Trio of quick and fun cards

Good morning Scrapping Cottage fans. This is Wendy bringing you the blog today. I hope you’ve had a wonderful week and are looking forward to a weekend of crafting.

I have 3 cards for you today as they are fairly simple to make and use quite a few of the new designs from the Christmas release 

All of the base cards measure 5” x 4” and are layered with the largest of the ‘Nested Stitched Scallop Rectanglesp’. For the Santa and penguin cards I have created snow, grass and used the largest ‘Stitched Rectangles’ to cut the backgrounds to size

I have fallen in love with this Santa from the ‘Ho Ho Ho Santa’ die. Isn’t his reindeer super cute. I used the ‘Slimline Hills’ to create the background. I added some small white dots with a white pen to give the effect of snow 

Now we come to the ‘Penguin Decorating the Tree’ die. I created a cloudy background using the ‘Slimline Clouds’ to make a stencil. For the base I used the Slimline Grass’. I added some pine cones from the ‘Christmas Farmhouse Floral’ to finish the card off 

Finally we come to the ‘Ice Skating Kids’ die. For the ice i coloured certain areas and then used a clear glitter pen to make it shiny. The hills have been created using the ‘Snowy Mountains’ from an older release.  

I really hope you like the cards. I think they are quick and easy to repeat so you can make lots of cards this Christmas. Have a wonderful weekend and make sure you have plenty of time to craft

Here are the dies I have used
