Christmas cards

Well it is that time of the year and I have started on making Christmas cards.  Most of my cards have been created using CM products, but I have also used other scraps that I have had in my scrap drawer.  I have also got a book out of the library with old fashioned images which makes lovely vintage type cards.  All these images are copyright free  which is even better.

This card has been created using CM Noel papers and a die cut.  I have also used the red Enchanted ribbon which goes really well with the Noel range.  The stamp is from Rubbadubbadoo.











This is one of the images from the library book.  I have put a little glitter on the snow in the image.  I have used my CM custom cutting system ovals to create the matted image.  I have finished off with a Peelcraft Christmas greeting.











I have printed off an Enchanted paper from Storybook Creator for the background.  The ribbon in the background and the die cut is from the Noel range of papers.  I have used white liquid applique and shook some glitter over the top to create a snow effect.











Noel ribbons have been used here and a Noel die cut with a Santa also printed from my Storybook Creator placed in the centre.  The strip on the left has been created using my CM border system twinkle chain cartridge out of Enchanted embossed paper.  Finished off with a couple of Enchanted embellishments.








Once again I have used a combination of Enchanted papers and Noel ribbon and die cuts.









I have printed off an image from my Storybook Creator and backed it onto a piece of scrap paper that I had in my scrap drawer.  I love the colours in this card.











This Christmas tree is a very popular image on Pinterest and is so easy to do.  I have used a 5 inch circle of paper and then cut that in half.  I scored about 1.25 inches along from the edge and then folded it back.  I then folded that fold onto the edge and then back onto itself.  Sorry about the confusing instructions but there are very good videos on You Tube.  Here I have used the Enchanted bling for the tree decorations, and Enchanted papers for the background.  I love these colours for Christmas cards and the Enchanted embossed papers mean I don’t have to use an embossing folder to create the dots on the white oval.  The green Enchanted ribbon makes a nice edging when a piece of card is placed on top.











In this card I have used some scraps for the ribbons.  I have used my Snowman punch and put them on the circles.  Peelcraft greeting finishes this off.








This angel is another image from my library book and has been placed on an embossed red card and finished off with Peelcraft corners, lines and greeting.  Glitter glue has been used to highlight the wings and snow.











Similar card to the last one with another image from the lovely library book.  I have highlighted the snow with glitter glue.











This card is made from Noel papers and a die cut with a Peelcraft greeting.








Another ‘scrappy’ card from scrap drawer and again the lovely image from the library book.









Another card with scraps and an image from my Storybook Creator.








As you can see cards are so easy to make and it is great to use some of scraps.  The library is a great source of information and images.

Happy cardmaking
