The scene is so serene. Although I have to admit, I really don't like snow. Only pictures of it. :)
For my card I took the blues and the snow with a pop of red.
I used Gelatos in shades of blue and white for the background. Next I stamped a Crafter's Workshop stencil called Winter Wonderland using Clearsnap frost white. I used another TCW stencil for the 'joy' and a Faber Castell big brush pen. Lastly, I punched the snowflake and covered it with an iridescent glitter glue.
I've been noticing that many people have already put up their Christmas tree. Have you? There are 2 reasons why we haven't yet. We have a really big tree and a small house. Furniture has to be removed for the tree to fit. The other reason is we have Jack.
Although looking so sweet here he knocked down many ornaments by climbing through the tree last year....when he was smaller. This year he might just bring the tree down!
With this image what else could I make but Christmas cards! Before I show the card I want to tell you where the paper came from. I received a Christmas card in the mail and the inside of the envelope had this awesome lining. I couldn't just throw it out. Soooooo I made these cards:
Has anyone heard of Susan K. Weckesser? She is an artist and stamp designer for Unity Stamps. For the past 5 years she has hosted what is called the Christmas Love Campaign. This is year 6. The whole idea is to create things to give away. You can post your creation and story to her blog, Facebook, Instagram. There are even prizes. So these cards and more will be given away. I'm thinking of giving a whole box of cards to the local headstart program where my sister works.
