“A Traditional Christmas”
is the new theme this month at Vintage Stamping Challenges.

Yes, it is coming up to that time of the year again…when we start looking
towards making our xmas cards for friends and family.
I hope you aren’t like me and leave it all a little late
and then the big rush is on!
Every year I rush my way through the last half of November
and make a promise to myself that next year I will be more organised…
ummmm….at least I now have one card done!!!

I have kept this pretty simple because I think that xmas cards
shouldn’t be overdone…
but I still wanted to play with my inks.
So I have used the wrinkle free technique for my background
– just using blues.
Then stamped some snowflakes…using different shades of DI’s
and adding some glitter…
(sorry, it doesn’t show up in this pic, but it is pretty)
Then I finished with some holly leaves and a little ice stickles.

Flonz has some beautiful xmas stamps to pick from and I wish I haven’t
ordered more!
