Yet another Bookatrix Christmas Card for Snoflake Challenge

I think I am getting there nearly up to date with the challenge I think - I am going to have to try and fit in some everyday general cards or I am going to make myself fed up of Christmas when it eventually arrives on another note least there is less to do then and just hopefully enjoy the season ha ha.

Using the Glitter Girls Bookatrix Board I have managed to make the following card - the holographic card is from home bargains - you buy a pack for 79p and the white card for the last book effect is from a pack of white card I buy from Wilkinsons in the create and craft range 75 sheets for £4.00. My topper is made from a snowman stamp which I have coloured in using pro-markers and finished by glittering the snowmen. Using a peel off and a snowflake punch then finished with a gem in the centre.

I hope I am explaining how I making my cards well enough for you to be able to create similar yourselves after all that is what my blog is all about. Please let me know if you require anymore information regarding any of my cards.

Another Christmas Card for snoflake Challenge

Hi this card is A5 size which I have used Christmas Flower stamp coloured in using pro-markers - poppy, green and lime - which I have placed in the centre of a card which I have used as background from Create and Craft two Christmas ago. I didnt know what to do with these cards initially even though most of the work was done I find it harder to make cards like these I prefer to make a card from scratch and go with the creativity. As time as progressed I have learnt to cut things up more and use them differently then having craft items sitting around collecting dust. Well back to the card as the background had to be cut and placed back together to hide the join I finished with red ribbon which is fastened just at the inside so I enabled to join a bit of ribbon with a tie as a bow effect (got the tip of Joanna Sheen)again the snowflakes are from a punch which I finished with a red gem in the centre.

snoflake christmas card challenge

Hi everyone still catching up with Christmas Card challenge and I am enjoying making Christmas Cards least when the time comes I will have a lot made (I hope) and hopefully even more sold and more money to spend on family at Christmas time. Wishful thinking I know but we can all dream.

Well the card I have made is square card 5 by 5 (I think) using a snowman stamp - which I coloured in using pro-markers and finished with glitter on the snowman. The backing paper is from a forever friends pack - I finished with a blue spotty ribbon and snowflakes from a punch with a gem in the centre.
