... well, to be fair, it's about time. I've only got a couple of months to make about 150 Christmas cards. So I'm leaving it a bit late. Still I tend to work better when under pressure.
The poinsettia card was the first of this year's cards, and this is the second.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Holiday Labels No 14, Nutcracker Sweet; Stampin' Up - En Francais
Inks: Kaleidacolour - Fruitcake; Memento - Tuxedo Black; Stazon - Jet Black; Versafine - Onyx Black
Spellbinders: Labels 10, Labels 14
Pens: Promarkers - can't remember which colours - sorry!
As soon as I made the background card yesterday, I knew what to put on top. This is St Nicholas from the Nutcracker Sweet set by Waltzingmouse Stamps. I just adore the images - they are so easy to colour. I made the gold labels 10 matte by tracing around the die that I used to cut out the image. I then just cut it out, it gives a nice narrow border, but it's not quite perfect. I used the frames that Claire designed for Labels 14 - they're great - the starburst frame was stamped using Stazon; with Versafine for the other frame and greeting. I'm quite pleased with the overall result.
Check back tomorrow to see what I come up with for the snowflake background. Bye for now.
