Get Cracking On Christmas 2021

Hey there! I’m finally getting my mojo back in action and am joining in with my chums to Get Cracking On Christmas. This was something Jenn Shurkus started along with Chari Moss and Libby Hickson a couple of years ago and I thought it was a fab idea! Last year though I was a very poor participant and whist I’ve missed January and February, here I am in March with not one but TWO cards – I’ll be caught up in no time!!

I’ve pulled out some of my favourite Concord and 9th supplies today _ I love these sets so much. There is very little stamping going on other than my plaid background but lots of die-cutting.

For this first card I “dyed” some card stock using the Lime Rickey ink pad from Catherine Pooler then die cut the elements. I did the same with the Pucker Up ink pad so my Cheers would match the plaid!

The Cheers is cut twice from white then once from the Lime Rickey card and once from the Pucker Up card. This gives dimension and the slightly offset pink on top of the green gives a nice offset effect.

The next card is stamped in Melon Ice and the panel adhered to a landscape card base. I die cut a white oval using the Oval Burst die from Avery Elle and die cut the foliage from an olive green cardstock.

I used Rouge from Catherine Pooler to dye some card again and then die cut the Season’s and greetings from it.

Don’t know about you but I’m feeling all festive now!!!
