Quilted Christmas Card (CT# 117)

Today's challenge card was a challenge for me. I texted Catalina on the weekend and told her that she had challenged me with her pick and we had a good laugh. So here's my advice if you are recreating this card. 1. Don't get hung up on finding something to replace the snowflake in the background of the original card. I ended up completely ignoring this element. 2. Use whatever shapes you like to replace the circles. I used an oval, a circle and a flower and I think you still get the same look. If you follow this advice, I think it will make this challenge a little easier for you. I love how my card turned out and I learned something new from getting out of my stamping comfort zone.

Winter Wonder Note Cards


VIDEO TUTORIAL ABOVE

Simple is better on Monday Mornings and that's why I like to share easy cards with you on Mondays. The beautiful embossed snowflake is the centerpiece of this card. The raised texture is enhanced by gently stroking over the points with a sponge dauber dipped in your favorite ink color. Choose your favorite blue hue or choose a completely different color. A short greeting and a rhinestone jewel complete this card. If you want to check out how easy this card is to make, just watch my 6-minute video tutorial above.

Hearts Come Home Card (CT# 116)

Here is my CASE-ing Tuesday card a few days late due to forgetting to upload my photos before my trip to Canada and being sick after my trip. I cut the Hometown Greeting Edgelit out of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and it looks so pretty and sparkly in person, but doesn't photograph all to well. Then I used some Cherry Cobbler elements (the greeting, the ribbon and the Everyday Label Punch layers) to give the card a holiday feel. I love how this card came together. It looks quite different than the original.
