Krafty CAS Christmas Cards

Hello, Tallie here!

Last week saw one last effort to create some clean and simple (CAS), quick but stunning homemade Christmas cards. I love the classic kraft look with traditional festive colours so all of these cards follow the same simple design. I managed to create twenty cards following this same basic design. This one featuring the 'Oh What Fun' stamp set from Lawn Fawn is my favourite!

I started out by stamping some of the main images from the Lawn Fawn Oh What FunNeat & Tangled Bunny SlopesMama Elephant Santa Sleigh and Avery Elle Christmas Magic sets. I used some MFT Extreme Black ink and coloured the images in with my Copic markers, sticking to festive reds, greens and greys. I used my Scan N Cut to cut out the images, though there are coordinating dies available for each of the sets.

I used a snow stencil and some Lawn Fawn Yeti ink to add some snow to the background of some A6 kraft cardstock panels. I then adhered the panels to white card bases.

I die cut a bunch of banners using the Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banners set and stamped the 'Merry Christmas' sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Holiday Helpers set in some Lobster ink. I foam mounted the banners under the main elements.

This is a great way to get some use of those sets sitting in the Christmas stash. All that's left is to send them!

Thanks for reading, catch you next week.
