Merry Christmas in March! It's time for the Crafty Elves to share the Christmas cards we made this month!
I decided I needed to really get to know the Winter Gnomes set from Sweet N Sassy Stamps so my first three cards use images from that one...
I decided to keep all of my cards fairly simple in design and used a similar formula for each. I used up some old Doodlebugs papers and tried to coordinate them with the theme of my image. This sentiment is from the Winter Gnomes set.
I decided on that photo frame from Trinity Stamps because it was the perfect size for a small simple scene and for these image sizes... I cut some landscape from glitter paper using these Rubbernecker dies. I love them because they have stitching on both sides of the cut lines! I just trimmed them down to fit inside the frame. I also cut a few snowflakes from a couple different places like Paper Smooches and A Jillian Vance Design.
I think this one is my favorite... of course the coffee (or cocoa if you prefer) and decided to use an old Paper Smooches die set. Love the candies and cookie and they were fun to cut from Copic friendly paper and color them and then add glitter to some of them. I used a sentiment from an old MFT set because it was just right.
Did I mention I'm playing along with the Coffee Lovers blog Hop?? You have today and tomorrow to pay along too! I'm linking up this one for sure!
For my last card, I decided to use an adorable set called Spit Happens from The Cat's Pajamas... it's no longer available, however, you may want to head over to their shop because they've got big progressive sale action going on as they are going digital. Lots of fun stamps and dies on sale for 20% off at last check and I'm sure you'll find something you love!
Anyway, here's how I was inspired:
Aren't these guys adorable??? I had that MFT Happy Holidays die cut already cut and used the Fleece Navidad from an MFT stamps set because this one wasn't a Christmas set. I'm linking this one up to the Coffee Lovers Hop too because one of these little guys is drinking a cup of coffee! I love that the dies for this one cut out his cute little hooves.
