However, the lack of snow has made it decidedly more difficult to get into the Christmas spirit. Hence my lack of Christmas cards. Hence my impending panic.
Luckily, Cardz 4 Guyz came to my procrastinating rescue this week by forcing me to create a card with the theme "Fun in the Snow".
I started by coloring some texture paste with dark blue gelatos (I did a tutorial on this earlier in the week) I wanted to play with some Christmas goodies that have been stuck in their dungeon since this time last year, so I pulled out my Tim Holtz Holiday Knit stencil.
Oooooo! Sparkly - After I schhhhmeared the texture paste through the stencil, I naturally had to add some microfine glitter. #notsorry!
Then, since the background was already Holtzian, I decided to play with my NBUS Tim Holtz Syled Woodland stamp set. It's so folksy and I thought the deer would look soooooo cuuuuuute with this card.
As you can see, I sprinkled the background with a little bit of Chipped Sapphire Distress Spray Stains and then added some blue metallic floss behind the reindeer before rounding out the look with a sentiment.
He's so merry! Or unimpressed... I can't tell which. Let's go with mysterious - He's so mysterious!!
Anywho - that's my card for today, and I hope you'll consider going to play along in the Fun in the Snow challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz this week!
My colors came from the Merry Monday challenge currently underway - Blue and White with Texture! I'm also going to enter it into the Mixed Media Monthly challenge - Texture!
