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…
Sometimes a card doesn’t need a stamped sentiment. When making this card for Merry Monday’s challenge #182 – Birds – I thought the paper itself did the talking. So I just added a flag in the upper right corner, and no sentiment.
I haven’t really been in a cardmaking mood today, but I managed to get one Christmas card done. I used sketch #214 from Freshly Made Sketches for the layout. The card is also for Merry Monday #181, blue and white with texture. The texture in my card is the embossed dotted cardstock, the glittery blue paper and the glittery snowflake.
Here’s a card for two Monday challenges. Merry Monday #180 was to use a reindeer, and I combined that with Mojo Monday’s sketch #424. Text stamp is from Slöjd-Detaljer – I just LOVE our Christmas stamps!
A last minute card for the past week’s challenge at Merry Monday – to make a Christmas card with a moose on it. I had neither moose stamps or moose images, and after a little bit of internet search, I ende up purchasing this moose image from ProjectPrintable on Etsy.
A Christmas card for Merry Monday #169 – green, dark green and red, and for the sketch at The Paper Players #259. I’m absolutely not pleased with it, but being busy I won’t have time to make new cards for these challenges.
This weekend we’re celebrating Midsummer in Sweden. I’m thinking Christmas today, though. I just discovered a Christmas card challenge blog I didn’t know of, Merry Monday Christmas. Trying to get back on track with my one Christmas card a week (which only lasted for the first few weeks of the year), I had a go with their challenge #163 which was to make a card in red and white. For the layout of the card, I used CAS(E) this Sketch #128.
