I've made several Christmas cards this week, and the challenge at St. Luke's Charity Challenge this month is to create a Christmas card. This first card also meets the qualifications for the Less is More challenge this week. Here's my two cards:
I created both cards on my new Cameo (I'm loving all the fabulous things I can do with it!). I used a cutting file (the mother reading to the child) for this first card. I filled the image with black. I added a tree (also a cutting file and colored it black. I added the star (also a cutting pattern) and filled it with gold. The sentiment was also added to the image through the Silhouette program. Then, once I had everything where I wanted it, I just printed it on my ink jet printer and cut to fit the card front. It's difficult to see here, but the image is backed with some gold textured foil paper and then a layer of black. I added some 3 dimensional dots with Liquid Pearls and then dotted them with some glitter. I also added glitter to the star. I actually love how this turned out and next time I try it, it'll be much easier!
The second card was also created with the Cameo. I cut the tree from green card stock, then cut the shadow from some white card stock. I used a star punch to add a gold textured foil star to the top of the tree. The red dots are Liquid Pearls and then I added a touch of glitter to the tree. The sentiment is from Flourishes and was stamped with embossing ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.
I layered the tree on the same green as the tree and then on the gold textured foil paper. Tied a red ribbon around the bottom...and another card is finished!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments are always appreciated! Until next time....
