Lacy Christmas card/ The Flower Challenge #63

I love lace and cards with lacy designs are my favorite. This lacy Christmas card looks like it was so hard to create but all I had to do was a bunch of die cutting.

Hello everyone,

We are just around the corner from Christmas. You all must have finished Christmas shopping but I’m always a late Christmas shopper. Instead I’m making more and more Christmas cards. This month at The Flower Challenge our theme is also “ Christmas “

Here’s my take on this challenge

Spellbinders large die of the month November 2021. This card was created to participate in the flower challenge for December 21

For my card today I used the Spellbinders large die of the month for November 2021. This die is specially created to make a slimline card but you can always use it to make a regular A2 size cards or any other project depending on your creativity.

I started by die cutting all of the pieces in shades of blue that I thought would go together. But for the background wanted a subtle pattern that didn’t overpower the beautiful die cut designs.

Take closer look at these tiny flowers that create a beautiful cluster. Mixes of different shades of blues and silver give this project a cool wintery vibe.

This finishes my card for today. Hope this inspires you. So don’t wait and start creating Christmas cards with flowers and post at The Flower challenge.

Circle Christmas card/ The Flower Challenge #61 Reminder

Today’s project is a circle Christmas card that looks like a Christmas ornament.

Hello everyone,

We are halfway through the month of October. This month’s theme is “Use a Shape” I am sharing a circle Christmas card I created as a reminder to participate with us at The Flower Challenge.
This is our 5th birthday and there are lots of prizes to win.

So without further ado let’s get to my project.

I decided to create a circle card that looks almost like a Christmas Ornament. First I had to create a circle card base to begin with. Then I added a circle frame with vellum in the middle.

The decorating of the front of this card was so much fun. I had bought some of the Christmas release dies by Tim Holtz a couple of years ago which has all the Christmas elements but I had hardly used it.

I cut out a few Christmas trees, candles, presents and some foliage with pattern paper. Started adding all these elements on my circle frame, some with liquid glue and some with foam tape for dimension.

The last part was to add a sentiment on my card . I usually keep some extra stamped and embossed sentiments strips in a cup which I reach out when I need one. The warm wishes sentiment was perfect for my card.

This finishes my project. Hope this inspires you to pull out your hardly used stamps and dies to create some fun cards for Christmas. There’s still time to participate at The Flower Challenge and win awesome prizes.
