Christmas cards

Yesterday I made 100 Christmas cards - they were simple ones, using a variety of stamped images and digi images (mainly Charmed Dottie ones). Papers are a mix of DCVW, Dovecraft and Papermania. I made 5 cards for each design, because I will be selling them in packs of 5 for charity.

I'm a little late for My Time to Craft 79: snow buddies, but quite a few of these cards are good for that.

I used this sketch on the sweetest thing challenge 38 for quite a few of the cards, changing it a bit here and there - in fact it influenced the layout of many of these cards:











Some of the cards fit a few challenges this week:

Creative Inspiration
s Challenge 18 is 'Christmas in October', so they are all good for that. And Creative Card Crew 31 is 'It's a celebration' - so Christmas definitely is! Also the theme of this week's Saturday Secret Crafter challenge 52 is 'celebration'.

Fab's Big Christmas 40 is 'paper strips and tearing' - I haven't done the tearing, but there are plenty of paper strips on a lot of these cards.

Papertake: black, white + one other - the following three are appropriate for that (and they still follow the sketch - just turned):



Challenge 27 on Digital Tuesday today is 'music to my ears', so these carol singers seem appropriate for that (they are a Dottie download):


For this one, the kings were coloured with copics (as was the Hero Arts Santa stamp on one of the above cards), so this is good for today's Die Cuts R Us 10: get colourful:
