I’m in denial. Surely it’s not time to start thinking about Christmas. Haven’t we just done that!! The year is flying past so quickly!!
This week at CTC, we are case-ing the Christmas section of the catalogue. Whilst I’m not really ready to start thinking Christmas yet, I do like the cards in this section and I especially love the Merry Moments DSP. So much so, that I couldn’t decide which sheet to use for my card, so I made 8 cards!!!
I was inspired by the card on the front page of the section, in the top right corner.
So I picked my 4 favourite patterns and, using the colours listed on the back of the packet, got my bases ready. I decided to make 2 of each one so that I could get a head start on my Christmas cards for this year.
To create the lines on the centre piece, I used the Chalk Lines stamp set. I also used the Festival of Trees stamp set for the trees and my sentiment came from Merry Everything stamp set. Except for the first card, I inked the sentiment using a marker as I didn’t want the dots across the top and bottom. I love using this technique!! I also alternated between using the foil sheets and the glimmer paper for a bit of bling. You always need bling at Christmas time!!
These cards were fairly quick to put together and would make a great card to mass produce.
I hope you have enjoyed my cards. Make sure you check out Tricia’s blog to see what loveliness she has made this week.
