Get Cracking On Christmas October 2018



Hey there, finally getting a chance to play along with this month’s Get Cracking On Christmas Challenge.  In case you’re new to the idea, it was dreamed up by my crafty pals Jenn Shurkus, Chari Moss and Cheiron Brandon as a way to save the last minute rush of making Christmas cards.  Throughout the year we’ve been sharing a Christmas card idea every third Thursday of the month and this time I’ve gathered some scrummy supplies and made not one but 2 cards!


Both start with a red card base onto which I stamped the Plaid Background Stamp from Concord and 9th in black ink.  I love Buffalo plaid so this is one of my favourite combos and I’ve used it before HERE.  On the first card I die cut some foliage pieces using the Tim Holtz Holiday Greens dies and the took the sentiment dies from the Season of Cheer collection from Concord and 9th.which I die cut from wood-effect paper from Seven Hills Crafts.  I bundled the die cuts together and added them to the card with a glue dot and finished it off with rustic twine bow and a touch of Distress Stickles here and there.


The second card uses some dies from Avery Elle and Newtons Nook.  I used Wonky Frames in both the Square and Circle designs and created my frames.  I backed the square frame with glitter paper and adhered it to the card base.  The bow was created using the new Wonky 3D Bow dies from Avery Elle and the stag head is from Splendid Stags by Newtons Nook.  I heat embossed the sentiment from Quirky Christmas from Avery Elle in white to finish.

Thanks for stopping by.
