Welcome to April & to the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club April Christmas Challenge! I’m part of the challenge team again 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. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself.

For my Christmas Wishes card, I used an embossing folder on the white bg, then paper pieced some strips for a faux woven bg. I used part of a box of Christmas cards I bought that are supposed to have a picture inserted so the entire back is 5×7 piece of this heavy weight Christmas print w/ little red foil accents. After I glued them, I embossed it all again.  The rest was just die cutting the holly out of green glitter card, the Wishes & backing oval out of red glitter card, then attaching a red foil frame over the bg. 

Here’s the inside.

Welcome to March & to the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club March Christmas Challenge! I’m part of the challenge team again 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. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself.

For my card, I used this cute little Reindeer image. After coloring & die cutting w/ the matching die, I put him on a tag die cut. I cut another tag out of white glitter & split it down the middle to have some show on either side. The Merry was die cut out of red glitter paper. I die cut two bows &  split the striped one to edge the white glitter one.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

We have a really wonderful site for the Inspiration Challenge this week..Fine Art America. I had a really hard time choosing, but finally went w/ THIS picture. 

I didn’t have any fox images or dies (will have to see about that!), so I used a deer family die instead. I die cut them out of sand colored c/s then used Prismacolor pencils to add a little color to them.  The snow hills & birch trees were cut out of white & shaded w/ Prismas. On the lg black bg, I splattered it using a paintbrush & some white acrylic paint. Usually, I like to have a greeting on the front & it feels a little odd not to have one & not to use any stamps at all, but I guess I’ll get over it  😉 

Here’s a look at the inside.
