CTMH makes Christmas cards easy.

Welcome back.

A very short  post today.   Christmas is not that far away so I have been busy making some Christmas cards.  I love the two Christmas reflections pack from Close to My Heart – Snowhaven and Yuletide Carol.  Both have such different themes but they both make stunning Christmas cards.

I love utilizing  the patterns on the papers and the gorgeous wee socks hanging on the shelf is so beautiful and the red paper from the Snowhaven pack coordinates well.

I taught a class yesterday starting with the basics of card making just using the basic equipment i.e. no Cuttlebugs and Cricut machines and this is a good example of a card anyone can make with the basic tools and lovely patterned papers.

CTMH Snowhaven Christmas cardFinally this is one of my favourite cards.  I love the combination of the Ruby, Black and Glacier colours.  I have used the Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge to cut the sentiment tag and used the Curlicue Frames stamp set that came with the cartridge to stamp it in Black ink.  I love the sentiments from the Just to say… stamp set that also came with the cartridge.  I know that I am going to get a lot of use from these two stamp sets.  This pattern is from the Make It From Your Heart  Volume 2 book and is such an easy pattern to use.

Materials used:

Cardstock – Black, Ruby, White Daisy, Colonial White

Paper – Snowhaven, Yuletide Carol

Inks – Ruby, Black

Stamp sets – Artfully Sent Just to say…, Curlicue Frames,  Scandanavian Wishes (NLA)

Cricut Cartridge – Artfully Sent

These cards are for sale at Gift Hutt along with my other cards I have featured in my recent posts.

Have a good week and happy crafting.
