Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.
I have been working on a lot of Christmas cards recently and keeping them flat for mailing. Postage is getting expensive, especially overseas, and if the cards have a lot of layers and rhinestones the cost is the same as a small package.
I have a few to show today using Design by Ryn's Snowflake set and a lovely Impression Obsessions' sentiment - 'Not only at Christmas'.
The background (above) was created using Raspberry and Coral Distress Inks. I made a stencil from a Memory Box die and blended more ink over top. I stamped with Designs by Ryn's Snowflake set and then added some die cuts by Memory Box. Instead of rhinestones I added holograph stickers to the snowflake centres to keep it flat.
The next two are in the 'Shirley colours', a favorite colour combo but I do love other colours as well :)
background (above) again is Distress Inks and I used a stencil that I
made with a Memory Box die and Distress Ink. I didn't use Ryn's snowflakes on this one, but over stamped with Penny Black's Star
Poinsettia and added some gold enamel embossing. The snowflake die cuts
are by Joy Crafts. Again I added holograph stickers
to the snowflake centres.
background (above) was created with Peacock Feathers and Citron
Distress Inks. I stamped over top with Design by Ryn's Snowflake set with the same inks and embossed Seaweed set with gold glitter powder. The
die cut is from a Memory Box - Holly Holiday Frame set.
Happy Thanksgiving weekend to my Canadian followers.
