It’s the season for Christmas cards and therefore I have another one to share today. I’ve used one of the new selfie stamps by MFT Stamps and stuck with neutral colours to go with the red. Die cuts from Honey Bee Stamps and Memory Box, letters and card stock by MFT Stamps as well as a Snip Art stencil, some acrylic paint, foam tape and a sentiment strip from Simon Says Stamp make up the list of supplies this time.
My third and final card for the most recent La-La Land Crafts release this time around. I’ve used the fun Australian kind of Santa for this one, and I’ve made a pocket for a tag, which could also be used for a gift card. Both the tag and pockets are really great and I will be using those a fair bit, for sure! It’s also fun to make a completely different type of Christmas card, quite far away from the winter themed ones I usually make!
In this second photo I’ve taken out the tag and put it next to the card so you can see it clearly. The pocket could be used for a gift certificate as well, if you prefer.
Deck the Palms clear stamp

It’s the middle of the month so we are ready for a new challenge at Copic Marker Norge. This time it is one of my favourite themes: blue Christmas! You have until middle of January to enter.
I have made a plain card this time around. I like my Christmas cards to be reasonably plain this year as you might have figured out already! The image is by Tiddly Inks, and is one of my favourite images for Christmas cards. It is called Reindeer Games. I’ve coloured it in with copics, but not the usual combinations. Both the blues and the colours I used for the hair are new copics I hadn’t used before. I like them!
The background is made with a snowy background paper to which I added white embossed snowflakes. I added the same snowflakes around the card using blue glitter embossing which I also used on the text stamp, which, by the way, is by Norsk Stempelblad and means “Santa hug”.
And another photo, because why not!
Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (hair) E71, E74, E77, (reindeer) E41, E43, E44, E47, C3, C5, (outfit) B32, B34, B37, B99, C3, C5, (bells) Y19, YR18, (ground) C3, C5 + white pen
The latest Tiddly Inks challenge is also a Christmas one, with the theme Merry Berry. Reds being the keyword. So I finally caved in and did a red instead of a blue Christmas card!
Hope you’re all having a wonderful Christmas time.
