Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Design Team’s challenge this week is to make a card using no patterned paper. I decided to create my own background door by using various rectangle cuts of card stock. Once the door was finished, I added a Christmas Wreath die by Tim Holtz and a brad for the doorknob. I even created a tag on the wreath using the vintage Santa stamp on Shrinky Dinky plastic. The inside of my card reads, “Merry Christmas from Our Home to Yours.”
I look forward to see your creations.
The CRAFT Challenge this week is Animals. I used a “Must Have” stamp by DRS called, “Stained Glass.” DSR Designs actually make a number of variations of these stamps and that allow you to make a stained glass effect using them in combination with your other stamps. For more information, please check out their website and this fabulous tutorial. http://www.drsdesigns.com/stained-glass-pine-tree-card/. Also, you can run a search for DRS on my site to see other cards I have made.
For this card, I simply used the stained glass stamp to create a fun background for my deer die cuts. I coloured the background with Copic markers and added the deer, trees, frame, snowflakes, and sentiment.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge this week is to make a Santa card. I decided to use a couple of my die cuts from Marianne Design Collectibles – Eline’s Santa COL1391 and Eline’s Reindeer. I cut them out of foil and plain coloured paper fro my stash.
