Week 2 Christmas in July challenge at Ideal Papercrafts

This week we are asked to make a pop-up style card for a child.
I used my KNK Maxx machine and a great set of SVG files from Sugar Gem Crafts to  make my card and I did have fun making this card. I usually am hesitant to make construction type cards but with this great file from Sugar Gem and my great cutting machine it was not as difficult as I thought it would be.

Christmas in July Card challenge at Ideal Papercrafts

This month I am taking part in a challenge over at Ideal Papercrafts.
Here is the first card for week 1.
We were asked to pick the flag colours from a country competing in the olympics to inspire us for our card and to also if possible add something which helps show which country.
I chose Ireland - orange, green and white. I added the irish gaelic word for Chritmas which is "Nollag" and also added three shamrocks.

Hybrid Cards

Lately I have started to enjoy making what is called "Hybrid" Greetings Cards. It is combining digital art with papercrafts.  I think I am enjoying it because it is so much quicker than stamping and colouring in an image. Plus the image can be made to any size you want it to be.
So today I decided to take part in a challenge from  The Hybrid Chick blog to use ribbons on a card.

For my card I used digital products from a kit called Sweet Songs by Viva Artistry.
