A tiny Christmas card

Hi, a very quick Christmas card from me today (and a very flat one as I am still without a camera grrrrrrr). I got some freebie little pearlescent cards with some card stock and I've used on to make this weeks card for the challenge over at Bah Humbug which is 'Through the window' and Cardvaarks challenge which is to make a tag or mini card using some stamping.

I usually make large cards so this was a bit of a challenge but thats the point of challenges I suppose lol. I cut a square out of the card front and attached some acetate to the back, adding some silver border peel offs to look like leading  on the window.

I created a little brayered scene for the back of the card. I masked the moon and hills and added dots with a versamark pen for snow and then brayered with blue dye ink and then very lightly with black dye ink. I then sponged the hills with a little grey dye ink for some definition. I added the trees (Tim Holtz stamps) and then some glittery highlights with a quicky glue pen and some Glenda's Glitter in snowflake. The snowman is from an Elusive images themeplate, stamped and coloured with promarkers and sakura stardust highlights.

I'm also entering this card in this weeks challenge from Die Cut Dreams Christmas Challenge which is Snowmen

Thanks for calling by

  13. Fantastic card Claire. Love how you have used simple peel offs on acetate to create your window. Thanks also for the details of how you created your beautiful background. Am a bit late in visiting because your comment and link was one of those which somehow landed in the 'spam' folder - a new feature of moderated blogs so I apologise for not realising sooner.
