Yes I know what you are going to say in that Christmas has been and gone but I decided to start making Christmas cards throughout the year more this year. The Sweet Pea Stamps image by Charity Dauenhauer that I have used is called "Silent Night". It is available as a digital stamp.
I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens. I used a circle die and cut a circle out of a sticky note, stuck it behind the fairy and the wolf and then used my blue Pan Pastel to colour in the background. I find this so much easier than using a distress ink as I haven't got very strong hands.
I do like traditional red and green for Christmas so I have kept to this colour scheme. I have tried to keep the card as flat as possible as well as I doubt they'll be a change in the cost of postage in 2014 for the better so it's "pancake Christmas cards" again!!! I have used some backing papers that I got off a friend for Christmas. I have finished the card off with a tissue paper flower, pearls, ribbon, holly die-cut, glitter scrolls and a sentiment that came in the paper/decoupage paper pack.
Here is another Christmas card I have made using a Sweet Pea Stamps image by Ching-Chou Kuik called "Where we met". I know it's not technically a Christmas image but I thought it would be perfect. It's available as a digital stamp.
I have coloured the image in with Promarkers. I have used a selection of small snowflake stamps and Tim Holtz's Victorian Velvet and Spun Sugar distress inks to stamp snowflakes around the image. The backing papers I was given. I have finished the card off with a sentiment from my Perfect Companions Christmas CD, die-cut snowflakes, pearls and die-cut deer.
