Christmas is just around the corner, a very exciting time for those who sew and craft. It is my favorite creative time, I love to share and spread joy through my many projects.
Today I am sharing a few cards that I planned on making since last year. I absolutly love the advent cards that some of the other girls were creating, therefore I decided they were a must on my Christmas project to-do-list for this year. Already having last years release of the Kraftin Kimmie Christmas stamps I was ready to go.
The first thing I needed to do was figure out the size of card that would work best with my images. I took several attempts at making the template for this card before I got the perfect dimensions. Next, I coloured up my Kraftin Kimmie images, and used them to create these super cute and fun to make Christmas cards.
Putting the card together took a little figuring, in the case of a directional image simply fold the card the reverse direction so that the image faces towards the calendar. As I do not have a fancy binding machine, I found using a coil from a notebook, its cardboard cover along with a small hole punch perfect for making the holes to attach the numbers and the coil.
So with out further delay here are my cards and a tutorial on how to make your own.
Side Step Card
1) Cut 10 1/2" x 6" (26.7 x 15.25 cm) piece of card stock.
4) On the 2" (5cm) side, score three lines, one at 1 1/4" (3.2 cm) from the bottom, the next at 2 1/2" (6.35 cm )and lastly at the 6 1/2" (16.5 cm) measurement. Score just to the slit.

Today I am sharing another super fun challenge. Make It Colourful has once again pushed our boundaries with this months skin challenge. Once again there are two categories to choose from: an easier challenge, using a skin colour that you don't normally use, and a harder challenge, giving muscle definition to your image. Deciding to step out of the box I went with green, not an everyday colour choice for skin.
Make It Crafty’s "Rusty Can House" background ties in perfectly with the wonderful alien image that I found on the internet. This creature is not only perfect for slick green skin, but also has nice muscle definition. I found both of these images plus this challenge a joy to colour.
Have an interesting day,
