Blue Christmas


I'll Have a Blue Christmas...
 
I had to get all my Christmas cards built and finished today so they could be mailed out.  I'm not usually this late but life gets busy.  I spent all day building about 30 cards or 5 different sets.  This Santa in blue was my first batch!  I even had a little helper, my son:)  He helped me water colour the Santa's!  He did AWESOME. 
 
Santa is coloured in Peacock Feathers distress inks with our blender pens.  All the furry bits and buttons are pumice stone distress glitter.
 
 
The ornate frame is simply done in brushed pewter distress paint on chipboard.

 
I stamped this background Christmas stamp in peacock feathers distress ink. 


With this many cards to make I try to keep them easy for me to create.  All while trying to keep them pretty.  Stay tuned there's more Christmas cards to post.  Including my favorite!
 
Thanks so much for coming by to see:)

  1. Wow! That is a lot of cards. How long did it take you to get 30 cards done? It seems to take me quite a while just to do one or two.

    1. I'm pretty quick when I make this many. These took me about 6 hours to make all 30.
