I made 70 Christmas cards this year. I started late, in November, and I have a resolve to make Christmas cards throughout the year so I can send more out to more people next year. Here are the designs I came up with this year.
I liked this one very much, I loved the vibrancy of the colors! I used black embossing powder and embossed images on watercolor paper I'd previously painted. I can't remember who made the Nativity stamp but the sentiment was from Avery Elle.
This one I lifted the design from Nicol Spohr's video on You Tube. I loved the soft "glow" the overlay of vellum gave to the lights. Die set here is String of Lights from Lawn Fawn.
This card was kind of a simple design. I liked the retro feel of the paper, which is from Pebbles, Inc. I stamped the sentiment (which is from Avery Elle) using Versamark watermark ink and embossed using red glitter embossing powder from Zing.
I KNEW I had to make some cards addressing the nature of this past year. So I chose "Oh Snap" from Lawn Fawn. I have a ton of this gingerbread paper, too.
This was the original watercolor card I made. I only made one of these, as I felt it wasn't Christmassy enough. I liked the glitzy nature of it though. Sentiment is from Avery Elle.
For this card I kept things simple. Using older papers from my stash. I also had the paper already die cut out from a craft show I had done last year so it was easy to put together. I like using kraft papers for Christmas cards, and I liked the sheer gold ribbon. Gold embossing powder on the sentiment here, which is from Avery Elle.
This one was another design idea from Nichol Spohr, from a video on you tube. Stamps from Lawn Fawn, colored with Copic markers. I fell in love with that deer tangled in the Christmas lights!
I used a Di-namic die for this card, and made a snow background with clear glitter embossing powder.
This card was my favorite. I made this card for my brother in law who has a French bulldog named Franklin. Franklin lives in San Diego, and he'll never have a white Christmas, but he does on this card! Presents, tree, dog dish are all from Lawn Fawn, as is the stitched hillside border. That adorable doggie is from Avery Elle. I colored this with Copics. I had some tan paper with white dots on it and I used a layer of vellum over it to make it look like a snowy winter sky.
I did make a few others that I neglected to get pictures of, unfortunately. Thanks for looking!
