Hi, friends! I'm sure lots of you know about Debby's challenge to choose your top 5 favorite Christmas cards from 2014. I've been hemming and hawing over which ones I'd choose. My dear hubby helped me in the end. It was tragic. ;) Anyway, I have them here for you from newest/most recently posted to oldest/least recently posted. Let's go!
First up: Warmth & Love
This card is one of my favorites mainly because of how simple it was to make yet how elegant it looks. This is one that, should I go that route, I could make 50 of very quickly and easily. But I don't do that, so this will remain one of a kind. ;)
Next up: Blackboard Bird House
This card turned out much better than I anticipated that it would. I was so excited with the final product! The blackboard effect turned out beautifully and I love how the black makes the other traditional Christmas colors POP!
Third up: Christmas Swag
This card was fun to make. I used a wreath building set from Inspired By Stamping to create the swag using generational stamping. I was worried my idea wouldn't translate to the card, but it did! :)
Fourth up: Merry & Bright
This card was fun to make. It was for a color challenge and I used non-Christmas stamps to create the blooms. I love the way the layered colors and metallics layered together. I think it definitely looks like a Christmas card even though the flowers are non-Christmas!
Last up: Winter Wonderland
This card is one that totally took a lot of brain power to figure out. Not that the design is so hard, but the challenge was definitely...challenging. ;) We were to use metallic card and I do not own any. (I know, buy some already...) I kept thinking of ways to get around this, when some fun metallic tissue paper caught my eye. HOORAY! It worked beautifully!
That's all for me right now! I hope you join the fun with this link up and that if you do your favorite Christmas cards or even a yearly highlight that you link it up HERE with me, too! HUGS and happy new year stamping! :)
