I firmly believe that it is never too early to start making Holiday cards and I was happy to get an opportunity to make several for this post.

CHRISTMAS RACCOON

For my first card I used two die sets – Christmas Bandit and Joy. The raccoon head from the Christmas Bandit Die Set fits perfectly in the space for letter O in the JOY word of the Joy Die Set.

This card took a million die-cuts to make, but it was totally worth it. Look at this cute raccoon!!!

First I die-cut the base JOY die out of a brown cardstock. Then, I die-cut small details out of green (pine branches and holly leaves), red (poinsettias and berries) and white for letters. I adhered all elements onto the brown die-cut.

Next, I die-cut parts of the raccoon head out of kraft, brown and white cardstock. Also I made die-cuts for its hat and scarf using red and white cardstock.

I assembled the raccoon head and popped it onto the JOY die-cut in place of the letter O.
I made a card base out of a light blue cardstock and white embossed a snowfall background onto it.

I started by embossing a white panel with the Cozy Knit Embossing Folder. After that I foam mounted it onto a white card base.

I die-cut the dog from the set out of white and black cardstock and assembled the bland and white dog by adhering its parts onto a piece of scrap cardstock smaller than the dog die. After that I popped the dog onto the card.

I die-cut the glasses out of red cardstock and adhered onto the dog. And I stamped a red Gingham background and die-cut a bow out of it. Which I then adhered onto the card.

First I made a card base out of a light blue cardstock. Then I die-cut the snowball’s inside part of of the same cardstock. After that I blended light blue ink onto this piece to make it a bit different from the card base.

I hope you liked the ideas of holiday cards I shared today. I had so much playing with die-sets from the Holiday 2019 collection. There is so much potential in them. Also I want to note that such cards is a good chance to use all those colored cardstock leftovers we save”for later”. I have a lot that I’ve been storing for years. And working with such die sets I use up quite a lot of them.

Thank you so much for visiting! Come back again to find more inspiration and ideas. I would be thrilled if you visited my blog at craftwalks.com or Instagram.

Have an amazing day!
