Winter Wonderland is the theme this week at Crafty Boots Challenges.
I know a lot of people in Australia think it’s wrong to have Christmas cards made with winter themes and snowmen, but I think a lot of us have friends and relatives who live in other countries where it is snowing at this time of year. I know I do. So I have made a couple of “snowy” Christmas cards.
This first card uses the Lovely as a Tree stamp set – an oldie but a goodie, especially when it comes to snow-laden wintery trees. I have stamped everything in Versamark ink onto some Silver Foil and heat embossed with White embossing powder, then layered the Silver Foil onto some white cardstock. Simple, but effective. And it’s flat, no bulky bits that stick out, so can easily be posted off without Mr Postie getting cranky!
The second card is again, predominantly white and silver, this time the trees have been stamped in Silver ink, and the cute little bird from For the Birds stamp set, has been stamped in Memento ink and coloured with Blendabilities. I think he is off to decorate those silver trees. 🙂
And in other news, we have a couple of cheeky new members of our family….. here is one of them trying to “help” me type up this post 🙂
