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 #8

Hi! Christmas is going to be here really quickly and hopefully this post will give you some ideas for any last minute cards you need to get done. So, for this post, I thought I should share the cards that I did with the remaining silver chevron paper that I mentioned here. First up!

Using gold glitter glue for the border, I tried to make it as close to the corners as possible to create a fuller look. The snowman and word ‘Christmas’ are from echo park paper co. – Reflections Christmas collection. I used red glitter glue to go over the ‘Christmas’ to create more effect. The word ‘blessed’ is from my & my BIG ideas – Red and Pink Glitter collection.

For this card, I printed the borders with the words ‘Merry Christmas’ in the font Volutes. The snowman and stars are from Pentaloo’s Merry Christmas dazzlers – Snowmen and Traditional Christmas dazzlers – Northern Stars collections repectively. I really love how the snowmen are sitting on ‘snow’. HAHA!

In this next card, the trees are from Studio Calico – Ephemera Pack and the sentiment is from echo park paper co. – Tis the Season collection. And lastly!

The remaining silver chevron paper was used in this card. Using green twine to go around the silver paper, it was tied into a bow. It was then pasted on a cardstock and the sides were trimmed to fit the size of the silver paper. The christmas tree here is also from echo park paper co. – Reflections Christmas collection and the words are from 7gypsies – Postale alphabet collection.

So that’s how I used up the entire 12×12 silver chevron paper! Hope you all found some inspiration in this post!

The cards that I am going to share today is actually designed by my sister, and I really liked how it turned out! ((: So here it is!

When she saw the present embellishments on my table, she was like ‘oh, it would be nice to have a card filled with presents’. And so here are the presents! The presents are mostly from Ruby, Rock-it and { my mind’s eye }. The sentiment was also from the same Winter Wonderland set from { my mind’s eye }. I decided to add the blue glitter borders so that the card would have a more complete finish.

And cause I loved how the card turned out and we don’t have snow in Singapore…

I came up with this! The snowflakes are from Studio Calico and some cupboard chip set that I’ve had since a few years back. For some of the flakes, I added some pearl embellishment on them to give more shine to the card on a whole. The sentiment is from Art Warehouse. And for this card, I added a gold border.

So these are the cards I have to share for this post! Hope you like them!
