I made these for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club July Christmas Challenge! I’ve been having so much fun being a part of the challenge this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how.

To make my card, I die cut the Merry Christmas once in white & once in red then pieced the red parts into the white outline. The solid mittens were die cut in white & the toppers were cut once in red & again in black & pieced. I die cut the wonky square then used the smaller size to cut the middle out & make a frame. The black print is part of a folded card. I bought the box of printed cards a long while back & I’ve used them more as papers on another card than as cards themselves. The red polka dot print is part of a Pebbles pad.

Here’s a look at the inside using a couple of old PSX images.

A big congrats to Donna, the newest Featured Stamper! I had a hard time choosing, but finally narrowed it down to THIS. I kept the colorful chevrons & birthday (my bday greeting is on the inside), but I used different images, different layout & mine’s a retro theme.

I stamped the tv & paper pieced the fun paper for the screen. It kind of reminded me of those test patterns (remember those?). So I also added some retro images from a couple of old PSX border stamps.
Here’s a look at the inside.

Isn’t this Kites Reverse die wonderful? I love that it’s all one piece & does the partial swirls as well. I die cut it into the Recollections heavy wt c/s…although it says it’s 110# it’s way heavier than the other 110# c/s. I wanted to be able to pull up the swirls slightly w/o worrying about it bending or tearing. I had a watercolor bg I made ages ago w/ blues & greens & a little iridescent medium (very sparkly IRL) & I loved the colors but wasn’t crazy about the overall look of it. So just using bits & pieces behind the kites was the perfect solution. I backed it w/ a very fine, smooth glitter c/s & let it show thru around the edges & under the kite tails. All that was left was to stamp the greeting & add a few sequins. 

Here’s a look at the inside using a few leftover glitter kite parts. 

Next stop is Vickie‘s Blog!  Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!
