Wishing you Christmas Joy

Hello there. It’s a very, very wet day here today, so plenty of opportunity to get to my craft room – after I’d done some tidying and sorting out, anyway.

I decided to use the colours and sketch from the current challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches, and create this Christmas card:

I began by stamping one of the Christmas tree images from Simon Says Stamp Festive Trees and all three of the challenge colours, and filled-in some of the triangles for added impact.

Once I had die cut them, I added them to a small square of white card which I had embossed in a rain embossing folder – but used the de-bossed side. I did toy with the idea of ink blending – but I wanted this card to be quite clean – so kept it white.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set, piecing together three of the separate stamps, and that gorgeous little snowflake is from a Uniko stamp set – and I actually fussy-cut the snowflake out! I know! Me? Fussy-cutting? Well – I was desperate to use this snowflake on the end of the tag – so a girl’s gotta do, what a girl’s gotta do, right?

The blue layer on the square is a piece of Stampin Up DSP – which I’m trying to use a lot more of, and I think is in the correct colour……

I shall be entering the following challenges:
