Three Christmas Cards for February Hjerteboden's Juleblogg

Good morning everyone....wishing you all a wonderful weekend! It's finally starting to warm up a bit. My family came back from warm and sunny Curacoa yesterday with a tan, and, judging by the photos, it was paradise on earth!
Being home on vacation, I had time to spend in my craft room and I finished the three Christmas cards for the Hjerteboden's Juleblogg.
My Tilda with violin was colored with distress inks and the papers I used were from Magnolia and some were designed by Kristine Moldenhauer Biseth. The gorgeous flowers are from Magnolia and the lovely corner adorner was a gift from my wonderful friend, Jacque.
The beautiful lace was also a gift from another sweet friend, Claudia. Thank you girls for thinking of me in such a special way.
The other two cards are "vintage" utilizing photos I received from another special friend. Thank you so very much.....I adore these wonderful photos!
The papers on the blue card are from Melissa Frances. The gorgeous white rose ribbon was also a gift from sweet Jacque.
For the final vintage card, I used papers from the Bo Bunny Christmas collection.
This one caught my daughter's eye right away....she loves the reindeer!
The raffia is from RRR and the beautiful gold mistletoe and red velvet flower were also a gift from Jacque. Thank you Sweetie!!!
I hope you like my cards. I am so very thankful for all your wonderful comments!
I love making cards and it's so nice when you get encouragement. Hugs!!!!


  1. Hello Christina, MAGNIFIQUE ! All 3 of them are beautiful. WOW, your ink coloring of Tilda is just amazing. I am truly impressed at your mastering this technique in such a small period of time. Ijust love this first card for its gorgeous pastel colors, the wonderful layering, the beautiful music sheet background, the lovely lace and all the other details. I love both of the other cards for the vintage look, the richness of their colors, and the beautiful embellishments you chose to enhance those precious antique pictures.The beautiful papers you choose for both cards create such harmony with the picture, Love the raindeers very much too.
