52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Challenge 53CCT 37-18

DT Badge

The 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge this week is to make a pop-up or cube card. You can find many videos/templates on YouTube, Pinterest and other search sites. You can also buy dies and svg files to easily make these cards. Since I own a Cricut Explore Air, I simply popped in my All Occasions Box Cards Cartridge and made a card that easily fits into an A2 size envelope. After I cut out the files, I assembled the card and added a couple of glitter stars, and Sue Wilson’s Creative Expressions Festive Collection Let It Snow Die.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 480 – 23rd of August – Back to School

Click here to go to challenge blog

This week at C.R.A.F.T. we are looking for a card with a back to school theme. For my card, I combined School Boy Andy from Pink Gem Designs and the Schoolhouse SVG card from Dreaming Tree. For andy, I printed the digital design with my laserjet computer, coloured him with Copic Markers, fussy cut him out and set aside. Next using the instructions from Dreaming Tree, I used my computer, Design Space, my Cricut Explorer Air, and cut and pasted the school bus card together. The final touch was the add Andy to the front. The inside of the card has a slot for a gift card.

This challenge runs for 2 weeks!

This week at Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Challenge we are looking for a Christmas project that doesn’t use a stamp or digital image. For my card, I used my Cricut machine and made a bendi card designed by Dreaming Tree from their Christmas Bendi  Cards SVG Bundle. If you have a cutting machine and have never checked out this company you are missing a lot! I used papers and snowflakes from my stash. I added an A2 blank card to the back of the bendi card for my Christmas note (optional). The SVG cut at Dreaming Tree includes a full detailed instruction sheet, video, envelope, and this bundle has 3 separate and unique cards. Note: This card folds flat.
