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




It’s a bird!

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.


Blue and white Christmas

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.




Oh deer!

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!




Merry Christmoose

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.


It’s Christmas time

My card for Kortskissen’s sketch #321 is a Christmas card. It’s also for Merry Monday #170, where the challenge is to make a card featuring holly.



Green and red Christmas

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.



Did you say midsummer?

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.
