Fancy Friday Blog Hop | My Christmas Card

Hello there stampers! It's the last Friday of the month so that can mean only one thing, it's Fancy Friday time. Yay!

This challenge is to make some Christmas cards! To show what we are sending to our family and friends. It gives us a good excuse to make some Christmas cards and actually mail them out this year...on time! Fingers crossed I can get them out on time! I love making cards but am terrible at sending them. What date do you send Christmas cards out by? Are you an early sender or are you late to send each year?
If you've not see us before, the Fancy Friday team are past and present Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Members. still love creating and blogging and sharing what we love, so we have a blog hop once a month with everything fun and fancy. We've added some new members to the Fancy Friday team, Elizabeth, Teneale and Charlett, so make them feel welcome as you hop along through the blogs.

I must admit that part of these cards were for my swaps for the recent Stampin' Up! On Stage that was held at the start of November. Even though I started my swaps quite early, I ran out of time to finish them them all. I had all these left over coloured images that I spent so much time and effort in. I wasn't going to put them into the UFO (unfinished object) pile and decided put them together for some of my Christmas cards to post out.

When all the colouring was finished, I layered the images on oval embossed die cut shapes and then layered under the ovals was ribbon, trim, DSP and paper.

To give more of a snow feel, once the Pool Party oval was die cut and then embossed, I swiped Whisper White Craft Ink over the over to give that softer look.

How fun are those Santa's Workshop Enamel shapes? Perfect to add a little something extra to any creation.

To see all the blends used to colour the Sign's of Santa images check out the product used list. Even though I only coloured three of the images, they used lots of colours! 

Now on to the fabulous Susan Wong in New Zealand for her Christmas Cards.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
