Corrugated Christmas Card

Hi everyone it is not too early to start creating holiday cards. When I saw a sketch challenge on Twitter the idea came to mind to create this card. Although this challenge ends November 1st you might want to check out other challenges at The House That Stamps Built.

 Here is the sketch:

Here is my take on the challenge:

Here is my take on the challenge:

I started by cutting out my window. If you decided to cut out a window it is easiest if you cut your shape on the back side of the corrugated card. Then I painted with metallic paint. The photo doesn't do it justice. The ribbon has been my stash for five years and I thought it would work for this card.

For the sentiment I used my eBrush for the background and then for the letters. I couldn't get a good job manually using the Sharpie pen and then remembered how nicely the eBrush works with stencils. Especially old metal ones like I used here. I found the snowflakes confetti in my stash and thought they would be a nice touch on the corners.

I eBrushed the sky covering up the bottom where I planned to add the snow. I used the Snow Writer and took a plastic palette knife to spread it out some hoping it would dry faster. I let it sit for a few minutes and then made prints using the edge of the reindeer clear stamp.

The reindeer is a stamp by Karen Foster. Years ago a good friend sent me the stamp. :-) I heat embossed with copper embossing powder. Then painted with metallic water color.

I decided I'll be making a bunch of cards for donating so it is not too soon to begin creating cards.

Have you used corrugated card in your creations?

Thank you for stopping by and do come back. Tomorrow there will be new challenges for me to check out.

Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!


  1. You always amaze me with your creations.
    I often wonder what to do with the crimper and corrigated cardboard but now have an idea brewing for a card. Whether or not I will get it done is another thing. lol

  2. Very cute! Love how you created a little scene in the "window". Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built. Sorry I'm so late in commenting . . .
