A few more Christmas cards

I thought I was nearly finished with my Christmas card making but completely forgot that my MIL wanted 12 so ended up being 17 short rather than the 5 I had thought. Therefore, I had a marathon making session today and made multiples of the same cards, something I never do unless I'm doing card swaps! I still didn't get all 17 done but some of them I can do during the week or next week end for when I go visiting people just before Christmas.

This first card is for Mojo Monday's Challenge #271 for the sketch and Play Date CafĂ©'s Challenge #161 to use these fab colours. I used Gumball Green, Primrose Petals and Real Red for mine.


And here's my card.

My next card is for The Sweet Stop's Sketch Challenge #189 (I was picked as one of the winners for last week's sketch - woot!) and after a long hunt for my Friendship Jar set I came up with this. I was actually looking for the wrong set the whole time and must have glanced over the one with the jar in about a million times!

And my final card is inspired by one that I saw on Pinterest. I loved the idea of die cutting the trees out of patterned paper, which the original card had but my DSP was just too busy and I had already cut the trees out of the middle when I decided the papers didn't look right, so instead of DSP I just used Very Vanilla and love how this one came out too.

And that's all from me today folks! Thanks for stopping by!
