Birthday card

Hello and happy Friday!! Today I have a day off from work – yay!!! What better way to end a week :). I have so been looking forward to this weekend and next week as I was hoping to be able to see some relatives and celebrate my special big day next week, but then Covid happened and there went all the nice plans down the drain.

So, oh well, instead of preparing a birthday party, I have been crafting cards. I mean, you only turn 50 once, right? And I was not going to hide somewhere, I was going to celebrate. My dad passed away suddenly with only 52, so the number 50 has a deeper meaning to me. Imagine you only had two years left from there? So I´ve decided to celebrate every single birthday from now own. You never know which one is going to be the last.

And now there´s Covid.. so much for the celebration. Oh well, I guess this year is just not going to get better, no matter what. So I have been crafting instead. I do love yellow, so I´ve been happily incorporating it to my work as much a possible! And this card has some fresh yellow-white stripes! I so love the background. And the centerpiece of this card is a cute owl gifted to my by my lovely friend, Lizzy! Thank you! It found a perfect spot on this card :).

I´m wishing you all an amazing weekend!! Hope everything is ok at your end! xxx, Sanna

Christmas card

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Today I´m stopping by to share a few Christmas cards with you. Here is one of them:

This is a card created using the Village Edge die cut die by Elizabeth Craft Designs, combined with the Fitted Rounded Rectangle die cut die. I wanted to try a shaker card of this type, creating a big shaker „window“ and then adding a village scenery on top. This was a fun thing to do, but for my next card I´ll create a little bigger outline for easier arrangement.

My second card is also created using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Owl die cut die as well as the Fitted Rounded Rectangle dies. The dotted paper on the background is also from the same company as is the sentiment die cut die. For coloring the owl, I used Distress Oxides. The sentiment is die cut from a silver mirror cardstock.

And for my last set of Christmas cards I´ve used premade dry embossed papers which I have inked with Distress Inks and for the sentiment I´ve used a die cut die by Elizabeth Craft Designs and the tree die cut die is by STAMPlorations. The glitter paper and the embellishments are by Tonic Studios – their glitter cardstock and Nuvo Drops as well as Confetti.

This year I am hopefully going to make my Xmas card deadline and get them also mailed in time :). Looking good so far!

Be sure to check back to my blog on Sunday, when I will be sharing a few more Christmas card projects with you! See you then!

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
