More Christmas Cards Required!

Now that I’ve started my new job, I needed to make some additional Christmas cards for my new work colleagues. I just wanted to say thanks for making me feel so welcome.

This first card I made 7 different colour variations as I have 7 colleagues!

The blue one I’m entering in the following 3 challenges:

The stamp set is by Altenew called ‘Sketched Evergreen and I used Catherine Pooler Designs and Stampin Up inks. I added the silver glimmer paper to give the cards that special bit of sparkle behind the partially cut out tree.

The next cards is using that cheeky gnome again with a little bit of Christmas carol song text.  Stamp sets from Kaiserkraft ‘fa la la’ and Apple Blossom ‘Christmas Gnomes’.

Next up is an all white card. I used a variety of circle punches and a miscellaneous snowflake die that I cut out of some white glimmer paper. The sentiment is from a CAS-ual Fridays stamp set called ‘Merry Kiss-mas’.

Lastly this card I made for my hubby who has a December birthday and I wanted him to know how much I loved him and that he made my heart soar. I used a stamp set from PTI called ‘Flock Together’ which is stamped using an ink pad from Kaleidacolor ‘Desert Heat’ which I stamped on watercolour paper and then spritzed with some water to blur the image.

Thanks for looking through this long long post and I hope you have a great day.
