52 Christmas Card Challenge – 52CCT19-19 – May 18th – Theme: Choral

This week’s 52 Christmas Card Challenge Throwdown is Choral. For my card, I started by downloading Free Printable music sheets (I did a Google search). Once downloaded, I printed them to fit an A2 card. Next I distressed the music using Distress Ink. I decided to cut the sheet down further, curl the edges and mount them offset on the page. I added a little choir boy Digi stamp from Pure Innocent. I coloured him with  Copic markers. For my final touch I added a few sequins.

52 Christmas Card Challenge – 52CCT18-19 – May 11th – Colours – Brown, Silver, Turquoise

I made my card that month using my Cricut Explore Air and a wonderful SVG files from A Little Scrap of Heaven called Jiggle Bell Friends. The files are sold as a bundle and I used the reindeer. All the papers are from my stash. I added highlights with a white gel pen and Copics. The snowflakes are stickers I purchased during Christmas from the Dollar Store. I added a pom-pom nose vs the SVG file one provided. The finished card is 5×7.

For my card this week, I decided to make a 3D pop-up card. I have had this SVG file from The Dreaming Tree for some time and decided it was time to put out my Cricut and make one. I purchased the Tis The Season Pop Up Cards SVG Bundle (it includes 3 separate pop-up card designs) and this particular card is called, Let It Snow Pop Up Card SVG. I had some problems cutting it out. My Cricut didn’t like the card stock I selected, and the pop-up feature was problematic! I preserved and the results were amazing.
