It's the most wonderful time of the year....

Yes, it's that time of year again, when I will be turning my thoughts to jingle bells and holly, time to get started on the Christmas card list. For today's card, I used a memory box snowflake background stamp, stamped in white stazon, the bare tree, and the deer trio and star......The card base is 5 x 5



I added sparkle to the snow, and hand cut the snow banks at the bottom, they had a sprinkle of glitter as well.....


I do love making Christmas cards, but as I don't generally make Halloween cards unless it's for a magazine or design team, and of course we don't have Thanksgiving here, you may get a bit sick of looking at Santa by December. Thinking about it, I could make some Thanksgiving cards for some of my American friends, I do love those Autumn russets and golds, and it would make a change from ho ho ho in October!

By the way, the sentiment on today's card wasn't stamped, or typed onto the card via the computer. I used Safmat. Wait until Thursday and my Letraset post to hear a lot more about this fantastic product.....

See you tomorrow x

  3. Καλημέρα! Εμείς κάνουμε ακόμη βουτιές στην θάλασσα αφού η θερμοκρασία σήμερα θα φτάσει τους 32 βαθμούς! Όμως είναι ευχάριστη έκπληξη η προετοιμασία για τα Χριστούγεννα. Όμορφη καρτα!

  6. Christmas is my favorite time of year ... I like all holidays, but this one feels extra special and brings back many wonderful childhood memories. So I will be very happy to see all the Christmas creations you want to share!

    Speaking of which, this one is beautiful. I've always loved white on white and/or monotone cards, and this one with snowy forest is so pretty. Great background too.

    Oh Enfys ... you are such a tease! You have me more than a little anxious to hear all about "Safmat". My curiosity is about to bubble over!

  14. Totally love this one. blue and white Christmas cards like this one make me happy, regardless of the temperature. It's still a little over 25 degrees in the day time, but I love making Christmas cards all year round Although with the Greek postal rates going up again, sending a lot of Christmas cards to our relatives and friends in the Netherlands and elsewhwere may become too expensive.
