Hi there. Before it is absolutely too late to show any more Christmas cards, here are a couple of cards which I made for my nearest and dearest. The first is one I did earlier in the month for our son in Australia. I am always afraid that it isn't going to arrive in time as Australia Post is rather random, especially as I was a little bit later sending it than usual, but luckily it made it with a few days to spare. I used some of the stamps from Chocolate Baroque set Robin the Spruce and the deer is from a Claritystamp set called Winter Wonderland.
I decided to use a piece of kraft card for a change, and started by masking the moon and putting a mask in place for the snow slopes, and with a blending tool added the sky using Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. I then added Brilliance Moonlight White ink for the snow and then added the foreground bird on a branch adding some red using a pencil, and some of the other branches with Smokey Gray Versafine ink, and then a few of the branches with Ground Espresso Distress Ink all covered in Versamark ink and then heat embossed using WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder, and I also added some more tree branches using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with WOW Opaque Bright White EP. I then added the deer using the Ground Espresso DI and again heat embossed with the Clear Gloss EP. I took away the moon mask and decided to put some mist across the moon and around it too using the Brilliance Moonlight White ink. I then decided to add some bits of snow and highlights using a white gel pen.
I mounted this on to a piece of silver card and added the silver sentiment.
The second card is I made for my Hubby. It was a fairly simple card but he was pleased with it.
I used a Docrafts stamp from their Create Christmas range, and embossed it on to dark blue card using WOW Silver EP and then cut it with a square stitched die from The Works. I then backed it with some silver card and made a white snowy embossed background using a Simon Says Falling Snow stencil, but unfortunately this doesn't show at all in the photo. I then added a silver sentiment to finish it.
Neither of the photos came out that well. This time of year with rather grey dark days it is difficult to take a decent photo of anything.
Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope to see you again soon.
