Now that Christmas is over I can post the cards I made. These gatefold cards are my go to card when I need to make a lot of cards and have no time to do so. I hope you all had a great holiday and that next year is a great one for you. Here is my Christmas card for this year
The Crop Chocolate design team recently decided to do a tag swap. I have to be honest I am not great with tags, and I really struggle with them. For this one I misted the background, and then heat embossed with a Hero Arts stamp for the background. Next I distressed the edges with my TH distresser and added some Spellbinders die cuts. My partner has posted that she got hers to I can finally post a picture. The letters were cut with my Cameo and then I sprayed some glue and added glitter to the letters.
I made this birthday card for my Mom's birthday, and I decided to combine it with a challenge at Crop Chocolate as well. The challenge was to use ribbon and something else (bling, glitter, buckles, etc). So I decided to use glitter. I made the flower by stamping Aztec Flowers 2 using embossing ink, and then using heat and stick powder. I then heated the powder till it melted and viola I have a great glue for glitter, then I sprinkled black glitter on the glue and cut the flowers out with my spellbinders. The heat and stick powder is great for glitter it doesn't flake off at all. I had tried the glue pads for stamps but the glue never seemed to hold and then someone suggested heat and stick powder and what a difference.
The current challenge at Crop Chocolate is to create something using three different hearts. I am currently working on a mini album as a Christmas gift, and when I saw this I figured I could make something for it. This is a journalling tag to go in my album and after Christmas I will upload a video and pictures of the finished project.
I made this card for the Crop Chocolate challenge #40, the theme was thankful and you had to use twine somewhere on the project. I have a new niece on the way and this was the card I made for the baby shower. I can't wait to meet her !
