Christmas Countdown

onsdag 8. august 2012


 When I saw this weeks sketch at Sketchy Colors I knew immediately that I wanted to make a card with it, and even better; I knew exactly how it should be too.
I bought the stampimage at Änglafröjd this summer. It's an absolutely lovely little shop in Arvidsjaur, in the north of Sweden. (Actually I bought "a few" more stamps there, and lots of papers, flowers and other stash...)
Well - back to the card; the sketch gave me the idea to kind of fold the frontsidepanels over each other - fun, or what!?!
All papers are leftovers, mostly from MajaDesign and Papirdesign. All edges are inked with DistressInk WalnutStain - can you imagine what my fingertips looked like after inking all these paperpieces??!??
I think blue and brown works quite well together, and I really like blue christmascards.

 Here's the imagepanel folded back, 
the back of it has got a little christmasgreeting (Kort&Godt) stamped on
(the front of the next panel has also got a greeting (Kort&Godt here too) stamped on:
 On the next picture the second panel is opened, and a third greeting (also this one from Kort&Godt) shows:
 Here the front of the card is completely opened, with all christmasgreetings to be seen. The two greetings on the last panel are from Kort&Godt (right side) and from Storyteller on the left side.
 Inside the card I punched out white panels with the same Martha Stewart PATP-set as I used on the front. I inked the edges with DistressInk WalnutStain, and stamped on a christmasgreeting (Norsk Stempelblad AS) on one of them.
Here's a closer look at one of my newest Tildaimages - I think she's sooo cute, and I've wanted her for so long! I coloured her with ProMarkers, using most every browncolour I have (and I have them ALL!) 
Around Tilda I put on some LiquidPearls (WhiteOpal) in various sizes.

I found inspiration for my christmascard in quite a few challengeblogs this time:

  13. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much approximately this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something. I feel that you simply could do with some p.c. to pressure the message house a bit, however other than that, this is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I'll definitely be back.
