Christmas Blog Hop

Who doesn’t love this time of year!  There is a slight chill in the air (only because we cranked the air down – I live in FL); holiday movies are on the TV (much to the objection of my family) and Christmas cards are in full production!  How much better can things get?  I hope you enjoy the cards everyone made for the Christmas Blog Hop.

To create the background I used whisper white cardstock and liquid resist.  I splattered the resist on the paper in random dots.

To create the snow banks I tore pieces of paper in valley shapes and sponged the sky around it.

Just keep working with the blues until you get an image you like.  After the ink dries you simply rub off the resist with your finger.  Easy as pie!

I stamped each tree twice and made each tree 2 layers thick only “fluffing” the top layer.  Here are some close up images of the card.

I used glimmer white paper to create the front wrapped snow back.  Start with a piece 5.5 X 4.25 and cut it at 2.5″ to get the 2 different size “banks”.  Cut the wave at the top of each piece.
These images show how to cut the “insert tab” to create the bend in the bank.  They also show how the card closes to fit in an envelope.
Wrap the first flap and decide where you want the fist tab to be placed.  This is where you will cut the first “slit”.  Bend the next flap and decide where the 2nd flap should fall and cut the slit in the first snowbank.

No worries the front doesn’t have a statement that is on the back.
