It's week #11 over at Jingle Belles and I'm getting myself a nice pile of Christmas cards all ready to send to my friends and family.This week Leslie aka The Crooked Stamper has choosen a non-traditional colour pallette of kraft,light blue and white, I prefer using non-traditioal colours at Xmas so really enjoyed doing this week's card.
This card was difficult to photograph to show it at it's best but here's what I did, I embossed the BG cardstock with the Tim Holtz snowflake folder and dry brushed some white acrylic paint over. I used a Tim Holtz Salvage Sticker and attached it to some kraft card,so this is my 'Cool Yule' Christmas card.
