had a square piece of card in my bits box, so stamped along the centre with the
long garland, then stamped the other side, next I stamped the Christmas rose in each corner. The stamps were coloured with DI's. It was layered it onto red card, I stamped the
sentiment and a little holly, which was also layered with the red card. All then layered onto
the base square card.

Hi Everyone, my DT cards today is for -
An old image that came to light when I was searching for something in my files and thought this purrfect, for not only the challenge, but for the kiddies present money to be sent in.
here you can see, the layers 3D'd and the glaze on the eyes and nose. I'm not sure if you can make out the sparkle pen on the baubles.
I hope to see you at the challenge with your animals?

I don't have many Christmas Characters in my stamps, but I do have this Gnome and I love him. He has a home too. I stamped the Gnome, then masked him and added his home, I masked that too and added the trees. They were coloured with DI's with some grey squiggles for snow shadows.
After some thinking that it was too CAS, I decided to do a faraway scene, by stamping the trees and adding a few white highlights to the trees, and colouring the sky. I made a mess of the part, where I added the fading sun. So added a circle, after I had coloured it and stamped the top of the tree onto it. Only then did I die cut the images. I then layered it onto a die cut burgundy colour paper, to make it all as "warm" as the sentiment, then added it all to the base card. I then decided it needed a little sparkle with a snow writer.

Hi Everyone, hope you're all well, and getting used to darker nights.
My card today was for my Niece's Grandson, who is 4 this week, how time flies. I didn't know what to do for him, so decided on this friendly monster digital stamp, which I coloured in Photoshop, to match the colourful paper from a digital kit I chose. I took the oval, monster, greeting, a star shape from the same digi kit as the paper, onto which I added the greeting and age, into Silhouette to print and cut them, using 3 layers of each.
Next, I added a stitched border to the background paper and printed it out to size. All the layers were glued together, then attached to the background paper, which was attached to the base card. I then added 3d glaze to the number, sparkle pen to the parcel ribbon and the buttons on the bottom.
Time has been of the essence these last few weeks, so a card that could be put together quickly without much thought was good for me. I find digital kits so handy to do this. What is your quickest way to make a card?

Hi Everyone, I hope you're all well. In my New Home card, I mentioned my 90 year old BiL had fallen and was in hospital, thank you so much for your many good wishes for him. I'm afraid he died just a week after they moved in to their new bungalow. My SiL is stoic and coping, she has her incredible family around her. Who have been as wonderful to her, as she is and always has been to them.
