Today I’m writing from Denmark. I’m here with with my fiancé and we will be celebrating Christmas tonight with my family, tomorrow we will be travelling home to UK – tell me about how difficult it is to get a flight in Christmas day! Boxing Day we celebrate with English family so the priority when we get home is getting the gammon boiled!

Christmas is always celebrated on Christmas Eve in Denmark. We will be picking up family and going to my sisters house late this afternoon. We will have pork roast with crackling at dinner followed by rice pudding. After a break we will be singing Danish Christmas carols while joining hands and dancing around the Christmas tree – Christmas tree is normally placed or pulled out in the centre of the room for this to work best! And then we have presents along with biscuits, cake and sweets – cause we need more food right?! How is your Christmas going to be?

For this card I used the inlay technique and used the lovely heart thinlits die to cut background and the heart stamped background. Then I used the negative heart stamped pieces to put in the holes on the white background. I used the heart border die from Birthday Blooms Stamp Set to make the festive background paper. I die cut a couple of extra ‘lovely’ word scripts. I just used scissors to cut them out and then glued them on top. I used stampin Blends to colour the Reindeer. I used a light Smoky Slate blend to make some shadows and I added some glaze on nose and eyes with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen – remember to leave it to dry for a couple of hours.

Scandinavian Christmas Hugs Card Using Cookie-Cutter Christmas Stamp Set

Hello,

I hope you are having a festive time. I just popped on to show you the second card out of four Scandinavian inspired Christmas cards using the Cookie-Cutter Christmas Stamp Set. The full list of products are listed further down this post.

All my Scandinavian cards are inspired by my Danish childhood. My mum would buy a Norman pine tree in the beginning of December every year sourced by the local scout club. It would stay outside the house, still in the net until around the 20th or 21st where we would bring it inside and decorate it with lights and every branch would have a bauble, heart, Santa, elf, drum or angel on it. On the top we put a star. Then some silver tinsel and some danish flags. At this stage Christmas decorations would take up 85% of the space in the house leaving my dad incredibly grumpy.

For this card I made a little tag out of the card stock I stamped with the heart border stamp from the Birthday Blooms Stamp Set. I die cut three hugs word scripts with the lovely thinlits dies and glued them together to make it more dimensional. I then dumped it on a versamark ink pad, covered it in gold embossing powder and heat set it. To be honest I didn’t have any gold card stock and I used a pebeo gold marker to colour the edges of a piece of whisper white card stock. That’s what’s great about having the stampin Blends as well. If you don’t have card stock in the colour you need – just use Blends to colour whisper white with.
