... and I think to myself, what a wonderful world!!
Yes I’m here again with another Christmas card using my new Lavinia stamps … you will be seeing a lot more of these as I enter the mad scramble phase for Christmas readiness!!
I decided to experiment with a green colour scheme instead of blue as per yesterday’s cards, using my new Speckled Egg and Iced Spruce DO’s and Versafine Clair in Rainforest. I also used my new Fir Cone Branch and Mini Holly stamps to partially frame the scene, and tried heat embossing my stars with Silver Pearl embossing powder … looks quite twinkly in daylight but not as impactful as white. I also highlighted the edge of the moon and snowdrifts, tree branches and pine cones with my Sakura stardust pen - looks much more twinkly than in the picture!
Stamps: Lavinia “Small Fairy Fir Tree 2”, “Fir Cone Branch”, "Mini Holly", "Stars 1 Mini" and “Spirit of Christmas”;
Media: Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks - Iced Spruce, Specked Egg, Cracked Pistachio; Versafine Clair - Rainforest; Sakura gelly roll pen - Stardust and red.

Just got back from having my Covid booster jab, so I'm going to have a cup of tea and a chill out now, and hope that my arm won't be too sore to craft tomorrow!
Take care, and thanks for visiting.
