watercolor for cardmakers

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

I really was sitting down to work on a card from the sketch from Santa's Slackers and was looking at the paper and the image I printed out of the cute little girls waiting for Santa to come down the chimney when this card started to develop in my head!!  I see so many beautiful cards with gorgeous snowflakes on them and decided to give them a whirl!!!  I cut the snowflakes at two inches from Christmas cart that I got free with my gypsy!!!  layered them and then used my ran the top layer through the xryon to get a even coat of adhesive before putting on the Martha Stewart crystal glitter.  Wow does that make them sparkle!!!  And what is a vintage card with out Tim Holtz and a couple buttons!!!  This card has quite a few layers on it!  I tried not to make it look so busy like the thoughts that were going through my mind!!!  I hope I was able to  capture the whimsy of Christmas through a child's eyes!!!  I think this is one of my favorite cards I have made for the season!!  Thanks for visiting and hope you too capture the magic of Christmas through card making!!!
