Handmade Cards, Seven Hills Crafts DT

Cool Penguins at Christmas

Today I have two Christmas cards to share, using some lovely products from Mama Elephant and Lawn Fawn.

I die cut the Lawn Fawn Snowfall Backdrop Portrait die from both kraft card and dark blue card stock. Layered over a white card base, it gives a really lovely effect, but I wanted some extra Christmas sparkle for my cards.

I added some double sided adhesive to my card bases, then sprinkled on some Lawn Fawn Prisma Glitter. Using my finger, I burnished the glitter in to remove any excess. I then adhered the panels onto the cards.

Next, I die cut a couple of Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillsides from white card. On the hillside pieces, I heat embossed a greeting in gold from the Mama Elephant Scripty Xmas stamp set. I then adhered the hillsides to my card bases.

I stamped and coloured some images from Mama Elephant Cool Penguins, and also the Mama Elephant Little Reindeer and Santa Agendas. I cut out all the images and added them to my card with foam tape to finish.

Which is your favourite background – kraft or dark blue? I can’t decide!
