Christmas Winter Cards!


Well today I woke up to this:

So school is completely outta the question when you've got to drive across the moors to get to work!

A snow day means school is closed; I'm snuggled up inside with my hot chocolate and I can't think of a better time to share these Christmas Winter cards with y'all!

This was when I was on my colouring roll and de-stressing from the build up to Christmas! I also fancied trying something a little different to your average card, I dunno the offical term but it's a standy-uppy-step-card job!

Also added a touch of sparkle to Tilda's wings though my camera doesn't pick it up too well!

Card Recipe
Stamps: Magnolia Standing Fall Tilda
Ink: Memento Black
Card: SU DP Merry Moments
Accessories: PTI Ripe Avocado Grosgrain Ribbon/Dark Chocolate Twill Ribbon/Promarkers/Craftwork Cards Bauble Embellishment

This next card was made in a bid to crack open my stash of PTI's Scarlet Jewel. I'd promised myself I'd use it loads for Christmas projects but it actually only featured on this one card! Oh well, I guess I can use it throughout the year right?

My photography doesn't pick it up too well but I added some crushed velvet flock to her fluffy clothes - just to keep her warm ;D

Card Recipe
Stamps: Magnolia Chilly Tilda/PTI Holiday Tree
Ink: Memento Black/PTI Fresh Snow
Card: PTI Scarlet Jewel/Ripe Avocado/Craftwork Cards Christmas DP
Accessories: Snowflake Punches/PTI Vintage Button
/PTI Scarlet Jewel Bitty Dots Satin Ribbon/Stickles/Doodlebug Crushed Velvet Flock

So that's all my Christmas cards uploaded - finally!

I do have some news that makes me grin like the Cheshire Cat...I made the top trio over on 365 Cards with my card, For You! I can now add a card of the week fabulous blinkie and blink with pride! Oh and my Scraptastic Card also made the CAS Favourites over on SCS!

Well it's still snowing heavily, it forecasts even more! Dunno how long I can craft for though, I'm running low on double-sided tape LOL!

If you are out and about in the snow, take care!

Snowball ya later!

Your winter cards are soooo sweet! Congrats on your "Woot Woots"!

Maureen said...

I love the dp you've used...and WHAT!! You get snow days? LOL We never get snow days, no matter how much snow falls...it was snowing all day (lightly) yesterday and I was kind of glad I didn't have school (funeral) as the kids would be a little crazy with the snow and then all their snow clothes. I wish we had them :) Congrats on the card recognitions...love the new blinkie :)

AuroraDawn said...

Fabulous cards Aimes, I love them they are GORGEOUS! And many, many congratulations on your well deserved card recognitions :O)

I want a snow day, am praying for snow tonight!

Alex said...

Love these cute Magnolia Winter Cards Aimes :) Great colouring in and I love your papers.

Enjoy another craft day tomorrow if you're snowed in.

Bye for now,

These are gorgeous! I am blown away by your coloring, great job!

Alison said...

Absolutely gorgeous - and even better in the flesh, I'd say! Thank you so much for my xmas card, she is one of my fave Tildas - you must have had a psychic moment there.
What a great idea, adding flock to Tilda's clothing - I've never thought of that, and Lord knows, I've got flock! ( It might actually get used now you've given me the idea).
Alison, x
