Every year I have intentions of starting making my Christmas cards early….but it doesn't happen! Since finding the ABC Christmas Challenge, via Samantha at Penrith Crafts back in September I have quite a few made already as I entered the R and T challenges and made a few extra each time. This time the challenge is 'U is for Unusual Christmas Colours' and they want to see non-traditional colours being used.
I took some of my Christmas stamps away to the caravan over the weekend and although we went out and about a bit I also had some playtime. I also took some of my 'new' Tim Holtz distress inks.
…Ground Espresso and Blueprint Sketch.
The stamps are quite old - the Artemio tree is from a set I use a lot and the swirl is from an Inkadinkadoo set.
I do try to keep my cards flat for posting, but I don't think the thin pads I used will make a great deal of difference to the depth of the card for the post.
I did leave some cards flat and I'm not sure yet whether they will get the same treatment, I also experimented with different colour combination too although slightly more traditional colours.
While I still haven't put anything away I may may even make some more!!!
Thanks for looking, Chris
