Stampin' for Christmas Blog Hop!

Saturday 6 March 2021 United Kingdom

We are back again with the Stampin' for Christmas blog hop, bringing you ideas for your Christmas papercraft projects, once a month for the rest of this year!

It's 294 days until Christmas however, if you are a planner or simply love creating Christmas cards like I do, there is absolutely nothing wrong with crafting for Christmas all year round.

You'll find inspiration here today from papercrafters and demonstrators with a common love for all things Stampin' Up!

If you have arrived from Laura's blog or you are a regular subscriber, I am thrilled that you have stopped by - welcome to my blog!

I created this card straight after creating my last project. With the Peony Garden DSP and Champagne Foil Sheets still on my desk, I started looking through my stamp sets for anything Christmassy that is still available to order and let me tell you, I have very limited 'current' Christmas supplies. 

So, I decided to challenge myself to make a Christmas card using the Peony Garden DSP and my favourite Christmas dies - the Snow Globe Scene dies

The colours aren't traditional but I suppose, when are my cards ever traditional? 

I think it works, what do you think? 

It's definitely not a card for everyone but I am sure that there is someone in your Christmas card list that would love it!

To make this card I die cut the trees (from the Snow Globe Scenes dies) multiple times from  Champagne Foil. I snipped the trees into pieces so I could create a tree scene that wasn't following the same configuration of trees shown on the die. 

I then took a piece of the Champagne Foil and cut a curvy line free hand. I positioned the trees behind this strip before adhering the piece to the card.

The sentiment has been stamped from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in Gray Granite ink to match the DSP. 

For the finishing touch, I added a bow in white twine  I felt any other embellishment would have been too much for this modern and minimalist card.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog to see what I've created!
