Celebrate the Season

Today's card really is the last one! It's a quick card I made this afternoon to go with a friend's Christmas pressie.




I've used a very girly mini diva Christmas image from Pink Petticoat - coloured with pro markers and highlighted with silver gel pen. The image is mounted with foam pads on a dark red card base and I've made the bow using sheer dark red ribbon and gold thread and attached it with wire.

I've entered this image into the challenges at:

Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - whatever is still needed for Christmas

One Layer Robin

I love one layer cards - they are so quick and easy to make! As usual I've used a Digistamp Boutique image - it really is the place to find the cutest digis.



Instead of my usual colouring medium (pro markers) I've used watercolour pencils. I've added a touch of glitter on the hat and boots and a pom pom.

A Snowman For Nanna

Today's card was made using an old digi from The Digistamp Boutique - the Santa frame from the Christmas Frames set.



It's for a child to give to their grand parent therefore the naive childlike feel to this digi is perfect. I've used a large 7 x 7 scalloped base therefor the digi is quite huge. I've coloured it using pro markers and matted it using some holly patterned paper. The nose, hat and scarf have been decoupaged to add some depth.

Golden Baubles

I've nearly finished my Christmas cards now - only another 10 or so to make. Today's card took no time to make! I've used some bauble peel-offs I've had for years - they actually look really good against the cream linen base card.



I've used some dull gold card for the matting and added a bow (part of a Memory Box die) and a gold peel-off heart on the middle bauble. Very simple to make but the shiny baubles look lovely in the light.

Kraft and Blue Christmas

Today's card is for a 4 year old boy so the perfect image to use is the pre-coloured 'Winter Philip' - a cute digi I acquired some time ago from Pink Gem. I've mixed a scalloped Kraft base with pale blue spotted and dotty papers from Papermania's Spots and Stripes Festive collection.




I've distressed the edge of the patterned paper and added glitter (always difficult to photograph). I've also added some snowflakes and a pom pom on his hat. The wording is peel-offs coloured with a dark grey pro marker on punched matted circles.

Joyful Hearts

It's a freezing cold day here in the North East of England - no sign of snow but Winter woollies are very much needed.

Today's card is for the niece of a work colleague - the request was for something pink and girly! I've used some die-cut toppers from NitWits Joyful Hearts range - perfectly pink.



I've created the 'snow' using some fake decorative snow I bought from the Pound Shop - it looks and feels very similar to 'Flower Soft' and in the right light has a bit of a twinkle. The background is some pink and white spotty paper from my stash.

I've entered this into the challenges at:
