Merry Everything

Recently I was lucky enough to win a challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and the kind people over there invited me to do a Guest Designer Spot for them, so here I am!

There's nothing quite like using a good simple sketch and this is what I came up with!
The stamps and matching dies are from MFT, (apart from the tree and I can't remember the make of that one... I seem to have so many!). I dry embossed it with a Sizzix EF  to add a little dimension.
There's something very satisfying about making Christmas Cards... during the year I make so many cards, a large proportion of which sit in my card box for a very long time. I haven't sold any to my choir for ages as we haven't been meeting because of Covid 19 restrictions. I have still been doing commissions for people, but the general cards I have made for challenges etc probably won't find homes for ages. When it comes to Christmas cards however, I know that they will all find a home as I send out so many each year!
Anything Christmas



  1. Beautiful card and fantastic use of the sketch ! Thanks for playing at 52cct

  2. oh Chrissie, quel amour de carte, c'est trop mignon, merci d'être notre guest designer cette semaine, biz

  3. You make the most wonderful Christmas cards, Chrissie! The white paper you use, the textures, the white on white, with pops of color, they all look like how you feel when you see the hush of winter's first snowfall. That was clumsily said, but I hope you got my drift. (*you see what I did there with drift, hahaha!) p.s. Thanks for sending on certain cartoons to keep my chins up during this dreadful time. It helps! I hope you are all keeping well. Hugs, Darnell

  4. I love your use of white on white and embossing for texture. Keeps it simple and stylish, and allows the colour to pop! Thanks for guest designing for us at 52CCT this week.
