It's the night before Christmas
and all through the house..........
I've always loved that rhyme!
I used to like 5pm on Christmas Eve
too. That was when all the shops
would be shut and "what was forgot
was done without"!
Nowadays, there's always a shop
Reminiscing over, we have a
beautiful card from Helen Chilton
today and here she is:
Here's a card to wish you all a Happy Christmas!
Here's how I made it:
Mask off the snowy layer at the bottom and sponge some
VersaMagic Sunflower Yellow and Mango Madness onto the sky
Using Direct to Paper method, rub on some Sea Breeze
and then add Night Sky round the edge
With the snow mask still on, stamp some branches in the distance
using Whey and Aspen Mist.
Start to stamp the birch trees in Eggplant,
quickly adding Stampendous Frantage Shabby White
embossing enamel while wet
Remove snow mask and stamp the foreground trees
Rub some Eggplant lightly onto the snow to give it dimension
Stamp the greeting from the JOFY set in Eggplant -
curve it to fit round slope.
Finish by adding foliage, pine cones and robins.
Here's a close up of my double sided card.
VersaMagic inkpads: Sunflower Yellow, Mango Madness, Eggplant,
Aspen Mist, Sea Breeze, Night Sky, Whey
Stampendous Frantage embossing enamel: Shabby White
Truly a card for someone special Helen
thank you very much and on behalf
of all of us
Merry Christmas to you
