Papercraft Business December Challenge #13: Merry Christmas

Hello papercrafters! I'm excited to share these new fun Christmas cards using a combination of Hero Arts sets both old and new. I just love combining sets to give them more fun and interest. The sets I have used are: Holiday Foliage Bold Prints, Color Layering Poinsettia bundle, Holly Days Stamp & Die bundle and Fluffy Stockings Stamp & Cuts.

It's also that time for another Papercraft Business Challenge where the inspirations for these cards came about. The theme for this month is Christmas - as it's just around the corner. Creating a card or project with a Christmas theme will get an extra entry in winning the prize which is the cute Peaceful Tilda Stamp.  Click here to enter the challenge. 

This fun card features the cute puppy and kitten from Fluffy Stockings stamp & cuts set. It's a great set with the coordinating dies included.

The background has been white heat embossed on SU Garden Green cardstock and have ink blended using Pine Needles Ranger distress inks on the top for an ombre effect. I have also trimmed it down to leave a white border.

The mounted foliage is from Holly Days stamp & die bundle and coloured with copic markers.

The sentiment is from Fluffy Stockings set and has been white heat embossed on a strip of SU Real Red cardstock and mounted with foam dimensionals to acts as a mantle.  

This next card features the new Color Layering Poinsettia bundle, combined with Holly Days Stamp & Die bundle and Holiday Foliage Bold Prints. Base card stock is SU Garden Green to set the tone of the foliage and Real Red cardstock used one again for the main sentiment to make it pop.

The Color Layering Poinsettia bundle is so much fun to use and comes complete with ink cubes pack!

The final card uses both the new Color Layering Poinsettia bundle and Holiday Foliage Bold Prints.

This is a special card as it took considerable time (labour of love) due to colouring in the background foliage. It's was well worth doing as it's such a stunning image and design. 

Layering the poinsettia and sentiment over the top completes the card and love how it turned out. 

I hope these cards have inspired you to create some fun Christmas cards and can't wait to see your awesome creations in this month's challenge!  Thanks so much for stopping by, till next time - Happy Crafting!
