Simple Christmas cards!

I was bored the other day, so I decided to start making Christmas cards. I have plenty of old stuff to use, but made it even easier for myself by buying a couple of new, small papers stacks - they are so handy.

So I started on Friday night by making cards in classy Christmas cards in tradional colors. But I wanted to see if I could get some ideas for new design and color combos, and I found a lot on the web to help me out.

I'm going to show the classic cards here next week - today I'll give you the other ones.BTW, for those of you who don't speak Norwegian: God Jul means Merry Christmas.


I found this fun color combo on the Dynamic Duos challenge blog:




And here is my take on it. I admit it, my card has a more turqouis color, but what the heck - I'm still happy with it and the challenge made me think out of the box.


Patterned paper: Simple story. Tag: ChicTags. Snow flake brad & tulle: unknown.
Alpha: Jillibean Soup



CAS-ual Friday has this fun challenge this week:



I had some old glitter hearts, and I have lots of eyelets I hoarded years ago, so I pulled out my paper crimper, white cardstock and came up with this card.

Cardstock: Bazill. The rest: unknown


Artful Delight's October card sketch looks like this:




What a fabolous sketch! perfect for Christmas cards and all other cards!
Patterend papers: Simple Stories. The rest: unknown

Have you started on your Christmas cards yet?

-------------------------------------


Please come back later this week, as I have a lot of places to show where you can get inspiration for both cards, layouts and altered items:
  • Oct. 15th: A new card sketch is up at Cardabilities
  • Oct. 17th: Once Upon A Sketch releases DT Team B's creations on the 15th - my example 
  • Oct. 19th: I have a guest blog post revealed somewhere in cyber space! It involves stamping, getting messy, example on how to use stamps, cards, layouts and a cnvas. Come back to see where and what.
  • Oct 21th: Classy Christmas cards.
And if I have time to scrap this week, I'll put up a layout in between the stated posts.
See you around!
