Yes I am ashamed to say this is the first Christmas card that I have made this year in spite of my intentions to start earlier. So now as usual I will be rushing to get them all finished in time. The challenge this month at St. Luke's Charity Cards Challenge is for a CAS Christmas card, and I made up my mind to enter as it's ages since I have taken part, but here it is almost the end of the month again and I've only just about made it in time.
Here is the card I made, it is only small, about 4 x 4,5 inches, so not a lot of room for much white space, but the design is quite simple so I hope that it fits the challenge.I stamped the main image onto the card with Memento tuxedo black and onto some spare card with Memento rich cocoa. I coloured the trees with a green coloursoft pencil and the white distress marker.This turned out to be a bit tricky as the pen tip kept picking up the green and I had to keep cleaning it on a piece of kitchen paper. I was going to use a glue pen to add glitter to the snowy bits but my pen seems to have run out or dried up so I used white Liquid Pearls instead and some ultra fine crystal glitter. I stamped the star above the trees with Brilliance galaxy gold ink and embossed it with WOW clear gold highlights EP. I then cut out the little deer from the brown stamped image and used silicon glue to to stick him over the black one to give just a little dimension, and then stamped the greeting at the top. All the stamps used are from Chocolate Baroque, the main image is from a set called Christmas Creatures, the star and greeting came from other sets.
I am also going to enter this at Crafty Ann's- Christmas in October.
and Stampin' for the Weekend - Anything Goes.
Thank you for taking a look and for your comments, I really appreciate them all. Jean.
