52 Christmas Card Throwdown – CCT3-19

 

Our theme this week is Silent Night. I have a wonderful paper with the music of Silent Night but in my messy craft room I was not successful in finding it…insert sad face! So I made do with what I could find. I used an older Hero Arts stamp called Snowing Village CG396. Using my Misti, I stamped the images several times to ensure I got a black sky. I coloured the houses using Copic markers and added glitter mist to the full card front. The sentiment is recycled from a Christmas card.

CHNC blog button DT

This week we are looking for a card that uses a sentiment as the main feature of the Christmas project/card. I made a quick and simple card using some of my Christmas dies. For the sentiment, I cut the word JOY out twice and used the white cardstock as the O and silver cardstock for the J and Y.

A great start to the New Year, is to start on your Christmas card stash for 2019. Our design team is challenging you to create a Christmas themed card. I used a stamp by Tim Holtz that I simply sponged with Vintage Photo Oxide ink. The sentiment is from Crafty Sentiments called, Winter Wonderland. The papers are from my stash.

CHNC blog button DT

This week at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge we would like to see a Creature as the Feature to the card front. I started my card by stamping the various polar bears from MFT - BB Polar Bear Pals. Next, the coloured the bears with my Copic markers. For my sentiment, I selected semi-transparent paper and used a gold rub-on sentiment by Prima Marketing. I made the sentiment into a fishtail banner and adhered it to the card front.
