#842 – Christmas Wishes

Hello! I’ve been thinking of sending Christmas cards to friends who celebrate, but wasn’t able to for the last few years. This year, I finally was able to plan properly and send them out on time – so they will hopefully receive them before the festival! But I hope they do forgive me for publishing it before they receive it!

So here’s card number one –

Warm Winter Wishes

{Pardon me for the grainy, blurry images, but I had to send all the cards and was in a hurry to take the photos, and the cloudy weather outside was not being my friend!}

To make a quick card, I made use of the pretty prints from the Elements pack from CrafTangles, called Christmas Animals. The animals are totally adorable, and the prints and paper are of a good quality too. I cut this particular deer in a bauble by hand, and foam mounted it on a grey toned cardstock on which I had splattered some Picket Fence distress paint.

I thought of adding a little green and red to the card by imitating the flowers on the little rabbit’s head. I used leaf dies from Pink Fresh Studio’s Dainty Blossoms and the flower dies from Paper Smooches’ Flowers to die cut water color paper, water colored them and then adhered them on the card. The sentiment, from Neat and Tangled Winter Wishes stamp, came in the end.

With this card, I am joining the following challenges –

  1. I think this is adorable-I love how you added the interest to the background with the distress ink. And what a sweet image, coloured to perfection and in the most gorgeous bauble. There is so much detail right down the the design of the greenery that make for one stunning card. So good to see you at Time Out

  2. What a sweet image! And lovely coloured! Great how the light green background works with the other colours; it let’s it all pop so nice! Thank you for joining us at TIME OUT!
