Welcome to this month's Crafty Elves' Countdown to Christmas! We pledged to make a card a week for the year and every 25th of the month my crafty friends and I share the Christmas cards we made that month! Be sure when you leave here you check out what they have for you today:
Now! Here is how I was inspired:
There's a new release over in the Rubbernecker shop and I LOVE it! This one is using the new Christmas Inchies stamp set! And I used the cool Shadow Box die to create a 3-D card. You know how much I love dimension and layers!
I love this Shadow Box die and these inches are perfect for creating a cute holiday scene in it! I was able to easily create layers for it by using the die to cut a second box from printed paper and then just cut on the embossed fold lines and trimmed the pieces a tiny bit smaller. This one fits on a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" base but you'll need to present it in a box because it definitely won't fit in an envelope.
I used the Inchies again for a slimline... I just love these adorable little images!! And those Christmas lights are awesome. I had fun with a non traditional color scheme too.
My sentiments on both of these Inchies cards are stacked sentiments on the set, but I needed them to be long so I just stamped them and then cut them apart!
And then I turned to the adorable Snowmen With Presents set. I decided to use a couple of the critters from Wintery Friends on both of these... they were perfect!
For this one I used some design paper for my background and stitched hills to cut glitter paper for my snow.
For this one, I used a die cut from the slimline clouds to create this background along with some Color Fuse Ink. The Christmas lights from the Inchies set came in handy for this one and the bunny is from Wintery Friends.
And that's me! I have links below to all of the Rubbernecker products I used for today.
Don't forget to head on over to my crafty friends' places and see what they've created, but before you go I have a winner from the comments of last month's post:
We're playing again this month! Leave me some love and I'll pick a name and send you some Happy Mail.
