Looking for some Christmas card ideas? At my September Christmas Card classes we made 3 cards using some of the Christmas things in the new holiday catalogue. (Browse all the Christmas products here - Online Store Christmas Section.) I'll be sharing the cards with you over the coming week.
I quite liked this one with Special Season stamp set.
The DSP is Winter Frost and that's Pool Party at the top embossed with the Pretty Print embossing folder. I'm rather addicted to embossing folders - I think I have them all. Can't resist a new pattern. This one is handy for lots of occasions.
I went a little overboard with sponging the Encore Silver ink around the tree because I had to disguise a fingerprint. Oops ;-) Watch out when using the silver ink - it takes a little longer to dry than the regular inks. It is just lovely though - gives a nice crisp silver.
I used StazOn to stamp the greeting over the tree. (From Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set.)
So are you a traditional Christmas colours crafter, or do you like the non traditionals? I quite love blues and silvers on Christmas cards.
