Let it Snow …. Elsewhere! Here in Australia the seasonal Christmas cards depicting Snow don’t suit our climate so here at Crafty’s we made one with a difference. Hope you like it.
We stamped the sun from Day at the Beach in Daffodil Delight then sponged over in Peekaboo Peach. Wesponged the sky in Soft Sky, the water with Pool Party, and the sand in Tip Top Taupe then added highlights in Crumb Cake with the dots in the Swirly Bird Stamp Set. The grass was from In the Meadow and stamped in Lost Lagoon, now retired.
Of course the sail boat is from Swirly Birds as well, in Real Red and Crumb Cake. Inside we continued using the Day at the Beach with words from Endless Wishes retired also.
Several of our ladies were away this week and Betty has moved further up the Queensland Coast to a retirement village. We wish her all the best in her new home but she will be missed.
We changed it a bit, adding the sun from the Swirly Birds Stamp Set, a couple of birds, a greeting and an coloured tree.
We used some buttons behind each of the wheels so they were hidden well but still allowed the bike to move along the curve. Because they all used different inks the cards have a unique individual look. The two cards on the left have their card fronts mounted on green backgrounds – a happy mistake that turned out well when the stamping was started on the wrong piece of card stock! My little birds on the top card are there to cover an extra dob of ink that crept into the wrong place! I love that about card making. Mistakes are easily rectified and sometimes add more to the card as does the sun on the top left hand card and the sponged background. It look great.
