Merry Christmas from Swedish House Crafts

Hi everyone I'm here today with another Christmas Card. I actually made this the same time as I made the last one........yes its been made for a few weeks lol. If you look at my last card you will even see the Christmas Tree from the cut-out on this card as I made this one first lol.

I used a Gummiapan stamp to stamp Merry Christmas & then cut it out using Gummiapan Stitched Banners to cut it out.

I wanted the trees as main focus for my card but wanted more of a pop, so decided to cut a Christmas Tree right in the centre of my top layer of paper & then have a bold colour paper underneath.
I cut another tree out using Kraft card & to give it some interest I added buttons & paint for a snow effect. You can get the matching stamp for this tree which is fabulous & has many possibilities.

Have you also seen the little birdies up in the tree' need birdies in a tree & these dies are fabulous for using up those tiny scraps of paper.

To give it a wintery feel I added a Reindeer, Pine Cone, a glistening berry & a few other things to give interest & texture from my stash, including some rusty bells just hanging out under the seam binding.
Everything also got a dollop of white gesso to give a snowy wintery effect.........I love a winter scene.

Papers I've used are Maja Design Joyous Winterdays & I machine stitched all around them. The top layer was lifted using foam pads........if however you have no foam pads I keep all my cardboard form any crafty parcels & cut it into strips & keep them in a plastic box on top of one of my can use the card to give dimension instead of using foam pads.....recycling is good.
