Let it Snow!

Hi All,

I had hoped this year to make a few cards Christmas cards each month but so far I have made only one and this is my second. I am very behind my target but I do find it hard to get inspired when the big day seems so far away!

However this week I really liked the colour combo at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and wanted to play along. I also loved the 'splatter' challenge at Just Us Girls. I had the idea of combining splatters and snowflakes to create this card:




I made it one layer so I could join in the challenge at One Layer Christmas Cards-twist of circles-my splatters are circles-right?
I will also enter the following challenges:
Winter Wonderland-Blue Christmas

The snowflake stamps are from Uniko and the splatter stamps are from Paper Artsy

Xmas card 2 done!!
Have a good day x

  12. Two cards, that's more than some. I'm sure you'll get into the right spirit as the season approaches. The good thing about making Christmas cards all year round is that we seem to take inspiration from the season we are in, like this springlike pink and blue which actually looks perfect and feels very Christmasy in spite of the non traditional colors.

  16. Splatters are circles that have slightly melted, so I think they totally fit in the challenge!! I had hoped to have made a few more too, oh well. This one is perfection!

  17. How do you splatter so well?! When I attempted this, it looked like I coughed up something. Yours are perfect well behaved splats. Amazing!
    hugs, Asha
