Christmas Card


Just a quick blog today.  I was very pleased to see that I had another of my cards acknowledged at Wee Memories.  I got the "I am a honorable hoot at Wee Memories" award.  Click here to take a look at my card.  It used my new stamps from The Craft's Meow, the owl in the Santa hat and I also used my favourite technique at the moment - resist embossing.

Here is my card for today. I am entering this in the Wee Memories challenge #78 "Free for All".

Christmas Blue and Red

This is the card I decided to make several of to send overseas this year.  I wanted something that looked interesting, but wasn't too time consuming and didn't involve too much cutting.  It again includes my favourite technique, resist embossing.  For the background I used the ornaments from  Hero Art CL236 set - I have made good use of these ornaments.  I white embossed the ornaments and then inked over the top with faded jeans distress ink.
The sentiment is also from this set. I  used the spellbinder label dies to cut the shape for my sentiment.  I kept the die on the white card and inked over the top of it so that it would leave a narrow white border.
Although the card includes red, I wanted to try something different from just the traditional colours of red and green, so hopefully with my use of blue I have achieved this.

Thanks for stopping by and for your comments.
