It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas.....

Now I can't stop singing the song in my head!  It's official - Michael Buble's Christmas album is loaded into the CD player of my car!

I thought I would share one of the Christmas designs that I have made
for my cards this year. 

I actually started these cards before the Alcohol Ink challenge on the Paper Artsy blog.  And I had such fun making them.

The background is created using alcohol ink.  It's been so long since I used them - I had forgotten how fabulous they are!

I then stamped the large background snowflake from JOFY for Paper Artsy - this is an amazing stamp!  I stamped in different ways so that the cards were all slightly different - some were stamped in white, others in blue.  Some were embossed and others had a ghosting image where I removed the ink leaving the white background.

The snowman was stamped and coloured using Prima watercolours.  This was mounted and added to the card and a scribbled border created around the edges.

To finish I stamped a sentiment and added a few gems.

I also created some in a landscape design too:

These were really great fun to make.... mainly due to the amazing stamps designed by Jo Firth-Young!

It certainly got me into the Christmas card making frame of mind that had disappeared this year.

Thanks for looking....
