Yet another Christmas Tree made with the triangles in the Christmas Patchwork Party Digikit!
Created in Serif CraftArtist 2

The row of tree was created using the patchwork triangles in the kit with a bit of drop shadowing. The snow is one of CAP2's brushes and the stars punched from the same paper as the background. The snowflake borders were made by cropping another of the papers in the kit.

This time it's a card made using the diamonds from our new digikit...Christmas Patchwork Party 1
It has been created in Serif CraftArtist 2

I made the star first...2 layers of glitter stars from the diamond section and then a patterned star in the centre.
Grouped and saved. Then it was loaded into Photolab (in CAP2) and the Zoom Blur feature was applied.
This was then placed over the plain green paper from the digikit, grouped and layered with the dark blue and green patterned papers.
The snowflakes around the star were made using one of CAP2's brushes.

Another tree made from the Patchwork Fan Segments in the Christmas Patchwork Party Digikit

This card has been made hybridally (?)...the tree was made in CAP2 and then 'deconstructed', printed on to card and then the design put together by hand. The tree has depth by angling the segments with silicone rubber glue.
The green background paper is from the digikit and by happy accident I found some mint coloured sequin stars!


This is another sample card made using the new Christmas Patchwork Party Digikit
Created in Serif CraftArtist 2

This card uses the Fan Segements and Fan Inners (which can make a fan aslo). The fan segemnst and inners were arranged to make a fan...the inner segments have drop shadows to give depth to the fan
(not very well I'm afraid!).
The snowflakes and lace are features in CAP2 and the fan handle has been used as buttons in the corners of the topper.

Here is another card made using designs from the Christmas Patchwork Party Digikit.
Created in Serif CraftArtist

This time the tree has been made of the patchwork square designs, with the decoupage button giving some depth to the tree. The scalloped white square was made from one of the stencils in CAP2 and stars were punched from background paper from the kit.

Here is another sample card made using designs from the new Christmas Patchwork Party 1 Digikit

This has been created in Serif CAP2 using the decoupage feature for the central diamonds. the corners were made from the green glitter diamond, cropped in half, positioned across each corner and then the whole design cropped so the triangles fit the corners...then a navy paper layer.

This week's CD Sunday Challenge is 'Christmas In Pink'
This is my entry

The card has been created in Serif CAP2. The background is from Debbi Moore's Vintage Christmas CD coloured pink. The Christmas Tree has been made from layers from my Layered Christmas Tree Digikit. I wanted to put snow around the tree but the CAP2 brushes didn't work properly, so I used a snowflake brush from Photoshop. The glitter around the card was a CAP2 brush which did work!
