I'm doing a "Card Kit Swap" with Nonni of Nonni's Handmade Cards and Marina of My Perfect Life. Each month one of us send the other two identical kits and we make 4 cards each using mainly the same supplies, but we can add some of our own stash too as we're keeping it really simple, fun and stress-free.
It was Nonni's turn
to make a kit and she chose the theme of "Christmas cards with texture". Her kit
contained 5 papers, 1 die cut snowflake, 3 die cut trees, 6 snowflake sequins, 1 stamped image, 1 stamped sentiment. A totally awesome, simpe kit with lots of texture and glitter!
Here's a photo of the kit:
I used the angel image and three of the sequins from Nonni's kit. I colored the angels using Promarkers, masked the image and sponged using one blue DI, adding more color to the top layer and being more gentle the further down I got. I used a freebie sentiment and ran the paper through a Tim Holtz embossing folder before I added the snowflake sequins and attched it to a silver glitter panel. If I come across this stamp it's sure thing it'll end up in my shopping basket!
This card is for: Sparkles Forum Christmas - #68 Angels or Fairies
Card#2: Merry Christmas in 5 languages
Here I used the heat embossed paper from Nonni. I ran it through another Tim Holtz embossing folder, added frantage and sequins. The deer were vut out from a DP that was part of the kit.
This card is for: Christmas Cards All Year Round - Monochromatic
Card#3: Glittery trees
I think this is my personal favorite made from this kit. The glittery tree stickers and 3 papers used are all from Nonni, I just adde some silver string and a die cut and Dymo made sentiment. I think this card has a retro look to it, it's not a typical "me" card, which is probably why I like the outcome myself. I think it also feels masculine with the textured papers, neutral colors and non cute theme.
This card is for: UnstampaBelles - Changing Seasons + Masculine
The snowflake, white textured paper and wooden patterned one came from the kit. From my own stash I added some sparkly silver paper, silver string and the sentiment. This card is really awesome to the touch.
