Swirly Christmas

Happy Friday!!  Today's Bellariffic Fridays theme was to make a Christmas/Holiday card - I'm happy to say I made 17 of them; I know odd number but I didn't like the colour on the first on so it was eliminated.....


I picked Swirly hills with trees up last weekend at Stamping Bella; every time I see someone use it I wonder why don't I have this image?!  It's perfect for Holiday cards instead of specific Christmas cards (I need some of each to send out)  The image is stamped with mementos ink onto bella's bestest paper and coloured with copics and primsacolour pencils (see that Linda & Paula?!)  I added lots of glamour dust glitter for the snow effect on my card. I embossed the cs with cuttlebugs snowflakes and the ds paper is from 3 bugs in a rug; I love the non traditional holiday papers!

Don't forget to stop by the other Babes blogs to see their holiday creations & Bloggabella to see the sistah's cards!

Next weeks Bellariffic Fridays theme is a sketch (don't we all love sketches?!) designed by our own Cathabella!!  Email your creations to Em by Thursday to be included and you could win some bella bucks!

So after making my 17 cards yesterday I checked to see how many I had done (I totally failed at 1 a week this year) 45 complete - and I think I only need 100......

Have a great day - I think I will be working on more Christmas cards!!

Love this card Dana, I really like the snowflake emboss of the red background paper. Is it cuddlebug embossing folder?

What a great card to mass produce!!! I have been in the mass production stage also but I agree with Danni...it gets boring after awhile. HUGS!!!

A 100 Danabella?? OMG, I'll be lucky if I get 25 done. I love this little card... and I too don't know why I don't have this image. Must add to my cart while I'm thinking about it. And why is it I never think to get the embossing folders out? Duh!! Thanks for such great inspiration!

Wendy said...

OMG after I saw Linda's card last week I almost picked this up as well. I saw it in your stash though and knew we'd see it from you soon. You did a great job adding pencils! Nice simple card. At least you're 17 closer than you were the day before! Keep going.

Leslie said...
