Beccy's Place Month Of Holiday Cards - Day 18

This is the quickest card that I have created for the Month of Holiday Cards at Beccy's Place.  I saw the sketch and knew what I wanted to create!


I have followed the tutorial at Beccy's Place for A-Frame Cards  I used a paper from Rosie's Studio as will as a scrapbook paper (mistletoe).  The image and sentiment are both from Beccy's Place and coloured with copic markers.  Normally I wouldn't colour mistletoe berries red but I decided to match them to the scrapbook paper.  I also used pearlescent cardstock for matting and a strip of mesh ribbon

Beccy's Place Month Of Holiday Cards Day 10

Here is where I ran into problems with creating a card using colours, cardfolds and images starting with the letter I.  So for this card, I had to "rename" Beccy's fold to "Icy Easel Card"  so I could have it starting with I!!!  I'm going to run into problems with some of the other letters of the alphabet too as there are other gaps!



I have followed a tutorial at Beccy's Place for an Easel Card.

My true I words are:
Ice Skates (image from Beccy's Place)
image!
Indigo (colour)
Ivory (colour)

I also used a paper from a Christmas paper pad, some glitter foam snowflake embellishments and a sentiment from Beccy's Place.

Beccy's Place Month Of Holiday Cards Day 7

Beccy has thrown a curve ball for Day 7 - we have veered away from the alphabet for the challenge at Month of Holiday Cards at Beccy's Place.  However, it gave me a chance to use a different fold and image.

My BINGO line is Die-cuts, Fancy Fold and Let It Snow.

I used a Tim Holtz die to cut the snowflakes from glitter cardstock.  The papers are from a christmas paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The image and sentiment are both from Beccy's Place and are coloured with copic markers, Wink Of Stella and Kindy Glitz.
