Silent Night

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

I'm well and truly into the swing of making my Christmas cards now and I'm loving having the time to make them, rather than rushing at the last minute as I usually do.  I've seen a few cards on the Inkylicious Facebook page using white ink on Kraft card and really liked them so I think this will be my main theme for this year's cards  I missed the demo at the Doncaster show as it was too crowded,  so it's just been trial and error but I'm happy with the end results.  I've made my own apertures out of acetate and used them as my templates, using different shapes to have a little variety.  I'm just posting one of them today but I may show more over the next few weeks. Here's my card:

I placed the aperture over the Kraft card and used an Ink duster to cover the oval with the white pigment ink.  I then stamped on my Winter Log Cabin with Memento Rich Cocoa.  I used the natural line at the bottom of the cabin stamp to water colour the snow.  Once it was dry, I used a white gel pen to add snow to the trees and to form the mounds of snow in front of the cabin. I added Fluffy stuff and heated it to give dimension around the cabin roof and to make the snow look heavy.  I drew around the edge of the oval with Stickles glitter glue and added the sentiment using white embossing powder to make it stand out more.  The card still looked a little bare so I added snowflakes using a Versamark ink pad.

I'm entering this card into the following card challenges:
Enjoy the rest of your evening and I hope to be back with you soon. x
