CCM #225 Winter

We have a very easy challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers. To ease us all back in this is the perfect spot to put all your unblogged cards you created for Christmas. The only criteria is that although they can look Christmassy (Wintry) they must not actually say that they are Christmas, so no Merry, Happy or other Christmas greeting, and NO SANTAS either please!


My card was created with a Find It die for the frame, and some Card-io stamps for the deer.

I used Clarity’s masks to create my sky which I made with various blue inks. I used several different brands as none of them had the correct colour I wanted. The snowy stars were made with a sticky stencil I made myself from Tim Holtz’s Snowy Stars Die and a Clarity blank mask sheet, and Brilliance white ink.

To accentuate the snowy hills I edged them with glitter.
