CHNC blog button DT

The CHNCCC is to make a card using some Red. I love this little digis called Ginger and Cup by Whimsey Doodle. He is so adorable. I made a large Card 5″ x 7″. I added stickles to make the frosting look real, paper pieced the mug and candy cane, then coloured them with Copics. The sentiment is a sticker from my stash.

52 Christmas Card Throwdown – July 21st, 2018 – Theme – Non Traditional Christmas Card

I am in charge of picking the challenges for July for the 52CCT Design team. When I thought of this challenge, I was thinking of ways to stretch my stamps and dies by using non-Christmas dies to make a Christmas card. For my first card, I used papers, stamps and dies from Photo Play designed specifically for Canada Day to make a Christmas card.

This month I am in charge of selecting all the challenges. For the colour challenge, I have chosen Black and either Gold or Silver! I made a simple card using die-cuts and dry embossing. I started with die-cutting out the Christmas tree. This die is by Creative Expressions Festive Collection – Christmas Tree Greetings Die Set by Sue Wilson CED3017. I cut it out from gold foil paper. Next, I die cut an oval from the leftover foiled paper and put that through my Big Shot using a Tim Holtz Snowflake texture fade embossing folder. Using the same embossing folder, I debossed the front of my card. The final set was to glue everything together.
