Christmas Card Entries for January's Hjertebodens

Good afternoon to all my awesome blogging friends! Just finished my three entries for the January Hjertebodens Yule Blogg. Actually, I finished them yesterday, then I realized that I totally forgot that at least one of them must be "anything but square".....soooo, back to work!!!!!
My "anything but square" card features Edwin on Christmas Eve, colored with copics.
Papers are by K&Company, a gift from my dear sweet friend....thanks, Sweetie!
I used the Magnolia fence die and fir, as well as a tree by Marianne Creatables.
Another card I made features Winter Tilda and the Christmas doorway. Papers are BG's Jovial Collection. Flower and leaves are from Prima and the lovely brad was a gift from my awesome friend, Jacque. The fence die, of course, is from Magnolia.
My vintage card features a lovely photo from Pion Design. Papers are from H. Holtz's
Seasonal Papers collection. I used lots of gold stickles around the edges of the card and the ribbon and lace is from my stash. The lovely gold brads were a gift from my sweet friend, Danielle.

Thank you so very much for taking the time to visit my blog and leaving a comment.
Hope you are all having a fabulous day. Hugs, Christina


  1. Christina!!! I love all of them!!! Each one has your special touch and your coloring is amazing!! Love all the details!!

  2. Well I must say you have created 3 gorgeous cards. When oh when do you get the time. I love looking or should I say peeking at the inside of the house. I need to use this stamp. I also love the use of the picket fence although I have not done so yet. You have made some lovely cards - do I see your signature lace? I really love the shape of your second card. Those must be strawberries from Florida!!
    Always watching!!

  9. What beautiful cards you have made. I love the base of the Edwin card. What die is that? I would love to buy it but don't know what to look for or where to buy it. Is it a Spellbinder die? Thank you for giving me inspiration.

  10. What beautiful cards you made. Very nice coloring. I love the base of the Edwin card. What die did you use? Is it a Spellbinders? I would like to buy a base like that but don't know what company makes it. Also what is the finished size of your cards? It is hard to determine on the blog. Thanks for giving me inspiration.
