Christmas with Music Card


Good afternoon crafty friends, I hope you have enjoyed your Christmas however you spend it.  My project today is a Folding box Card with a Christmas/Music theme.  To create the base of the card I followed Marie Gamber's excellent tutorial.  Here is a side view.



This is an ideal card because it folds flat inside a standard envelope or it can be used to hold a gift for the recipient.

Card recipe:
White cardstock
Black cardstock
Kaisercraft Christmas paper pad
My Bestie Elizabeth digital image
Wild Orchid Crafts Pointsettia
Music notes stickers
Spectrum Noir pens
Glossy Accents

Fantasy Winter Wonderland

Good afternoon, I was very lucky to win a recent challenge on the Fitztown Blog and this is the digi I selected from their store.


Her name is Fae 36 and I love the image.  I coloured her with Spectrum Noir pens and added lots of Stickles and Glossy Accents.  I used a white scalloped card base and Kaisercraft Storyteller papers with an additional snowflake paper I had in my stash.  The snowflake die is a Jennifer Ellory and the swirl die was gifted to me in a swap.  The sentiment and deer are from a Winter Wonderland stamp set and I added a few small bling centres to the snowflakes and three black pearls at the top of the image.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Dreaming of a White Christmas


Another Christmas card, white card base and Wild Rose Studio Traditional Christmas papers layered on yellow cardstock.  I added green ribbon across the centre with a Merry Christmas motif on it  The image is Aurora Waiting for You from The East Wind Company but I though in this setting she could be dreaming of a White Christmas.  I coloured her in with Spectrum Noir pens and added stickles for sparkle.  The sentiment came from a BoBunny paper collection.  I added two small bling beads to finish off the card.

White and Silver for Christmas


Hello crafters, white and silver card today.  White base card run through a snowflake embossing folder on the front, a strip of silver glitter open weave ribbon on the left.  I used a Memory Box die for the tree on silver card, matted to white card which was cut with a Spellbinders rectangle die.  The sentiment is also a Memory Box die cut on silver card.  I added silver bling at the top and silver stars.  Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  A CAS style card which looks very dynamic, the photograph does not do it justice.

Christmas card/tag



Hello there, a Christmas card today with a vintage feel.  I started off with Kraft Cardstock and used a lovely vintage themed paper pad, BoBunny Silver & Gold Collection.  I matted the paper on cream cardstock, added another strip across the centre of the card to make a pocket.  I Made a small tag with the Merry Christmas sentiment embossed in gold to place in the pocket.  The image is Sherri Baldy's My Bestie 324 and I coloured her with Spectrum Noir pens and added Glossy Accents to the earrings and necklace.  I matted the image on the designer paper and added to the card with foam pads.  I placed a spray of gypsophila and red rosebuds with a poinsettia from Wild Orchid Crafts at the bottom left of the card and gold star stickers on the other corners.
