Christmas is fast approaching so you should be finding all the Christmas card challenge blogs and making more cards.
Here is a great one for you to do - Happy Little Stampers September Christmas Challenge has the optional twist of trees on it.
I needed to do a challenge for a shaped card so I went on my Silhouette and was looking at the files that I had. I had been struggling with a Christmas card with trees on it - I had it in my head but no stamps that matched my vision. This design popped right out at me. I could make one card and take two things off my to do list.
I used scraps for the house and snowman. I loved this shade of green I used for my tree so that was a new sheet of paper. I cut two layers of each of the shapes to give a little dimension to each element.
The sentiment was stamped on kraft paper and heat embossed. I love to use clear embossing powder on anything I stamp with VersaFine Black Onyx ink. I tied a little piece of twine around the sentiment. I did ink the edges of all the elements. I even inked the kraft shaped card base.
I think I will make a few more of this card for my cards for this year. It went together very easily.
I am thinking about putting yellow behind the windows so it looks like there are lights shining - what do you think. I have also thought about splattering it with white paint.
Please come join us this month at Happy Little Stampers for our Christmas challenge.
