Hello! Today I have my June Christmas Cards to show you. I play along with the Splitcoaststampers Christmas Card Challenge where we make Christmas Cards all year long so we don't have to make any during the busy Holiday Season. I make four Christmas Cards a month so that I'll have about fifty cards at the end of the year. Here's my first card:
To make this card, I used an old My Favorite Things image called 'Merry Christmas'. The sketch is from I Love Sketches. I paper pieced almost the entire image except for the tree, presents, list, and spool because I have always found this image so difficult to color. It was a lot of work to paper piece it all, but I really like how it turned out. The flower is from K & Company.
My second card uses a sketch from Taylored Expressions (TESC150). The paper is Prima 'North Country'. The images are from Hero Arts and the sentiment is from the dollar bins at JoAnn's Fabrics and Crafts. I put Flower Soft on the branch and Liquid Applique on the birdie's hat.
My third card uses a sketch from Splitcoaststampers (SC317). I've had this unusual sketch laying on my desk for awhile now. It was so different I didn't know how to use it, but it worked well with this small image. The paper is Prima 'North Country' again. The image is from Clear Dollar Stamps. I put Liquid Applique on the squirrel's hat, and Flower Soft on the branch again.
Have a great day! Amy
