It's time to brush off those Christmas images and dies/punches to create some awesome art! Quirky Crafts Challenges has a challenge to use both a Christmas image and a die or punch. So using the Stocking image I was given to use by Stitchy Bear, I created 2 cards this week.
For my first card, I used my usual 5x6.5" white card base and added strips of washi tapes (Recollections), Santa ribbon from my stash and a strip of paper. I've been wanting to create more cards like this as they are quick and fun. I coloured the image with my SU! markers and Sakura metallic markers then fussy cut it. Where's the die? I used my Spellbinders Labels 8 and cut out a layer out of some shimmer vellum and edged it with a silver marker.
The second card is using another Mojo Monday template. I used a red foil embossed card base that I trimmed to 4x7". A strip of Christmas ribbon was attached down the centre and the two outer corners were punched with a holly corner punch. After a layer of green cardstock I adhered the stocking I had coloured with watercolour crayons and a water brush. I also added some metallic marker touches and fussy cut this one too. The greeting was stamped on scrap blue paper and punched out with a circle punch. The holly and leaves are paper die cuts from Prima (very old from my stash).
So what are you gonna create with punches/dies and your Christmas images? Have fun!
