Twelve Days of Christmas: Day Eleven, Be Merry

Cards, Challenges, Holiday Card

Welcome to day eleven of my Twelve Days of Christmas feature. For today’s card, I wanted to play along with the Colour Me…! Colour Challenge. This week, the CMCC#51 is to create a project using kraft, green, and red.

Since it’s so close to Christmas, I created a very simple card using inlaid cuts (a free file) from my Silhouette Portrait.

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

…a Be Merry card.



Thank you so much for stopping by! In case you missed it, you can see the tenth day of Christmas here.



CMCC#44 – Snow Globe

Cards, Challenges, Holiday Card

My Simon Says Stamp November card kit arrived this week and I couldn’t wait to break into the supplies. Luckily for me, the supplies in the kit were the perfect colours to play along with the Colour Me…! team Tara challenge.

The CMCC#44 had two sets of colours to play along with. I chose to play along with Team Tara. Here is my card:


I went through the adorable Lawn Fawn Snow Day patterned papers  from the kit and selected the winter bunny scene to use as inspiration for my card. Next, I used my Silhouette Portrait to cut the snow globe using a free cut file from Birds Cards from 110lb smooth white cardstock.

Using the Be Joyful stamp set from the kit, I stamped the season’s greetings sentiment in Versamark ink and then heat embossed with Ranger Super Fine black embossing powder. Next, I used a makeup sponge with SSS Khaki ink to colour around the snow globe frame and base.

I wanted to add a little extra dimension to the patterned paper so I adhered two snow drift layers cut from vellum before sprinkling on some snowy sparkles and assembling the front with a plastic shaker window. I used foam tape to adhere the snow globe base and finished it off with a pink bow embellishment from the kit and some pink and brown ribbon.


I adhered two strips of patterned paper to my 110lb white cardbase to pull the whole thing together and anchor the heavy looking snow globe.

That’s it for today. I had so much fun creating this card. Thank you so much for dropping by! Have a great week!
