Christmas Cards 2013 #9

I have some BLUE christmas cards to share today!

I started out doing this card, though as you can see, I’m really really bad at stamping. But I still like the design, so ignore the smudge and know that what I’m really sharing is the design! HAHA! The snowflakes are from Martha Stewart Crafts – Wonderland Snowflake Embellishments, and I cut the blue squares based on the size of the snowflakes.

From there, I cut out more blue squares, did some trimming and contemplated on what I can do with them. So based on that chipboard that I got a number of years ago, I fiddled around and got this! The border was added with blue glitter glue and some embellishments were added to the corners.

Another blue card is this! I used the blue glitter glue for the borders again then pasted a blue paper on for the background. Snowflakes from various embellishment sets that I have were scattered around. The sentiment is from echo park paper co. – Reflections Christmas collection and the snowman is from Pentaloo – Merry Christmas dazzlers collection.

So this are the BLUE cards that I’ve got to share! Hope you got some inspiration for a BLUE Christmas! ((:

Christmas Cards 2013 #3

For the card(s) that I have to share today, I actually saw the design from somewhere awhile back. I think it’s from Anthropologie or Rifle Paper Co, but I can’t seem to find it on their website anymore. Anyways, when I saw the design I really liked it, but as I have terrible handwriting, I have been procrastinating about making it into a card on my own. But I’ve finally found the courage and here they are.

First Attempt

First Attempt

So I basically wrote out the words roughly with a pencil, then go over it with a black fine point Sharpie pen. But I realised that the lines don’t seem to flow nicely cause they weren’t drawn over too well. And so, I decided to go over it with the gold glitter glue. It made it look much better and I really liked the effect, though it’s still no where near perfect.

And in my attempt to perfect it…

Second Attempt

Second Attempt

I wasn’t too pleased with the spacing of my lines at the end. So…

Third Attempt

And then I thought… This is actually my lowest cost card and since I like the design so much…

Fourth Attempt

HAHA! This one I had the most difficulty with, the spacing gave me a headache and I re-sketched quite a number of times. But as you can see, it is still no where perfect. But anyways, I still like it a lot.

So I hope you all like this design as much as I do and try it out sometime! ((:
