Scrooge’s Dream – I Hate Christmas

What kind of card do you give someone who hates Christmas? Sounds like a riddle doesn’t it? This was the most difficult challenge for me in the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge because I figure if someone hates Christmas, why give them a Christmas card?!!

I decided to go with more sombre colours and minimal embellishment for Mr Grumps! The Peace & Joy stamp set was perfect for creating the stamped background in Basic Gray and Misty Moonlight with a pop of Shaded Spruce just to give a hint of the Christmas Spirit (Past, Present and Future).

Some die cut leaves from the Forever Fern bundle – in Gray of course, adds some depth and interest without being festive. The sentiment chosen from Itty Bitty Christmas is neutral, making it suitable to give to anyone who doesn’t celebrate Christmas.

One of a Kind Snowflakes

Day 10 of Martin’s Mayhem #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge is a sketch challenge. I drew inspiration from the snowflake picture on the sketch itself to create my card. We all know each snowflake is unique and my snowflakes today are one of a kind because they are Rainbow Glimmer snowflakes.

The Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper provided my background for this card. I used a sponge dauber to highlight the raised areas of the paper with Seaside Spray. This gave a subtle hint of colour to this beautiful paper.

I die cut a couple of snowflake clusters from Rainbow Glimmer paper and cut them apart to work with the sketch.

The sentiment was mounted on a frame from the Stitched so Sweetly dies. I embossed this with the Seabed embossing folder as I love the detail on this.

A few sequins add a bit of extra shine to this card to balance with the softness of the vellum background.

Christmas Tree of Triangles

Martin Stone’s Colour Challenge for Day 6 of the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge immediately set me thinking of a modern twist on Christmas. Granny Apple Green, Melon Mambo and Basic Black – I had imagery of sleek lines and angles with these colours.

A Christmas tree of triangles was going to give the look I wanted. I chose the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper as it had these colours in it (including several others) and had some sheets with simple patterns and others with ombre colouring which was perfect for my geometric look.

I used the striped stamp from The Right Triangle stamp set and die cut it with a square from the Stitched Shapes dies. A simple sentiment keeps this card clean and simple.
