Christmas Card and Box

I made this card using dies and stamps from the Christina Collection, Merry Christmas die from Memory Box, some distress inks, gold ink and embossing powder, red ribbon and various card stock from my stash.I made the card after watching a YouTube tutorial, I altered a couple of minor things, like adding distress ink to the leaves, I used gold brads for the flower centres instead of stamens... etc.

Christmas cards made using Vintage Christmas card images

I found 9 Images of Vintage Christmas cards in my stash and decided to use them to make some Christmas cards, All the card stock I used on these cards except for the card bases was sourced from my cutoffs.

3 Christmas cards

I have seen a few You Tube tutorials lately where a beautiful background is made and then just a die cut sentiment is added so the background is the star of the card.. so I decided to give it a try and dug through my background stash of various backgrounds I made whilst playing and came up with these 3 cards..

Christmas card

I just finished this Christmas card, I used Darkroom Door Christmas inchies.

Card made using Crafter's Companion Ornate lace embossing folder

At my last ACTSA (ACT Stamp Artists) meeting I bought the Crafter's Companion Ornate Lace embossing folder and I made this card.


I also used Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet ink pad with a mini blending tool, Goldfinger vintage gold, the Hunkydory die from my free kit I have been playing with, spellbinders nesting die, coffee archival ink and some bling along with white and gold card. Oh and I think the stamp set was from stampendous..
