Pretty Christmas Door

Hello Crafty Friends! It is Shirley back with another Christmas card.  We can never have too many Christmas cards.  I find that I always think I have enough and end up having to make more.

My card today was very hard to photograph.  The gold on the packages, the door plate and the door knob do not show up well. I tried every angle to get you a better picture.

I started my card with a white card base.  I layered it with white card stock.  I cut a red layer of paper from the Graphic 45 12 Days of Christmas 6" X 6" paper pad, and embossed it, so it would look like siding on the front of the house. The door was cut with the PoppyStamps Grand Madison Door die.  I used a punch for the black door knob and put a gold plate behind it.  I adhered all of the pieces of card stock to the card. 

Now it is time to start the Christmas decorations.  I used a branch punch to cut the green branches. I used glue to attach them to the door. Next, I used the PoppyStamps  Blooming Poinsettia die to cut my flower layers, and glued them to the greenery.  I added three gold beads to the poinsettia.  I cut two small gold squares for the packages and tied ribbon bows-then attached them.

I decided my door needed a little something else and I used the Peace on Earth stamp, from the Impression Obsession Christmas Sentiments, and stamped it over the door.  After completing this step, I still thought my door needed something else, so I started making garland to go over the door.  I took gold ribbon and added the poinsettia's with gold beads and  greenery using the Blooming Poinsettia die. 

I am pleased you came by to look at my card.  Stop back  tomorrow and we will have another card to show you!

Wedding Wishes

Hi friends, it's Jenny posting today, with a card I created for a friend's wedding.

I love the white on white look for cards it always feels so crisp and fresh.  I recently put together a fall card with a similar design and I decided to recreate it in white.

I first used the Spellbinders die that is similar to Spellbinders Botanical Swirls and Accents for two opposite sides of the 5.5 x 5.5 inch square front panel.  The card stock is white with a beautiful shimmer.  

I cut flowers out of this new Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms die. I used both of my McGill Paper Blossoms Tool Kits to form the flowers. For the largest flower I used all of the die cuts, and for the smaller flowers I used multiples of the smaller die cuts. I glued the layers together, and also used the glue on the flat-back Pearls in the flower centers. I adhered the flowers to the card using Joy! Foam Pads.  

The leaves are from a Cheery Lynn Designs die that's no longer in stock at Classy Cards 'n Such, but there are many beautiful Cheery Lynn dies still available. 

The Congrats word is a Penny Black die.  All of the details were cut using the same shimmery card stock.

Thanks for visiting and looking at my card today!

Hi, it's Diana today! It's starting to look a bit like winter here. No snow but the days are cloudy and it *looks* cold from inside.

Definitely time to make a cheery, fun, and bright Christmas card!  Unfortunately, when it's so gloomy outside, it's hard for me to take a good picture inside.  I usually like to take my picture with natural light - especially when using metal sheets.  Those are hard to photograph and do the shine justice.

Today I used the small ornaments from the Impression Obsession Christmas Icons die set, to be the letter "O" in my HO HO HO! I added a couple of Impression Obsession Pine Branch from which to hang my ornaments.

My "H" alphabet die and ornaments are cut from Spellbinders Precious Metals Craft Foil - all which are adhered to a white panel embossed with an embossing folder. 

Hope you can play along with this week's Classy Cards 'n Such Christmas Brights challenge!

Shiny Bright

Hello! Diane here with you today with my creation for our challenge this week which is Christmas Brights!

I usually have the traditional red and green in my house, but sometimes it's fun to get out of the "norm" and do something different!!

I started out with a much loved, but discontinued Stardream Serpentine Pearlized paper as my background. I cut the largest of  Spellbinders Floral Ovals from Pearlized Esse White Metallic paper.

Next, I cut Memory Box Clairmont Ornaments 4 times, using various colors from the Iris Sampler pack of Shimmer Sheetz.

To finish I cut Spellbinders Divine Elegance label, that I stamped using the JustRite Christmas Inner Thoughts stamp set.

We would love to see your creations in our challenges. Why not join in with us!!
