Christmas Cards for my Grandchildren

December 20, 2015

I started making a special Christmas card for each of my six grandchildren several years ago.  It has now become somewhat of a tradition and they look forward to seeing what I create each year.  This year I used some card sketches I had saved on my Pinterest Board to create 6 cards, 2 each of 3 designs.  I love the Christmas Critters stamp set and purchased it specifically so that I could make cards for my grandchildren.

0442I used three strips of the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper and attached them to Whisper White card 5″ x 5″ square before attaching to Cherry Cobbler card.  I stamped the “elf” image onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and used my retired Blendibilites to colour the image (Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Smoky Slate, Daffodil Delight and Skin Tones (nude)).  I punched Gold Glimmer Paper using the Owl Builder Punch and attached them over the bells on the stamped image.  0472I used a Circle Framelit Die to cut out the image and attached it to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting onto Whisper White card using Mellow Moss ink and punched both ends using the Triple Banner Punch before attaching to a slightly longer piece of Mellow Moss card which also has both ends punched to match the Whisper White banner.  The greeting is attached to the card front using a dimensional under each end.  Inside I added a strip of Mellow Moss to one long edge of a piece of the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper and attached it to Whisper White card.  The panel is attached to the inside of the card.

038For the next two cards I embossed Cherry Cobbler card using the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder and attached it to the centre of Whisper White card.  I cut three banners from the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper Stack and attached them to the centre of the Cherry Cobbler card. 040 I stamped the angel image onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut the image out using an Oval Framelit Die.  Once more the image is coloured using Blendibilities, except for the wings where I coloured using a 2-Way Glue Pen and added Dazzling Diamonds.  For the inside I stamped the greeting from the Sassy Salutations stamp set using Cherry Cobbler ink onto Whisper White card and added a piece of Designer Series Paper to one long edge of Cherry Cobbler card which is embossed using the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder.

041The last card has a piece of Merry Moments Designer Series Paper attached to Whisper White card with a narrow strip of Silver Glimmer Paper attached over the Designer Series Paper.  I stamped the greeting using Cherry Cobbler ink onto the lower right hand corner of the Whisper White card.  The panel is attached to scored and folded Cherry Cobbler card. 0432 Once more the image is stamped onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, coloured using Blendibilities and cut out using one of the Circle Framelits Dies.  The image is attached to the card front using dimensionals.   A narrow strip of Silver Glimmer paper is attached to one long edge of Merry Moments Designer Series Paper and then to Whisper White card.  The panel is attached to the inside of the card.

I love how each of these cards turned out and my grandchildren loved them as well.

Bye for now,
