Blue Christmas

Hello my crafty friends, I hope that you've all had a lovely weekend.

I'm here today to share with you a card that I've made for 52 (Christmas) card throwdown.  Their theme this time is a colour challenge to use blue or purple and a metallic colour.  I think that blue works really well on Christmas scenes and so this was my choice.

I started by masking the moon and hills with acetate and then sponging them with Adirondack Denim.  This is the only colour that I've used  on this card.   Once the hills were in place, I then stamped in the trees and log cabin.  The stamps that I've used are by Stampin Up, Lindsay Mason and Inkylicious.  I finished the card by adding silver peel off stars to give my metallic element.

I'm also entering the card in the following challenges:


  1. It's amazing, Sandma! Beautiful landscape! I must try masking technique!
