Snowmen and Christmas trees... It must be time to make holiday cards!
The theme of this stop is "Christmas is for Kids -- Big and Small". The challenge is to make two Christmas cards -- an Any Hero Christmas card and a Christmas card for one of our heroes to send to a child.
So, I have two cards to share with you. While the cards are very different, they have a couple of things in common. Each card was inspired by a fellow card-maker/designer. Each card was made from stash 6-by-6 designer paper that I've had for awhile. And, each card was made using one of my favorite techniques, heat embossing with clear powder.
For a Child: Frosty's Lil Friend
Frosty's Lil Friend was inspired by Kathryn's adorable Santa card and by the all of the cute "shape" cards in one of my favorite craft books of all time. Thanks, Kathryn, and thanks, Leisure Arts!
|Paper: s.e.i. Kris Kringle collection; AC Christmas collection cardstock; garage sale fiber, buttons "dressed" with DMC floss|
For a Hero: Three Times the Greenery
Three Times the Pine was inspired by Ashley's September scrapbook layout design. Thanks, Ashley!
|Bo Bunny Father Christmas collection, stash cardstock; Hampton Arts stamp; heat embossing with clear powder; various "cutting" tools|
Is there blog candy you ask? Yes, there is!
I stopped by to see Terri at Scrapbook Art in Lewis Center, OH. I was hoping to find some cute kid-Christmas-card-related item to offer and picked up the stamp set shown at the right. Bet one lucky card maker is gonna make some adorable kid cards with this stamp set!
To qualify for the random drawing, link at least one Christmas card for a hero or a child by 11:00 A.M. EST, Sunday, September 9. Followers who link a card will receive an extra e-ticket in this raffle.
Can't wait to see all the holiday cards for our heroes and the little ones in their lives. :) In a couple of days, I'll post details (techniques used, decisions made) about the cards shown above.
Special thanks to Allison for organizing this year's Birthday Bash VCMP!
Finally, merry card-makin' to all and to all a good time!
