More Christmas Cards

Hello my crafty friends, I have more christmas cards to share with you guys today.  I was lucky to have two full days to make more christmas cards for my daughter's teachers.  Since I can't make them all the same, I decided to go with a theme, this set I use sky blue and white colour.

For this christmas elf card, I used luminance 6901 coloured pencil to colour the elf from Gerda Steiner Designs.  A silver gel pen and a sparkle blue gel pen to colour and doodle on the negative space of the presents die.  I also decided instead of having the sentiment at the front, I have it inside the card!

I have a lot of fun making these two cards.  Since the negative of this die is as gorgeous as it positive.  I used both and made two cards!   The background of the die cuts are created using a retired stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  I have another card made just using that stamp set and the details are at the bottom of this post.

I used watercolour for this card.  This is my first time using Daniel Smith for watercoloring and I had a blast!

I also have another christmas card using stamps from a retired stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.   The pine branch in this stamp set is super fine and it looks gorgeous with silver pearl embossing powder.  I also used this image as the background of the other christmas card above.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I stamped it with Ocean Waves ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.   Since ink colours deepened after heat embossing, I used a darker tone blue card stock to match the sentiment colour.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderfully creative day!  Products I used are listed below.
