Non-Traditional Christmas Cards…

| Blog, Christmas, Home For Christmas, Stamping Shack

So each day we are getting closer to Christmas and I am nowhere near ready, in fact I have so much shopping still to do I’m not sure I have enough time to do it!!

Today I wanted to share 2 cards that I have made for Christmas, although they are far from the traditional Christmas card!  One had to follow the theme for a girl who loves ponies and one was for a skateboarding, guitar playing teenage lad!

Here is the result:

For this one I have used the Home For Christmas Range from Do Crafts.  The images are from The Stamping Shack.  I have coloured the image using Promarkers.  I tried to keep some traditional colour within the image, although it is very subtle as the Greens and Blues are often used for images of boys anyway.

This second card is again made using an image from The Stamping Shack.  I have added a snow effect to the grass using White Glitter.  The flowers I made using the Tonic punches which are so fantastic when trying to get a flower to match your project.

Both cards have been made as 8″ x 8″ easel cards.

That’s all for today, I had probably best get off to do some Christmas shopping!

Have a great day whatever your doing!
