The technique I used to make this envelope is a CASE of Kristina’s Holiday Card Series 2016 Day 25. Her cards are my absolutely favourite in the the series. Love the technique. So I did exactly the same. I watercoloured my watercolour paper using Gansai Tambi watercolor blue hues. After the paper was dry. I die cut the panel using the envelope die. And then ran the die cut using a Next Level Wave embossing folder. Love the texture on the panel. It is difficult to show the texture on the envelope. But trust me it is there Lol! Then I assembled the envelope. This envelope fits an gift card perfectly.
To decorate it I used Simon Says Stamp’s Snowflakes for the Season die to die cut the leftovers of the watercoloured panel as well as a silver cardstock. I used the largest two of the die in the set. Then layered the glued them with the silver die cut in the middle. I added a clear droplet at the centre. I adhered this on the envelope with a vellum square die cut cut using the die from Lucy Envelope Die. I also die cut a rectangle panel using another of die from the envelope die set and the left over watercoloured panel. I stamped the sentiment from Arctic Christmas stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I adhered this panel on the envelope using foam adhesives.
The gorgeous Tracey McNeely organises 25 Days of christmas Tags every year.
Here is my tag for 25 Days of Christmas Tags!
On a piece of scrap paper, I applied a generous amount of Nuvo Sapphire Blue glimmer paste. I let the paste dry and die cut the paper using Christmas Token die. I had to run this die like ten times on my die cutting machine to get a good cut. I adhered this on the tag base. I used Nuvo white crystal drops to fill in the small gaps of the snowflakes. And Doodlebug Sprinkles enamel dots and wooden enamel dots on the rest of the snowflakes. I then tied a lace on the tag with a bow using silver twine from May Arts. Simple, quick and easy tag which can also be used as an ornament.

All the supplies used to make this card is listed below.
I used some of my old pattern papers from various brands to combine colours and patterns. I die cut them using various stitched rectangle dies, sponged inks on the edges and layered them with foam adhesives. The gold frame is die cut using Simon Says Stamp Woodland Rectangular Frame die. This is my favourite die to use for Christmas card. I die cut the bells and bow from Spellbinders Lattice Ornaments die set using gold mirror cardstock and layered glued with a pink twine bow behind it. The sentiment is from Retro Christmas stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I added a touch of pearl on the bow.
Here are my two traditional Christmas cards using the other ornament from the Spellbinders Lattice Ornament die set.
For these two cards, the process of creating and layout is the same as the previous cards. Only difference is use of traditional Christmas pattern papers and different ornament. I did not sponge the edges of the panels. I added gold thread and red glitter frame on one of the cards.
I love all the four cards. No favourites for me 🙂 And I also love this style of cards especially layering and using some of my old pattern papers in the stash. I will be making more of this style of cards this year I think. Hope you like them and are inspired.

I started with die cutting a white cardstock using the largest of the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die. I then sponged Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon distress ink from the bottom of the panel to the top in an ombre leaving the top of the panel white.

Welcome to the last Runway Inspired Challenge for this year. Hope you have enjoyed all the challenges this year. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the challenges. Some of them made me think outside the box and other made me do something creative in spite of being straightforward. That’s the beauty of this challenge. Agreed? Here is challenge #98 Gucci!
This card is made using Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit. The kit has this gorgeous pattern paper I have used on the card front. I then added a strip of green striped panel. I stamped a white strip of cardstock with MFT striped background stamp using Fern Simon Says Stamp ink. Then layered with a black strip of glitter paper. The star is die cut using gold foiled paper using Simon Says Stamp Sketch Star. The centre is puffy stickers from Pinkfresh Studio found in the card kit. The card is embellisheh using the self adhesive sequins also from the car kit. I love how focal poin is small and clustered which allows the sentiment pattern paper to shine. Here is a closeup
