52 Christmas Card Throwdown – Challenge 52CCT 30-18 Sketch

DT Badge

This week at 52 Christmas Card Challenge, the Design Team is looking for a card based on our Sketch. I created my card with my new dies from Creative Expressions – Build a Snowman and Let it Snow. I started by die cutting all the pieces I wanted for my card, then arranged the design. I added ink around the outside of the center piece die by Spellbinders, arranged my snowman and lantern and added the sentiment.

This week the Design Team from Craftyhazelnut’s Christmas Card Challenge is looking for a Christmas project featuring an angel. I just received a number of dies from the Creative Expressions Festive Collection. I used the 2018 Angel die along with an older Spellbinder’s die to create my 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.

Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge 393 – 7 July Use some twine or ribbon

CHNC blog button DT

The CHNCCC is to make a card using some ribbon or twine. I made a card using the Christmas Tree Greeting die by Creative Expressions. I die-cut it from black cardstock, glued it on an oval die-cut from gold fold cardstock, then pasted it on my dry embossed (folder by Tim Holtz) black cardstock and finally on my card front. Of course, I added a ribbon and bow to complete the theme!
