Karin’s You Autumn Know Holiday Card

It’s the last weekend for our Holiday Critters challenge! The challenge gallery will be open until Sunday December 5th at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see your creativity!

I love to use non-holiday sets to make Christmas cards! Karin used the adorable mice from You Autumn Know on her beautiful design! They are having so much fun with the snowflakes (from Magic Iris Snow Globe Add-On) in place of the fall leaves!

She also used Tropical Leaves Add-On to frame the Christmas tree from Snow Globe Scenes! The tropical leaves look frosty and perfectly snowy on the Let It Shine Snowflakes background! Such a clever way to use sets you may have on hand for Christmas!

Thank you so much for sharing your beautifully clever card inspiration, Karin!


Happy Crafting, friends!

Christy’s Magic Iris Snow Globe Card Featuring Penguin Party

Our Holiday Critters challenge will be open until Sunday December 5th at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see your creativity!

Hey friends, it’s Christy with another card for our Holiday Critters Challenge! For this card I wanted to feature the adorable penguins from Penguin Party, and I thought a snow globe just might be the perfect place for them to call home.

I started by stamping out my images, coloring them with Copic markers, and trimming them out with the matching dies.

Then I started on my background. I blended Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink onto the edges of a Blue Jay Cardstock panel, to give it some definition. Then I used the Snowflake Background Stencils and some white pigment ink, like Yeti, to add some snowflakes over top. I splattered that with some Gansai Tambi Starry Colors in the pearl shade, and then set that aside to dry. I also cut the Magic Iris Snow Globe Add-on out of Blue Jay cardstock and gave it the exact same treatment.

While that was drying, I got to work on my Magic Iris mechanism. I die cut that out of Blue Jay Cardstock as well, so everything would match nicely.

I die cut the background panel with the Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables and glued it to a Chili Pepper card base. Then I added a snowdrift with the Stitched Hillside Border. I attached the Snow Globe Add-on to the Magic Iris mechanism and adhered them to the card. Then I added another snowdrift, a Chili Pepper base to the snow globe, and accents with Metallic Silver Cardstock.

I glued the igloo inside the Magic Iris window, and my penguins to the rim of the Snow Globe. I finished with some Stardust Stickles on the light bulbs, and some white gel pen snow on the closed sausages.

If you’d like to see how this card came together, you can check out the video tutorial as part of my Holiday Card Series on my YouTube Channel, Christy Gets Crafty. If you haven’t yet entered our Holiday Critters Challenge, there is still some time! We can’t wait to see what projects you’ll come up with!

Thank you so much, Christy! Your Magic Iris card is amazing!


Have a wonderful weekend! Happy crafting!
