It's time for a new challenge over at The Stamp Man and this time we would like to see cards using 3 Christmas colours.
This is another A5 card that I've made for an order. I have to say I'm not that keen on making cards this big, I don't know why, it just doesn't feel right ! Anyway, I started with a piece of white cardstock and then blended Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint DI over it. I used a piece of torn paper to mask off the card and make some hills across it. The trees are from the Tim Holtz Reindeer Flight stamp set. The reindeer is from the same set and has been embossed with gold EP. I've cut it out then mounted it onto red card and cut that out too. The sentiment is also embossed with gold EP, the stamp is from Tim Holtz's Mini Holidays stamp set. I've used an oval deckle edged Nestability to cut it out and lightly sponged some DI around the edge.
The border is Tim Holtz Sizzix Die called Scrollwork, I love this die ! I've just added some nail heads for a little more interest.
Well the snow is still lingering, I do love to see it though, I know the chaos it causes but it just feels really magical to me ! (I'd better stop now before I burst into song! ....lol.....)
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge.
Thanks for looking
