Cards. Gimme More.

As you may have gathered I am in a “card moment” right now. I have created some interesting ones for Christmas using a white background with green and red accents, which – I think – looks cheerful but not brash.

So here’s the first one: Nesting Squares again, Craft Concepts’ Merry Christmas embossing folder, Quickutz ornament die.

 

For this one I used the card die from the Quickutz Spring Special Delivery set, the Sizzix Christmas embossing folder and the Quickutz Doublecutz Gift die.

 

Sorry for the pics, lighting is less than perfect…

Birthday card

Some time ago a friend asked me to create a birthday card for his father. This triggered a few ideas. The first one is related to the fact that the guy likes gardening and tulips in particular.

So I decided to create a green background, cutting it in my Cuttlebug with the Quickutz Nesting Squares, then I embossed it with a grass pattern (Fiskars Texture Plates), leaving a plain border. Then I took out my Quickutz Doublekutz Tulip and punched stems in different shades of green and calixes in different colours; using the same green paper I cut the Rainbow Alphabet, and here’s the result!

I am sorry for the quality of the picture, but I had to use the scanner instead of the camera.

I hope you like it
