I don't tend to make Christmas cards in the summer , I prefer making them when the days get darker and miserable, but as we have had some days like that here is a Christmas card.
I bought this die from amazon it was less the £5 with shipping and although it took a while to get here from China for the money its great value. I cut it out in white card and stuck strips of black behind for contrast. I attached to a blue distress ink blended background.
I decided to create a winter scene so cut a window in my base card using an oval die.
The foreground I created using a Martha Stewart punch to cut leaves which I coloured with spectrum noir aqua glitter pen to give a frosted look. I created some bushy undergrowth and added some winter wildlife in the form of bunnies coloured with distress ink.
Although I made the card with the intention of it being a Christmas card, without the sentiment I think it would make a fab winter month birthday card too, so I'm keeping my options open and will add the sentiment later.
I thought I'd seen a design that inspired me to create this card and was sure I had saved it on my Pinterest inspiration from others page so I could credit the designer and say thank you but not sure if I dreamt that as I don't seem to be able to find it so if I did use your design as my inspiration thank you and sorry but I can't find you to link your inspiring card
