Classic Christmas

Having dug out the PM Classic Christmas papers for the cards I showed in the previous post, I decided to make a few more batches of cards using some of these papers - what a shame the red foiling doesn't show on the photo like it does irl.

These are for:

Party time Tuesday 46: red and green Christmas
Paper sundaes 99: anything Christmas
Make my Monday 27: seasonal - red ribbon (the spotted ribbon is from Handy Hippo)
Crafty ribbons 8: traditional colours for Christmas
Friendship's garden 6: anything goes Christmas
Our craft lounge 95: a clean & simply holiday Christmas

Nordic Christmas

When I saw what this week's Daring Cardmakers challenge was, I remembered some Papermania Classic Christmas papers by Stephanie Dyment that I thought would fit the bill, so I chose designs that had plenty of red and white and also reindeer.

This was the photo inspiration given on DCM and we were asked to think knitted jumpers, reindeer and lots of red and white:

This fitted in nicely with my plan to make lots of quick cards this week (oh dear, time is running out rapidly ...). These papers have some beautiul red foiling on them that, unfortunately, doesn't show up here. The glint that you can see on the reindeer at the top left is representative of the foiling - the card below it has a beautiful red foiled reindeer on the left.

So this is for:

Daring cardmakers: Nordic Christmas
Polka doodles 49: quick Christmas card
For fun: Christmas - anything goes
