April Christmas Cards

Yes, I know. It's the month of May. I'm late on getting my monthly Christmas Cards done on time again. As most of you know, I play the Christmas Card Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. We make Christmas Cards all year long so we don't have to make a hundred of them all at once in November/December. I've committed to making 4 Christmas Cards a month, so that I'll have about 55 by Christmas, but I'm always running a little bit behind. It's really, really hard making Christmas Cards in Spring! Snow is the last thing I want to think about.

Anyhow, to help out I combined some of my Christmas Cards with other challenges this week. My first one uses last week's sketch by My Favorite Things. I put Liquid Applique on the hat and puff. The sentiment tag is actually a button and there is a felt snowflake behind it. My second card uses a digital image by Wink Wink Ink called 'Snowbody'. The sketch is this week's sketch from Splitcoaststampers (SC331)

And finally, I pulled out an old retired stamp set from Stampin Up! called 'Angelic'. The angel and main image panel are popped up on dimensionals. I sprayed the angel with Glimmer Mist so he really shimmers in real life. The designer paper is from Papertrey Ink, and I used a Metallic Gold paper as an accent.

If your wondering where my fourth Christmas Card is, its HERE. I posted it awhile ago to play in a Doodle Pantry Challenge.

Have a great day! Amy
