer papers and four snowflake stickers. And three butterflies.

Christmas all year!

I’ve started a challenge blog for making Christmas cards all year. If you make one (or more) Christmas card a week during the entire year, you don’t have to panic in December when it’s time to mail the cards. You can find the blog at Jul Hela Året (the Swedish words for Christmas All Year). It’s all in Swedish, but it’s open for anyone anywhere in the world. Just use Google translater, which might cause some very odd and funny translations, but at least it would give you a clue what the current challenges are about.

Here’s my cards for all the challenges that’s been this far:
