Winter Wishes in Green and Yellow

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a great weekend.  I've been away from blog land for a little while but back this morning with more Christmas cards:

I normally create 'one of a kind' cards but here is what I would call 'batch' card making, but with some changes.  I used a fantastic tree die set from Impression Obsession as the feature on these.



As you can see I varied the colours and lay-outs slightly:




The backgrounds were created on one master sheet using Dylusions spray inks.  I blended Distress Inks where I wanted to darken it a little.   I over stamped with a snowflake from Chocolate Baroque's A Child is Born.   Winter Wishes is from Impression Obsession as well at the Fir Tree Die  and Sm Snowflakes Die sets.  I added Distress Crackle paint and then glitter over the trees.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirley

Lovely Christmas cards Shirley, the great thing about dylusions is that you never get any two the same so every card is individual, much the same with brushos really, both such fun. Anyhow love the green and yellow hues and the dimension of the trees.

What a stunning collection of cards Shirley, they are still one of a kind as they are all different even if it's only slightly. Hope you're having a great weekend.

These are all so beautiful with the pretty greens and hint of brown in the background and on the trunks, and then the complete contrast with the white snowflakes and stars, and not forgetting the glitter on the trees . Gorgeous creations Shirley! x

Your cards are beautiful Shirley ! Lovely colours, wonderful background and every card is a bit different. If you have many (Christmas-) cards to make, it's understandable that you work in batches, i do so too ! All the best ! xx Enny

Your 3D trees look great against the patterned background, giving so much depth.
Great that you have found a way to make multiple cards yet they look so good..
