Christmas everywhere

Hello Everyone! Anna here and I have two Christmas cards to share with you today.

For the first card I started off by stamping images from City Girls: Winter Edition, colored them with Copic markers and cut out using City Girls: Winter Edition Coordinating Dies. Then I stamped a Mini Pine Tree with Couture Color – Crystal Garden Collection (The stars were stamped from Christmas Tree with Beach Blondie) and fussy cut it.

To create background I masked off the top two-thirds of the Scenes: Dept. Store Cling Background and stamped the image on the white cardstock with Light Onyx Dye. Next I ink blended Cali Blue Dye, Miami Cool Dye and Crystal Pewter. The sentiment was stamped with Noir.

I adhered the background on the card base and affixed all images to my card with foam tape . Lastly, I added Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel to finish off the card.

My second card is shaker card.

I started by stamping and coloring images from City Girls: Snow Day, Fireplace Holiday Accessories and Fireplace Accessories. To cut out all them I used City Girls: Snow Day Coordinating Dies, Fireplace Holiday Accessories Coordinating Dies and Fireplace Accessories Coordinating Dies.
Then I stamped the Christmas tree with Smoky Quartz. The second layer was heat embossed in glitter white. The Christmas tree balls were stamped in Valentine Red and the stars were stamped in Crystal Pewter. I cut out these images using Christmas Tree Coordinating Dies.

I masked off the top two-thirds of the Scenes: Fireplace and stamped the image on a A2 sized white cardstock (card panel) with Light Onyx Dye. For the shaker I made a window using three frames that I cut out with Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Small). I affixed all images to the card panel with foam tape. The sentiments from City Girls: Winter Edition were stamped in Noir.
To create background I used Mountains stamp set and Couture Color – Pewter Collection. I ink blended Crystal Pewter at the top of the background, stamped stars from Star Trails and embossed them with glitter white.

I added sequins from New Year Couture Mix and Blue Ice Couture Mix into the shaker and assembled the shaker elements together.

That’s all from me today! I hope you enjoyed my cards!
