Beautiful wreath! We have also this arrangement but from branches of Christmas tree with cones and shiny ornaments. We can also put it on the Christmas table, together with a Christmas candle. Beautiful moments, indeed, when the whole family is together and feel the joy of this Celebration.
Cheers,
Suzana

Day 29 - Die Cut Delirium

I dragged out all my Christmas themed dies and some white card stock and spent an hour cutting and embossing lots of wonderful Christmassy shapes.  Most of them didn't make it on to my card, but I'm certainly in the spirit of the season and have lots of left over cuts for even more cards!
 

YOUR TURN:  Go nuts with die cuts!

Day 28 - Construct A Card

These days card makers have access to a wonderful range of pre-coloured images and card making kits.  Lots of patterned paper is made with images that are easy to cut out with scissors and reconstruct on a card.  There are also several companies who make and sell paper tole kits and pre-cut images for cards and scrapbooks.  I created this card using some pre-printed die cuts from Kaisercraft.  It was fun to mix and match the images to come up with this little Christmas scene. 
 
 
YOUR TURN: Create a card using pre-coloured cut outs, printables or purchased kits.

I think I'm going to enjoy this one! I have one artist whose cards I always love seeing as I love the style of them. Love the scene you have created with your card Beccy.

Day 27 - Create Something Regional

Here in Australia, Christmas is celebrated in summertime.  There are no snowmen, warm scarves, sleigh rides or roaring fires, instead we have the beach, seafood platters, cricket in the backyard, and often, an afternoon thunderstorm.  All over the world, Christmas is celebrated with different foods, activities and traditions and often the cards we make reflect the things that are special to us.
 
For today's card I used a pre-coloured digital stamp called "Aussie Wreath".  It contains gum leaves, blooming gumnuts and Australian flannel flowers finished with a big red bow.
 
 
YOUR TURN: Create a card that reflects the region where you live
or the traditions that are important to your family.

Comment Winner - Day 25

Congratulations SweetDee!

A white card always has this simplistic beauty but when you had gold or silver metallic paper you just made that even more elegant. And, you can never have to much paper!

Day 26 - What's Your Style?

Lots of card artists develop a creative "style" that can become quite recognisable.  They might be known for their colour combinations, their skill with colouring or their creative use of textiles.
Today I've created a card in the style of Kittie Caracciolo, who makes the most amazing cards using a wide variety of die cuts and inks.  After making this card I certainly have a new appreciation for all the hard work that Kittie does to create her masterpieces!
 
 
YOUR TURN: Create a card based on the style of a card artist you admire.
(You are not recreating a particular card they have done,
you are using their general style as inspiration.)

Day 25 - Baubles

Baubles are a popular motif for Christmas cards and there are countless ways of adding them to your creations.  I have seen bauble stamps, punches, dies and stickers as well as cards featuring baubles made from fabric, buttons, patterned paper, burlap, twine, rhinestones and glitter.  There are bauble stencils, embossing folders and masks as well as patterns for painting and drawing baubles.  Creative card artists make baubles from other stamps as well.  All it takes is a string, a little bow and a loop to turn your bird, car or horse stamp into a fabulous Christmas decoration.
 
Stamps by: Sparkle N Sprinkle and Stamp-It Australia
 
YOUR TURN: Create a card featuring Christmas baubles.
