At the Sir Stampalot Challenge Blog they’re asking “let your imagination run riot and show us what you will be sending out to friends and family this Christmastime”. Well, I’ve been making loads of different Christmas Cards for the past few months but I have to say that I’m really enamoured with this very simple (and quick, and easy, and flat – therefore easy to post!!!) card. I got the idea from GinaK at StampTV and followed her directions using a couple of distress ink pads to sweep across the page and then the trees from Clarity Stamps stamped in black ink.
I highlighted the trees and other areas with a little glitter and will probably use a lot of different sentiments at the base on future versions of this. I can’t decide if I like it better on the black or the white – obviously I had to use a white card for the image before mounting it on the black, the other was directly onto the card itself. The white card is recycled and has ‘bits’ in it which was a little challenging to stamp on. This is a very quick project – especially if there’s no layering to do – but I do love the result. 🙂
