Good evening, I hope you had a great start to your week. This weekend it hit me hard....Christmas is just around the corner...I need to get my finger out and start getting prepared lol cos I've barely given it a thought. I kind of like Christmas to feel special so I don't like to start too early...but then again I don't want to be left panicking at the last minute lol. Anyway, I decided to try and get into the spirit and spent most of my weekend making Christmas cards and I thought I'd share one today.
So I'm not a big fan of traditional Christmas colours in the main. My tree (always real) is about the only thing in the house at Christmas that is, how it's decorated....not :P Anyway I decided to go with a Pink Christmas, though it's a violet pink. The paper is by Maja, not a Christmas collection but this covered it's not like anyone will notice lol.
All papers have been stitched and inked with DI in Vintage photo, I've used some cheesecloth behind the image.
I love, love, love this stamp. It's A Joyful Tilda, one of the latest collection, love her outfit and she looks so adorable playing in the snow so I used some shabby white frantage to make it look like the snow was flying around. She's coloured with Copics, my usual skin tones plus RV63, 66 & 69 & E40, 42, 44 for her clothing. I've used some liquid applique and sprinkled it with Glamour Dust for the snow she's standing on.
I've used a few dies here (me using dies? no big suprise there huh?) The ones to shape the card are from Go Kreate . I've also used some Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags , Some Marianne Design Creatables Snowflakes Dies and one of the La La Land Crafts Stitched Tags, you can find all 3 die sets at Dies to Die For and I've added the links so you can just click on them to find them easily.
I've decorated the inside with the same papers as on the front and added some of the same snowflake stamps, this is an old stamp set of mine from Wild Rose Studios, I think they still make it though.
Well that's all from me today, though I'll no doubt be sharing more Christmas cards in the following weeks.
I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:
