I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! We did...the boys and Morgan came over and we had a nice breakfast, gifts and fun. I do have to admit I sure miss little kids on Christmas morning though. I guess that's why God made grandchildren...I can't wait till we get a few - LOL!!
I thought I'd share a few winter related cards that I made for some friends who don't celebrate Christmas. Winter is always a good theme and the newest Club Scrap kit - Shades of Winter is perfect for making these cards.
For my first card I used a piece of "Frost" pattern embossed cardstock. This stuff is wicked - I inked up the upper 2/3's using Nautical Blue Memento Ink and the bottom portion using Grey Flannel. Added my border strip and die-cut the "Let it Snow" circles. Stamped the sentiment and added a few metallic snowflake circles and I'm done!
This card was soooo easy. One of the pattern papers in the kit shows a feathery frost scene which I used as the main focal point. Added the sentiment and a few more of those wicked snowflakes and it was done!.
This is my favorite of the cards I made that day. I colored the berry branch stamp with my Memento Markers using Rich Cocoa for the branch and Danube Blue on the berries. Huffed a bit on the stamp to moisten the ink and stamped it onto a piece of cream cardstock. I used the Paris Dusk marker to give the berries a bit of a shadow on the bottom and a white gel pen to add the highlight. I then stamped the evergreen branch several times using Bamboo Stalk and Grey Flannel. LOVE how that panel turned out. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock, inked the edges and matted with a bit of the blue metallic paper included in the kit, a few snowflakes and double stick foam tape and it was finished. It took a bit longer to create but I think the results were worth it.
Tomorrow is the monthly Club Scrap Blog Hop...be sure to stop back and check out the stocking stuffers I made for the boys. Not what you'd expect for guys but made with love.
