After mailing or hand-delivering a total of 80 Christmas cards for family and friends, I realized that I still had a few people that I wanted to connect with via a card over the holidays. That meant I needed to pull my Christmas cardmaking supplies out and get busy. One of the cards I came up with was this:
For the snow I used some light shading with Evergreen Bough distress ink, which is really more of a teal than a green. For the sky, I used Broken China and Dusty Concord. The trees were stamped with an old wood mounted stamp from Inkadinkadoo called "Stand of Pines."
I added some sparkle to the trees and to the star under the sentiment with a glitter pen I think you can see the sparkle in the picture at left.
The whole scene was matted with some dark purple cardstock. In fact, the cardstock I had on hand wasn't quite dark enough, so I used my Dusty Concord distress ink along the border that would show before I adhered my main panel.
The inside was simply done with a stamped sentiment matted on some more of that inked up purple cardstock.
Edited to add: As I was writing this post, I meant to enter it into the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge #139 - Winter Wonderland. Somehow as I neared the end of my post, I completely forgot to link it up, so I am doing it now.
I also made a completely different Christmas card, but I'll save that one for another post.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
