Happy December! I should be making more holiday cards, but just had to participate in a couple of challenges.
First up is a card for a new to me Time Out Time Out Challenges #124 I do follow Anita at My Papercraft World and I even had the pleasure of meeting her a couple years ago!
My card today is for the December challenge asking for something joyful. Pretty things like snowflakes and silver glimmer paper make me joyful, thus my card. The card is CAS, but pretty, I think.
Using my new this season die from Poppy Stamps, Inc. called Seed Snowflake Joy, I cut a piece of Stampin' Up! Night of Navy cardstock. I backed up it with SU Glimmer Paper in Silver allowing a tiny edge to show at the sides.The panel was placed at an angle and simply glued to a card base of Papertrey Inc. Basic white cardstock. Easy peasy, but I like it.
Next up is a card for CAS Christmas Challenge asking for stars. I only have one on this card. The Star of Bethlehem is fascinating the little fawn. Look at him staring. His eye is much blacker in real life as is his nose. He really is looking at the bright star, IMH.
The sitar is cut from the same silver glimmer paper and is the smaller die by Memory Box, Inc. called Star of Wonder. The little fawn is made from a Hero Arts October 2018 Kit stamp and die and done on kraft cardstock. I highlighted his spots with a SU Chalk Marker. As I am showing him at night, the background is black cardstock. Can you see that I used a Tim Holtz/Sizzix die but embossed with it instead of cutting. A SU stitched white circle highlights the fawn making him a star too! The snow is made with the Lacquer Pen from the same kit and my NBUS HA White Puff embossing powder.
My last card is the only one mailed so for. I made a Hanukkah card for a friend. I do not have a greeting stamp, however, several years ago bought this Menorah stamp from Northwoods Rubber Stamps.
So that's it for now. Back to making cards to hand deliver. Thank you for visiting.
