have started making Christmas cards ages ago but I like the rush of making all mine last minute when its cold and dark outside often wet or snowy. I have had real problems getting my head into gear to make this Christmas card and it has taken me 3 weeks to actually put it together, and I now have a couple more to make early too as we have family visiting soon and we send them home with all their Christmas gifts and cards so I have to get organised.
This card is for a teenage boy such an awkward age when making cards as they are neither young nor adult. I decided to go down the line of masculine colours on a fun generic winter image.The stamp I think is Whimsy and I coloured with promarkers and cut out onto a circle with a docrafts X-cut die.
The papers are from Lili of the Valley and I love the black snowflakes it just gives it a more masculine feel . I used a kraft base card and followed a sketch from Atlantic hearts. The brads are from craftworks and the sentiment strip is from a set by Kanban eons old and only the dregs of the set survives like this strip now.
