Challenge #38

This is my weekly entry for Bah!Humbug!'s Christmas challenge. We were asked to include reindeer (or Rudolph) in our project.
I have made a pocket card that can be used with the enclosed tag, or it could hold a gift card. The reindeer and red card stock were attached to the blue patterned paper only on the bottom and sides, so that it forms a pocket.
Materials used were: patterned papers from Deja Views' Fair Isle Christmas pack, natural twine, pre-made striped tag, a sentiment stamp "Share the spirit of Christmas", swirly red rub-ons, black and natural satin ribbon, and green bells. Snowflakes were punched out of the same red glittered snowflake paper that is above the reindeer, and added to the tag.
This was a fun card to make, and not too difficult. I hope you like it, and thanks for looking,

Challenge #37

This week on Bah!Humbug! we are to use swirls and flourishes on our card. CHNC has asked for glitter. So, again I have combined both challenges and have come up with this card.
I used My Mind's Eye glittered paper for the background and matted it on gold glitter cardstock. The same gold was used as a mat under the sentiment (rub-on), which was cut out using a Nestie. I added die cut swirls and two colors of satin ribbon to finish it off. I love the glittered papers because the glitter doesn't come off.
I hope you also like the card. Thank you for looking.

Challenge #35

For Bah!Humbug! this week, we are to make a card that focuses on the sentiment. (Sorry about the missing link. Blogger was being tempermental again.) I have chosen a white gate fold card covered with My Mind's Eye Wonderful Winter patterned paper, and Nesties for the solid center layers. I stamped the Joy sentiment using a clear stamp from the Inkadinkado Warm Holiday Wishes collection and added Martha Stewart gold embossing powder. Green organza ribbon finished off the front.
The same papers as used on the card front were added to the inside, and another Joy sentiment was stamped using brown ink.
I hope you like it, and thank you for taking a look.
