How I made this card:-
     Buy now
  • I really love these topper sheets from Hunkydory - this one is from the "Sparkling Season" Little Book of toppers and only used one of them.  
  • I first of all mat and layered it on to some "Snowy" Mirri card pre-cut A6 sheets again from Hunkydory,
  • As I felt it needed a bit of colour, I then added it on to a panel of "Green and White" spotty paper (this is from Kanban) leaving a small border around it. 
  • I also edged the whole panel using a "Green" alcohol marker and then placed it on to the 7" x 5" card which I had turned on its' side to make it a "landscape" one.
  • I had used the "Christmas Tree Edges" peel off stickers in some other cards and realised that I could use the letters that had been left out of the "Black" version to add the sentiment "Christmas Wishes" to it.
  • I had some inserts that came from Hunkydory and so cut out the "Christmas Wishes" one to fit the card.
And there you are - 3 very quick and easy and fun Christmas cards which are suitable for all ages. They are very simple to make using a card using just some peel off stickers. You can buy it on my website here

Trio of Christmas Tree C6 cards - very quick and easy to make... Day 335 of my 366 daychallenge

Trio of Christmas Tree C6 cards - very quick and easy to make... 
Day 335 of my 366 daychallenge

Hi Craft addicts!

Today's card is a trio of Christmas cards using some Peel off stickers on some C6 cards.

Trio of Christmas Tree C6 cards - very quick and easy to make

How I made these cards:-

  • These are peel off outline sticker which you can get from Craft Creations (the black one doesn't now appear to be available at the moment) but you can use any colour obviously.
  • The red one is using the red and gold "Christmas Tree edge" and all I did was to place it at the bottom of the card, making sure that the Christmas Tree edge peel off sticker was "butted" up to the open side of the card. (I had made one where I cut it out so the inside of the card showed through).
  • I then took three of the "streamer" bits that comes with the sticker and added them. I also used a "Father Christmas" sticker that also comes from Craft Creations and placed it to the left of the panel - as it was white, I wanted it to stand out a little bit, so coloured it slightly using some "Blue" distress inks.
  • For the other two cards, I repeated the above but used the trees from the "Christmas Tree Edge" sheet.

And there you are - 3 very quick and easy and fun Christmas cards which are suitable for all ages. They are very simple to make using a card using just some peel off stickers.

Hi Craft addicts!

Seasons Greetings Baubles and flowers Christmas Card

How I made this card:-

  • This card is a 5" x 7" white card that I have turned on its' side to make a landscape one.
  • I first of all cut out the "Bells" in Silver mirror card and then 2 of the "Poinsetta" again out of the silver card. These dies are from the Tonic Studios Christmas range last year.
  • I had a "bright red" C6 scalloped edged card and cut the front part off and placed it on the 7" x 5" card in the middle.
  • I used some "Black and gold" strips (Peel off stickers) and added them to the card to make a frame.
  • I then added the "Bells" to the middle of the red panel using Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue.
  • I cut the 2 "Poinsetta" so that just the large flowers could be used and attached them to either side of the bottom part of the card.
  • I also cut out the "Seasons Greetings" sentiment (I think it is either Tattered Lace or Tonic Studios) again in silver and glued it to the top of the card.

And there you are - a very quick and easy and fun Christmas card which is suitable for all ages. It is quick and simple to make using a card using a Bells and Poinsettia Tonic Studios dies, some red cardstock  and a sentiment from either Tattered Lace or Tonic Studios.

Hi Craft addicts!

So for today's challenge, I have made this really cute Christmas card that I have made using the baby "Rudolph" die from Tonic Studios and some patterned papers from Kanban.

With Love - baby Rudolph 7x5in Christmas Card

How I made this card:-

  • I then stuck the black "Rudolph" outline to some "White" cardstock using Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue.
  • I used the "Kraft" parts to fill in the main body and feet of Rudolph again using Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue making sure that they were the right ones of course!
  • I coloured his scarf in using "Red" and "Blue" alcohol markers and a brighter shade of "Red" for his nose!
  • I cut round the Reindeer leaving a small white border around it and stuck it to a mat of "Red & White" gingham check and "White" card - which was cut out from the "Elegant Oval" Tonic Studios die.
  • I then cut out a panel of "Red, White and Green" striped paper (from Kanban) and stuck it to the front of a 5" x 7" white card leaving a border at the top and bottom. 
  • Using some "Red and Gold" bauble peel off stickers, I added 2 strips to the each end of the card.
  • I added the topper on to the card using some foam pads and finally added a sentiment "With Love" which i had mat and layered on to a circle of red card and again used some foam pads to give it dimension.
And there you are - a very quick and easy and fun Christmas card which is suitable for all ages. It is quick and simple to make using a card using a baby "Rudolph" Tonic Studios die, some papers from Kanban and a sentiment from Craftwork Cards.

Rudolph on hand coloured background Christmas C6 card - 
Day 332 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

Today's card for my #366daychallenge is a Christmas card I made using a Tattered Lace die on a hand coloured background.


How I made this card:-

  • I cut out the "Reindeer" in the "Blue" patterned double sided card from Kanban using a Tattered Lace die.
  • I used a double sided adhesive sheet (I must remember to work out which side of the card I wanted it to show before doing it the next time!) which allowed me to stick the "Reindeer" down without any gungy glue going on the card.
  • I then coloured the card with some "Bahama Blue" ink (from Memento) and "Green - G01" from Generation INX (Stamps by Me) to create a landscape. I also used a Zentangle pencil to add a skyline and some shadow.
  • I also added the "NOEL" letters which are peel off style from DoCrafts.
  • Finally I added a few drops of "Duck Egg Blue" Nuvo Gloss drops to look like snow. I also added a drop of "Red Berry" to the Reindeer to make his red nose!

And there you are - a very quick and easy and fun Christmas card which is suitable for all ages. It is quick and simple to make using a card using a Father Christmas topper and sentiment.
