I also want to show the cards that I made for the two most important men in my life. Unfortuately our son's card only arrived at his Sydney home a day or so ago, due in part to my being a little late sending it though sent by the date specified, and also the vagaries of Australia Post. So here they are and they complete my cardmaking year.
This was made using a stamp by Studiolight and I stamped with Versafine Nocturne and Satin Red Inks and the embossing folder is a Sheena Douglass one which doesn't seem to be available now, and over which I used silver wax. I finished by matting it on to white and then red card and added the sentiment using Satin Red Versafine and also used Glossy Accents on the two baubles.
I am entering this into the challenge over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop where Di has a special Christmas draw going on, and I have used snippets of white and red card. Thank you for all the great prizes on offer Di.
Finally this is hubby's card. I used a Clarity Woodland Stencil and Clarity brushes to add the ink for the background and the snow hills and slopes using one of the masks and Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky and Ripe Persimmon, and then added the three deer using Black Soot Distress Ink applied with blending foam using the deer mask included in the Woodland set of Masks. I finished by adding the sentiment using Versafine Deep Lagoon Ink over which I used WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder and darkened the edges with more Stormy Sky.
I hope you haven't fallen asleep throughout this rather lengthy post but I would just like to finish by saying that I value every one of my followers and all of you that visit and leave a comment when you can, you are all very important to me. I would just like to wish you
A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR
and it goes without saying a wonderfully creative 2020
