My first Christmas Card....

And's all your fault!!!!

I don't normally bother with making Christmas cards (just couldn't face doing the amount needed) but I did think I would have a go this year.  I thought (like Claire) that if I started now it wouldn't be soooo bad!!
I had to order some Christmas stamps though......

So, here is my first EVER attempt!!!

I tried a technique from a card that my lovely friend Amanda showed me didn't go according to plan.  The blue sheet is vellum covered in ink and stamped with the snowflake to remove the wet ink.....with me?  Then stamp the blue snowflake onto white card (from the vellum)...  Anyway, it was supposed to look different to this!! ( I know I haven't explained that at all well!)  So in the end, I stamped the snowflake with white onto the blue and layered the vellum on top attaching with brads......CLEAR AS MUD!!

Well, then I got a bit carried away and made another.....

My supplies of Christmassy things (papers and stuff!) are limited so this is quite plain but its a start.  Think the snowman is pretty cute..
So, 2 down......goodness knows how many to go!!!
Thanks for stopping by
Take care xx
