Merry Christmas

I'd like to wish all my wonderfull readers and subscribers and followers a Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
I enjoy it immensely when you visit and comment and it keeps me going (at cardmaking I mean).

I'd like to enter this card into the 
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: winter wonderland 
and the
Lawnscaping challenge #120: Merry Christmas.

For my card I've used 300grams hot pressed smooth watercolor paper from Schut.
I've used Distress inks for the frosty banner (I used shaded lilac and a lot of blues) I can't remember exactly which ones as I started last night, I let is dry overnight and this morning I've heat embossed the snowflakes from the Lawn Fawn Winter Penguin and a snowflake from Leane creatief bv.
I've used Zing white embossing powder. The sentiment is part from winter penguin as well (happy) and the Christmas is from Simon Says Stamp Christmas set.
I've then placed a few droplets around the banner and mounted the panel onto a cardbase with foamtape.
The watercolor panels are slightly smaller than the card so I've used some blue glittery washi tape on the top to fill in that bit and to give the card some shimmer.
put a lot of weight on it to flatten it back.


  1. Really nice card, I have enjoy all the beautiful creations you've made and had inspiration with them. Happy Christmas!

  2. So pretty! Great use of distress inks! Thank you so much for playing the Lawnscaping Challenge!

  3. This card is so absolutely gorgeous! I really love how those colors blended together and it is pastel perfection! I thought it was so clever of you to use the colored background and then heat emboss the white snowflakes on top. This brings to mind every happy snowy memory and I'm so glad you shared it with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Can't wait to see what you come up with for 2016!
