Well its almost time to start thinking of Christmas cards. One has to start early as overseas posting dates are always jolly early. I also generally join RSA Christmas swap and this year we must make 20 or 21 cards. Nothing nicer than having your mantelpiece filled with cards at Christmas.
Here's a Christmas design that I did a few years back and it remains one of my favourite's. Love the colours - Black/White and Silver.
The stamp of Mother and Child is by Toybox and the snowflake stamps and words are by Hero arts.
I started with a black base card. I then stamped snowflakes randomly on front of card stock and embossed with white embossing powder. I then added strip of black and silver scroll paper to card front. I then stamped my image of mother and child with Memories Black dye ink onto glossy cardstock and trimmed it leaving a white border so that it looks like a photo. I then mounted it onto black cardstock and went around the edges with a silver pen and then mounted it to cardfront after tucking skeleton leaves in two corners. I then stamped wording onto vellum using black brilliance ink pad and mounted it to cardfront using vellum tape and then added Silver music note and some silver butterflies.
