Last year I had the majority of my Christmas cards done by now. I just used the challenges and before you know it I had tons of cards ready to go. All different, and that's not always good because I spent so much time deciding who should get which one LOL! This year I haven't played the challenges as actively, so I'm a bit behind. So I figured I'd better get on it!
I pulled out Jen's sketch from last weekend and made it my starting point. Then I decided I wanted to work with non-traditional colours...they just make it kind of fun...and challenging. I chose Pretty in Pink and Bashful Blue.
The stamp set is "Wishing You Cheer". I was so happy to see it back this year! I stamped the snowman three times and coloured them in using the Watercolour Crayon Palette technique. This technique works best when you only need small amounts of colour, and these snowmen don't need much! I chose to use the vertical panel for the sentiment since it's vertically oriented...and I really like that!
I added a large snowflake charm with a pink brad in the centre and attached it with a pop up glue dot. Then I found some snowflake eyelets (all of these I've had for a million years!), set them with the crop-o-dile and put a coloured brad in the centre of each. Then I got my Stickles out and glittered up the snowflakes in Cotton Candy, Baby Blue and Stardust stickles.
The main panel of Bashful Blue Prints designer paper is popped up on dimensionals on the Pretty in Pink card base and that was all she wrote!
So what do you think? Can pink and blue pass for Christmas? My dd's loved it, and I think it's kind of cute.
By the way, I think the problem with my blog not remembering your info is fixed. Do let me know if it works for you. If it's your first time back since I fixed it, you may have to tick the "remember me" box. You'll be able to tell if it works when your comment posts because your information will remain in the box.
Happy Wednesday everyone! Sorry I didn't have a Technique Tuesday this week, and for those who asked for a template for the box yesterday, I will see what I can come up with. I don't really know how to make one...so I may do it as a tutorial.
Have a fabulous day, and thanks for dropping by! I just love it when you do!
