Winter Animals for Christmas Card Club

 Good morning . Our challenge this month is Winter Animals and was chosen by Elizabeth.

 My Card

My aim is to make as many of my cards as I can flat enough for the cheaper postal rate. Obviously I have made exceptions for family and close friends. To that end I used a digital image and added the mats digitally then printed it out and added it to a kraft card base card. I just added a few peel off snowflakes and I was done.  Easy peasy.

Take care and enjoy your day.

Snowglobes for Christmas Card Club.

 The theme for  Challenge # 21 is Snowglobes and has been chosen by Gwen.

My Card

I have used a Snowglobe die from The Works.  These dies are a very reasonable price and cut beautifully.

I used a sentiment die from Sue Wilson and the trees are from John Next Door. Very flat for posting - always a bonus at Christmas.

I hope you are all well and enjoying this lovely autumnal weather.  It is really weird because my geraniums in the pots at the front of the house are all in full bud again and just about to bloom. Very strange weather indeed.

Another challenge at the 12 Months of Christmas LinkUp

 Hi, I'm afraid I'm a little late with my DT card for the LinkUp. As always the challenge is Anything Goes but there is also a twist which you can follow if you like to give yourself a bit of challenge.  In honour of the rich vibrancy of October, the challenge is to use one or more of the following colours in your design: INTENSE ORANGES, DEEP REDS, RICH BROWNS, WARM GREENS, VIVID PURPLES.   

My Card 

I chose to use shades of green as my signature colour with mirror card being the most dominant and giving that warm glow. I used John Next Door's Christmas Wreath Twig die set.  My card is a 6" square base card and I just added some cream poinsettias to lift it. The stamped sentiment is from Two Jays and stamped with pine green ink.

Why not pop across to the blog and check out the cards by the other Sleigh Belles and then on the 15th drop by again and check out the work of the Merry Maidens.  We would love to see you enter the challenge.

Take care.

Use Dies for Christmas Card Club

 Good morning. Gosh these two weeks have flown by and it is time for another challenge.  This time it is to use dies, but as ever we have the option to choose anything goes.

My Card

 This card is about 6.5 inches square. The base card is white and the mat is pine gree. I die cut the Snow Flowers in white and the leaves in silver and added a small silver pearl tothe flower centres. The stamped sentiment is in pine gree too although it looks black in the picture. It is from a Two Jay's set.

Hope you are all having a good weekend.

Take care.
