Decoupage Christmas cards

Pile it on challenge 18 this week is '3 dimensional!', which is just right, because I needed to make a lot more Christmas cards and have done a batch of 18 decoupage cards.

The idea of 'Pile it on' is to see how many challenges you can incorporate for the theme.

Of course, as they are yet more Christmas cards, they are good for:

Creative Inspiration
s Challenge 18 'Christmas in October, Creative Card Crew 31 'It's a celebration' and Saturday Secret Crafter challenge 52 'celebration'.

Charisma Cardz
challenge 39 was 'decoupage' - I actually made three of these cards before the deadline for this challenge was up, but just didn't have time to photo and blog them, so I'm still linking there.

I must apologise for the photos - the sun was streaming in (can't complain in October), bringing a shaft of light and shadows - and I haven't got time to fuss too much about the photos, as I need to get on and make more cards.

It's a pity that you can't really see the foiling on many of these cards or the glitter on some, but you can get the general idea. Even though some appear to be flat, they are all decoupaged.

These first two are to send to children, so they are right for Lili of the valley 38: a Christmas card for a child:

The one on the left here is blue and red, which is the theme this week for Paperminutes 33; the card on the right is a windows scene for Fab's Big Christmas week 38: 'Santa looking in' card:

The theme for challenge 3 on Crafty Catz is 'snowmen and snowflakes' - these figure on quite a few of these cards, but certainly on this one below on the left and also on the one below that on the right.

Santa's sleigh on this card on the left is right for Winter Wonderland 19: sleigh bells ring:

and these are two more specifically for children (Lili of the valley 38):
