Four Cards for Christmas

Hello, Kirsten here with my regular Tuesday post. I don’t have anything new to show you this week as I didn’t get time to meet with Lisa before she went to Birmingham to demo at the NEC for J & C Creations. Hopefully, we’ll meet up this week at some point. So, I have four different cards to show you, all quick & simple, made with Hobby Art stamps & Joy Crafts dies.
For the first card I used the Craftwork Cards chipboard letters as a mask, placing them on a card blank & spritzing over the top with acrylic paints I’d mixed with water in some mister bottles. I then spritzed with a mix of pale gold mica powder & water. To highlight the word I doodled with a black waterproof pen. Georgie was coloured with watercolour pencils.


Card number 2. I stamped the Hobby Art snowflakes with Evergreen Bough distress ink, coloured Georgie with watercolour pencils & added Icicle stickles details. I cut two ‘hills’ from white card & embossed them & made a tree from scraps of glitter card.


Card number 3 couldn’t be simpler. Nitwits patterned card with a snowflake wreath on top. The die cut circle greetings are from an old CWC set of messages in my stash. They take distress inks really well, so you can change the colour easily.


Card number 4 is definitely not a traditional Christmas card. I coloured the card blank & a separate piece of white card with Peacock Feathers distress ink. Then I dry embossed the separate card with the Embossalicious Lattice embossing folder, adding a little more DI afterwards & matting it onto black card. The Joy Crafts snowflakes were attached with Cosmic Shimmer glue & adhesive gems put on top.
