Yes, I know!! The dreaded 'C' word!
A challenge was set over at the Rebel Stampers to create a Christmas card each month using certain criteria. The idea being that it will give us a stock of cards to use at Christmas time.
I was a little slow in doing this and so did the January and February challenges at the same time!
January's challenge was to use a stamp that had not been used before. For this I used a Paper Smooch Greeting:
I decorated a card blank using Olive green paper.
I stamped the Santa image in Archival ink onto a journalling tag.
The holly wreath was die cut and added to the side of the card and the sentiment stamped at the bottom.
February's challenge was to use gilding flakes:
I stamped the Snowman image and covered it in gilding flakes.... I'm getting better at gilding but need more practise!
I then stamped a sentiment and added a snowflake and some bells tied to ribbon.
Well, that's 2 cards made ready for December!!
Thanks for looking....
