C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 412 – 20th of April – Christmas

DTbadgeWe challenge you to make another Christmas card for youe 2017 stash! For this challenge I used another great image from Eureka Stamps - Dog Pile Digital Stamp ES-digi17703. I coloured the image with Spectrum Noir markers. I made two cards using the same image just to show that placement of the image can change to look of the card. I used papers from my stash. The sentiment is from SSS.

52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Technique – Shaker Card

 CCT - Design For Badge

One of my favorite card techniques is making a shaker card. I don’t make them as often as I should because they require lots of time and I have issues with getting them proper glued together. I purchased a fun village snowglobe thinlite die set by Tim Holtz called Snowglobe. When I started on this project the dies looked simple enough…NOT! There seemed liked a thousand little pieces, and vs cutting them out in various coloured card stock, I decided to cut them all out in white Neenah 80lb card stock and either ink or use my Spectrum Noir markers. This “simple” card took me over three hours to make! But it did turn out very nice. I am sure if I was to do it again, I could shave at least an hour off my time. The sentiment is from MFT, and the Stitched Snowflakes are from SSS. The  sequins are from Taylored Expressions.

This challenge will last for the whole month of April 2017 – anything goes as long as it’s Christmas – it doesn’t have to be a card, you can link any project as long as it’s Christmas!

Once again this year, all of these monthly challenges are being generously sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps - a winner will be randomly chosen using random.

Bugaboo Stamps are proud to sponsor this challenge – they are offering $21 of digital stamps to the randomly selected winner.

For my card I used the Sizzix Bigz XL Stocking Gift Holder Steel die. I cut the stocking in non-Christmas patterned papers to gave it that elegant feel. I added bling from my stash, and a sentiment from Papertrey Ink. I mounted the stocking on a Christmas themed card. The card dimension is 5 x 7. I made two different cards using different papers.
