Deer, trees, and snow

I created a fun card that will work for several challenges.

First challenge is Mod Squad with the animal themed holiday. I made this deer to have a red nose like Rudolph. This is definitely a Christmas themed card with the lights and red nose. I didn’t have a suitable Merry Christmas that would really fit, so I went with the greetings from the stamp set. This stamp set is Snow Wonderful by Your Next Stamp.

Second Challenge is Double D with trees. This evergreen tree was blended with a stencil from Newton’s Nook, called Evergreen. I cut a small portion of the trees out to use on this card.

The Third challenge is Make My Monday Challenge with Cute Christmas. I think this image with the girl and her reindeer are cute. It was fun to color.

The Fourth challenge is Global Design Project with Christmas. This card will be mailed for Christmas.

The snowflake background was created with a die from The Stamps of Life. I used and glitter cardstock placed on a blue background. Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops were added to the snowflakes, the tree, the lights, the reindeer nose, and the greeting.

This was fun card to create. I was thrilled to find several challenges to share this with. Thanks for looking and reading this long post.

He Lives

I completed several Easter cards this year. Most are being sent to distant relatives or older people who are not getting out, due to the virus and their health. Here is one of the ones completed.

Supplies used include: Banner Blessings stamp set from Maymay Made It, SU Framed Tulip embossing folder (retired), GKD/Thermoweb stitched rectangle dies, GKD Turquoise Sea cardstock, a combination of Spectrum Noir and Copic markers, and white paper from who knows where. I have many kinds of white cardstock and can’t remember which kind was pulled for this image.

This card will be entered in the Global Design Project for Easter cards.

Global Design Project #GDP213

This is the first time creating a card for this challenge. I was inspired by Johanna and Bonnie when they created their entry. I saw an idea, made a sketch, and began creating.

I used stamps and dies from The Stamps of Life: Snowflake Background Die Set, Merry Christmas, and elves2stamp. The paper is Lovely Lipstick, Smokey Slate, both from SU, and the green is Fresh Asparagus from Gina K Design. I added sparkle to the card with a Crafter’s Companion Sparkle pen, though it does not photograph well. The ribbon is SU, but I couldn’t find the color on the ribbon role. I added a piece of sparkly ribbon that kind of matched the glittery paper I used for die cutting the Merry Christmas. I like the sparkle as it adds something special to a Christmas card.
