Christmas is almost here so I thought you might like to see what some of the Christmas cards I created this year look like. I will only give a brief description of each, but if you want more information regarding supplies used, techniques, or dimensions then please leave me a comment below and I'll provide more information as soon as possible.

Washi tape and glitter craft foam make this card festive!
I love purple, so I simply had to make a purple Christmas card! I used vellum, Nuvo Glitter Drops, and some silver glitter heat embossing to give this card some snowflake sparkle.

I am participating in yet another Color Dare! The challenge this time is to "use your 'Pastel and Soft' colors and neutrals of your choice" and the theme is once again "Anything Goes". I chose to make a pastel "Thank You" card for my parents. They deserve so much more than just a card to express appreciation for them... but it's a start.

This card design was inspired by a card I saw in the Close To My Heart Holiday Expressions September - December 2018 catalog (page 103). I love looking through my various catalogs for inspiration and then making my own different version of the cards I admire.

I am participating in another Color Dare this week. The challenge this week was to "use your 'Bright and Bold' colors and neutrals of your choice" and the theme is "Anything Goes".

She is learning more words each day, she can name her colors, and she loves animals... so I decided to make her a "Bold and Bright" animal card.

I am participating in another Color Dare this week. The challenge this week was to "use Kraft, New England Ivy, Candy Apple and Gold Optional" colors. Those colors simply scream "Christmas" to me, so I met the challenge by making a Christmas card.

Color Dare #320
Let's start with gathering some supplies! I pulled the appropriate colored cardstock, inks, a collection of CTMH Christmas themed stamps, and some Gold Tinsel heat embossing powder. You could probably use any variety of Christmas themed stamps, but I chose stamps from three different CTMH sets for this card.




I tend to think "country style" when working with Kraft paper so I settled into my "homemade country Christmas vibe", turned up the Ch…
