Almost a week up of my Christmas Craft Countdown and I am really amazed that I have been able to stick to my goal. Once again to recap, I've set myself a challenge for Christmas. My Countdown Goal is simple - Every day from November 1st to November 30th, I'm going to make 3 projects. They could be cards, tags, gift boxes, ornaments, whatever I want to complete but I have to complete at least 3 projects every day. To see my previous Countdown projects, click here
My inspiration for today's cards was Casology's Key Word this week which is Brown, so all my projects today are shades of brown. My first card is this abstract nativity scene all cut on my Cameo. The base card is brown, the next layer is white and the nativity scene is cut in brown again. For the star and baby Jesus, I cut some beige card stock.
My next card is a brown reindeer silhouette. Again 3 layers - base brown, next white and the top layer is brown again in which the reindeer silhouette has been cut. It actually looks better than this. I think I'll take some photos tomorrow morning when the sun is up and my card looks its best.
Finally I used the die cut from the reindeer card to make a reindeer tag. Isn't it really clean and simple and sleek? Love love love the simplicity of it all and the warm rich colour tones. Entering this tag into The Paper Players 170 - Wildlife, ABC Christmas Challenge - V for Vixen and Tuesday Throwdown 172 - Tag It.
Today was a really crazy day. The kids were late to school, my son refused to go in the carpool and insisted I take him to school, my father in law and I had an afternoon Scrabble date and it was only 5pm before I could start to craft. I am obsessed with photographing my work in natural light and since the sun sets at 6pm this time of year, I just had one hour to get them ready. I actually didn't quite make it which is why the photos are quite grainy, but I managed to complete 3 projects today as per my goal! Woo Hoo!! The only issue is that I am running out of ideas. Gotta spend some time Pinteresting I think!
