Those of you who follow my blog will know that I'm not a 'Distress It' type of crafter, so I'm feeling a little out of my comfort zone! I decided to use the last few sheets of a Kaisercraft paper pad which had been a magazine freebie last year and one of my favourite Woodware Christmas stamps to make this card.
Stamp: Woodware 'Christmas Date'
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black and Tim Holtz Distress Ink Bundled Sage
Paper: Kaisercraft 'Christmas Collections' paper pad (magazine freebie)
Other: Diamond Stickles
I trimmed a dark maroon and a floral sheet of paper to layer onto my card blank. I distressed the edges of each paper with the blade of my craft knife and inked the edges with Bundled Sage before attaching them to the card. I stamped the image onto a sheet of beige paper, distressed and inked the edges and then layered it onto a piece of maroon paper which had been distressed and inked in the same way. This was then attached to my card. I stamped the holly and numerals onto green and maroon papers. I cut these out and paper pieced them onto the card using Pinflair glue under the leaves to give some dimension. To finish I added Diamond Stickles to the snowflakes.
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's cards for this challenge.
