52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Theme Challenge – April 21, 2018 – White Christmas

This week the 52CCT Design Team is challenging you to make a white on white Christmas card. I used two dies sets to create my round card. I started with cutting two circles, and the beautiful snowflake circular die cut using Snowflake Circle by Spirit of Christmas Precious Marieke. To add the bird I using the dies only from Hero Arts – Die and Clear Acrylic Stamp Set – Dimensional Bird. To attach the circles to form the card, I scored the inside (back) circle about 1/2 inch down and used Be Creative tape to glue the two together.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown Technique Challenge – March 2018 – Embossing

For the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Technique Challenge, the design team challenges you to make a Christmas card using a wet or dry embossing technique. For my card, I used the dry technique. I embossing a clear sheet of acetate with a snowflake embossing folder by Tim Holtz. I used a snowflake patterned paper behind the acetate and a fun “fat” snowman digi stamp from Bugaboo Stamps on top. The coloured my little snowman with Copic Markers. The diecut sentiment, Let it Snow, also has a little embossed element to it. For the final touch, I added three snowflake buttons from my stash.
I look forward to seeing your techniques!
