I love pink and blue on Christmas cards, as a change to the more traditional colours. The other day, at a loss for inspiration for Scrappy Mo's Rudolph Days January Challenge, I came across a NBUS stamp set, and made a little batch of four cards all the same:
- 4" x 6" black card blank, tent style
- slightly smaller panel of white card so the black card blank formed a border/frame (which isn't very clear on the above photo!), stamped using a Woodware 'Christmas Trees' set (bought in Coventry last Autumn) and Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink. The trees and the sentiment are from the same set - and making four all the same was a doddle using the Misti of course
- coloured the trees with Baby Pink and Duck Egg Blue Pro markers
- glued the panel to the front of the card blank
Four cards for the Christmas card box, making a total of 23 in there so far - almost on target for my 12 per month - yippee! With more time and enthusiasm it would be such fun to paper piece this design!
I'd also like to enter this over at Darnell's latest NBUS Challenge #10, bad me didn't go for the option of using some bubble wrap for making a background - but it looks fabulous over at Darnell's!
And, Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge and Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for January as well.
I'm really struggling here - can someone please send back my mojo if they spot it wandering about looking lost!
