February Christmas Cards

Hello! Well, we had another blizzard here in Wisconsin; it was our second huge blizzard of the year which shut down just about every road, highway, school and business in the area. And now were expected more snow today, tomorrow, and Sunday, so I thought since winter doesn't want to end, I might as well work on my February Christmas Cards. As most of you already know, I participate in the SCS Christmas Card Challenge, where we make Christmas Cards all year long so we don't have to do them all in November/December and drive ourselves crazy! I've committed to making 4 Christmas Cards a month so that I'll have 48 by the end of the year. Here are my cards for the month of February.

The first three cards all use stamps from The Crafter's Companion. These are very large stamps, so I had to enlarge all my cards to about 5 by 6.5. The size of these stamps would make them great for scrapbooks, so I will probably use them on winter scrapbook pages.

The first card uses images from the set "Snow Love". My sketch is from SSD60, and the paper is DCWV 'The Christmas Combo Stack'. I cut the image out and mounted it up on dimensionals and added Liquid Applique to the hats of all three characters. The button is a felt button from JoAnn's. Here is a close up for you.

My second card uses the image "With Love". The sketch is by MFT and the paper is DCWV "The Holiday Collection'. I distressed the tag by wadding it up in a ball, unrolling, and sponging ink on it.

And here is the close up.

My third card uses the image "Snow Buddies". Liquid Applique was added to the hats and the branches, and Crystal Effects was added to the berries to make them shine.

Here is a close up:

And finally, my last card uses a vintage digital image from Vintage Vanities. The image is called "Christmas Puppy with Stocking" I just fell in love with this puppy the moment I saw it. All my life I've wanted a dog that looked just like this, but my husband doesn't like small dogs, so he would never let me get one. Instead, I have had to settle with dogs that weigh more than I do. LOL!
The sketch is from I Love to Stamp, and the paper is from DCWV 'The Christmas Combo"

I printed the image twice and cut out and popped up the stocking so that it overhang the frame.

Thats all for today. Enjoy the warmth if you live in a Southern or Western state, I will continue to shiver and freeze for awhile!
Have a great day! Amy

  5. These are all beautiful, Amy. I think "snow love" is my favorite, really really adorable. We have been having miserable weather too, therefore I have been doing lots of organizing. Looking forward to spring.
