Challenge Me a Christmas Card with Michelle Lupton

Hi there

I'm thrilled to have been asked by Michelle Lupton to join her in her Challenge Me a Christmas Card series. 

Michelle has asked lots of friends in blogland to challenge her to make a card using, for example, a specific theme, technique or product, etc., and for each of us to also share a card.  Michelle has had some big names from the crafting community joining her this month, so to be asked to take part is an absolute honour!

The theme I chose for Michelle was 'Christmas Night Sky'.  My card is below and you can click here to see what Michelle created.  I'm now off to have a look myself!

Here is my card...

I created the sky on the top half of my card base by blending Distress Inks.  I then stamped the sleigh and reindeer image in black.  Next I die cut the main white panel using a landscape die with a large expanse of white for the snow in the foreground.  I then stamped the bunny and the sentiment in black before adhering the panel flat to the base.  I added a further three die cut trees which were adhered on glue dots for a little dimension.  To finish I added some twinkle to the snowy trees using a shimmer pen.  The shimmer can be seen more clearly in the image below...

Materials used:

  • Ink: Distress Ink - Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire, Black Soot; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Stamps: Card-io - Christmas Scenery 2; Uniko - Most Wonderful
  • Dies: Memory Box - Quiet Cabin Landscape; Craft Emotions - Pine Trees
  • Accents: Spectrum Noir Shimmer Pen - Clear
