1. to use a Christmas Theme
2. Make it all in white
3. Include a bird, deer, bear etc.
4. make it sparkle with Stickles or glitter.
I used plain white card stock and using Tim Holtz oval diffuser I embossed with the "Holiday Words" and in the centre I embossed a Christmas Tree with Crafts-Too embossing folder, (it's a bit hard to see as I always have trouble taking photos of all white cards.) I used Tim Holtz Sizzex "Bird No. 5" cutting die to make the little dove and used Kindy Glitz in Silver for the birds eye and the wing. I used two Memory Box cutting dies to make the Wrought Iron fence and the Gate and also used silver Kindy Glitz on the fence.

I made this card for the challenge No 23 on Christmas Stampin' all Year Long called "Anything Goes". I needed a card for one of my Husband's elderly, single, male friends, and thought this might be the one. Men don't seem to like fussy cards. It is a 5" x 5" card made with black cardstock and embossed with Tim Holtz Sizzex embossing folder "Diamond Plate". I used silver acrylic paint "Sullivan's" because I don't have a TH paint dabber and had to "make do" I used the largest Spellbinders "Sprocket" for the circle and painted the little embossed pieces with the silver paint. I used a Mariannes Creatable to cut the little vintage car and used a silver gel peen to accentuate the shapes on the car. I used a Quickutz die "Jolly" set for the holly and the small pine trees and used red stick on pearls, kaisercraft basics.

I made this card for our Grandson's Confirmation Day, and I used white card stock with lace around the edges of the back section and I used water colour paper for the front, and I hand drew the letters of his name with Gold Jo Sonja paint as I had run out of gold guache, I used the Sizzex bird to represent the Holy Ghost and painted it also with the Jo Sonja paint, the cogs were Tim Holtz cutting die and also painted, I found some small gold washers in my stash and used them with the cogs, I used a silver cross and painted it with alcohol inks in a gold colour, the small flowers were punched out and shaped with a pencil and the white leafy swirls are a MFT die-namic die "Leafy flourish", I painted the curly edges of the top with the gold paint too. The fowers have a small chrystal bead in the centre. I like this one and hope he does too!.
