I am still on a Christmas card making mission and this week I selected this cute image Bear n Stocking by Beary Dust Stamps to work with.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers using bright reds and greens. I selected bright papers from various Christmas packs by DCWV and Papermania and used a sketch from A Die for a Sketch for the layout, rotating it to fit my image. I used a labels die from Nestabilies to cut a mat and frame and mounted on thin 3d foam pads. The image was then mounted on 5mm thick ones.

Well they said in the week that it was going to be 18C today, sunny and T-shirt weather. Currently it is raining and extremely windy so I guess they got it wrong…..There is still piles of snow from 2 weeks ago in places by us so I could still build a snowman. Doesn’t seem quite so odd to be making Christmas cards then does it?
