White Deer

Today's card is a little bit girly, almost white on white and was very quick to make as I'm quickly running out of time in the Christmas card marathon...





This deer die is soooo pretty! I used foiled patterned paper for the die-cut ring and added even more bling in the form of gold pearls on the antlers. The final touch was a red pearl for the nose!

Tartan Trees

I'm still making cards with those lovely Alley Way trees...




I lined up the tree digi stamps in Publisher then re-formatted the images and changed the colour of the stamps from black to a rich dark red. I then coloured using a dark red/burgundy pro marker, and added various stars and a punched heart.

The backing dp is a lovely tartan from my stash and I've matted using burgundy and gold papers.

Winter Wedding

Today's card is for a wedding at the end of the month...




I've used a Lili Of The Valley topper from one of the art pads they used to make - I wish they still did these pads! The image was cut using an oval die then matted on coordinating pink card. It was then mounted using foam pads onto the background fancy die. I've added some flat back pearls and some flowers and fancy scroll dies in the corner. The greeting was made using Formal 436 BT font.

Here's another photo is a different light, though I do like how the photo above show off the textured card.

Cute Crimbo Couple

Another five 'quick cards' (read basic layout) made this afternoon. I've used a cute topper I found in my Christmas stash - it may have been cut from an old shop-bought card...




I mounted the image on gold mirri-card and used some pretty gold star patterned paper as a backing. The greeting was printed using Formal 436 font and I've added a tiny holly branch in the corner with gold pearl 'berries'.

I'm entering this into the challenges at:

Crafty Friends #70 - Christmas
Creative Fingers #140 - anything goes
Crimbo Crackers #144 - quick and easy
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge #358- anything goes
Cute Card Thursday #502 - anything goes
As You Like It - Christmas or non-Christmas and why. Definitely Christmas - I love playing with shiny and glittery papers that can look tacky at other times of the year. You can never be too blingy on a Christmas card!

The CAS-est of CAS Christmas Cards

Today's card was ever so simple to make!. I got this lovely tree digi stamp  from The Alley Way Stamps website a number of years ago (it was free!)...






I printed the image twice (it has 3 trees) and coloured then fussy-cut five of the individual trees. I mounted the trees on the base card using foam pads and added a tiny glittery heart sticker for a bit of bling. The greeting was done in Hobo Std font.
