Here is my last post on the Seven Hills Crafts blog for 2017. The shop closed yesterday until 27th of December.
And my last card for this year is - surprise, surprise - a Christmas card.
I kept the colour scheme pretty monochromatic and went with shades of turquoise and grey - cool colours for a cool season.
I started by stamping, colouring with coloured pencils and fussy cutting the super cute bear hugging a girl from W Plus 9' Holiday Hugs.
To create the background I die cut a rectangle using Waffle Flower's Lacy Layers. I added some ink blending in aqua and some splotches of pink ink. I also created splotches of glitter. By accident I discovered that this works great with the Varnsih Marker. It is a liquid that is easy to spill. Then you can sprinkle glitter on it and it will glue to it.
For the sentiment I used Mama Elephant's Puffy Holiday Greetings. I heat embossed it in grey on a scrap of white cardstock.
Then I assembled the card using grey cardbase.
I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you in 2018!
