Christmas Card Trio

*This post is part of the November promotion fortnight. Remember to leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway.*
Morning all, Kirsten here again. I'm covering Lisa's blog posts this week. She hopes to be back next week.
 Today I have three cards that began with one idea.
I thought about using the Imagination Crafts Fir Trees stencil as a template, so I applied
Silver Sparkle Medium through the stencil onto Woodware ribbed, kraft card..............
When it was dry I used a craft knife to cut out both trees & attached the ribbed card onto an Imagination Crafts background square - Blue Snow - that I had previously scraped Diamond Sparkle Medium on to with a palette knife............
I added some Hobby House aurora sparklers & pearl medallions, some diamond mesh & the greeting from the Woodware Clear Magic Patch Robin stamp.
For the second card I used the smaller tree, with patterned card  - Hobby House Snowflake Flurry Stripe & Ann Marie Designs Powder Blue Dottie. I added some Silver Stickles, liquid pearls & stipple foiled Diamond SM around the edges..............

For the third card I applied white gesso through The Clearing stencil onto Anna Marie Designs Lavender Lace Dottie card & used a torn piece of paper & Woodware Fluffy Stuff to make the hill for the tree to stand on.......

  2. Three more great ideas Kirsten. I do like the trees done on Kraft card. Will have to have a go at that myself. x Gill x

  3. Clever ideas, second card is my favourite, just think the backing papers set the tree off nicely.

  4. 3 very different and lovely certainly have thought outside the box!

  5. Beautiful cards. My favourite is the bottom one - I love the trees against the dotty background. xx

  6. What a great way to produce 3 cards from one idea! Love the bling... the diamond mesh is an interesting supply, I think I need some soon.

  7. Great use of the trees, 3 cards, good work.xx

  8. Beautiful cards. Love the idea of using the aperture left after cutting out the trees. No waste.

  9. I like the use of the backing papers with the stencils

  10. Great idea to use the aperture from cutting out the trees. W e do not waste anything
