Christmas shades of blue

This is for Sketch Saturday 112:

My base card is sapphire stardream, which sparkles. The snowflakes card is from last year's Patchwork Pals kit (I like to mix and match rather than use the supplies as suggested). The fancy foiled sentiment is from the QVC TSV kit received this week.



The card is also for:

Magical crafts 19: 'Christmas in July'
Ooh-la-la 58: 'Christmas in July'
2 sisters 2: 'Christmas in July'
Sundays with Crissy 7: 'Christmas in July'
Christmas cards all year round July: 'anything goes'
Polka doodles week 29: 'Christmas in July'
Alota 39: 'glitter and pearls'
Everybody art 100: 'blue/white'
Sentimental Sundays 12: 'for men' (I think this is a suitable masculine card for Christmas)
Donna's den of crafts 3: 'it's a man's world'
Alphabet: 'M is for men'
Aud sentiments 7: 'choose your own Christmas sentiment'

Sparkly Christmas

I'm still in Christmas mode (need to stop this trend soon and make some other cards). Anyway, this card is for the sketch given for Always playing with paper 7:

I love making Christmas cards that involve stamping, but I need to make a lot of cards (with what we send and what I sell I usually make about 600 Christmas cards), so I need to be able to make some that don't take too long, but still look presentable enough for people to want to buy them. So I succumbed again recently to buying a Christmas TSV from QVC, so this card uses some white and gold foiled card in the background. The image has been layered and decoupaged. The strip of green across the middle is a piece of PM A Christmas Carol. The baubles and stars are glittered on top of the foiling.


I'm also linking this for:

ABC Christmas: 'O is for ornaments' (I hope baubles and stars count)
Magical crafts 19: 'Christmas in July'
Ooh-la-la 58: 'Christmas in July'
2 sisters 2: 'Christmas in July'
Sundays with Crissy 7: 'Christmas in July'
Christmas cards all year round July: 'anything goes'
Polka doodles week 29: 'Christmas in July'
Anything goes (Craft Den) 8: 'stars'
