Here we are at the end of April when saw the
latest challenge over at
that gave me the jolt I needed to get started on
making my Christmas Cards.
It's Anything Goes as long as it is Christmas.
The details are Here
I got caught out last year when I had my knee surgeries
and didn't want that to happen again.
I did say to myself that I would keep
part of the month dedicated to building my stash.
So here I go with my first Christmas card for the year.
I love the soft bluish tones for Christmas and my background
here is from my bits box using Lindy's Magical's then I did
some stenciling from TCW
with Tim's Salty Ocean Oxide Ink.
My deer head is a die from ARTplorations
(a favourite of mine)
smothered in Stampendous Copper Embossing Enamel,
Ranger Copper and Colour Blast Deep Water
Adding more texture with Ranger Clear Rock Candy Crackle Paint
and adding more Copper Enamel.
I think he looks rather 'rugged'.
Inked a couple of circles and the STAMPlorations Sentiment
in Ground Espresso Oxide
heat embossing with the Ranger Copper
Die cut my frame adding my deer with metallic paper behind it
then attaching to metallic card base.
Popping this card over to
The Watercooler Challenge for their
Thanks for dropping in today.
Really love reading your encouraging comments.
