The 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge is a Technique Challenge. We would like you to make a card using watercolours. I used stamps from Penny Black – Birches, Winter Branches, Festive Snippets. I first stamped the trees birch trees with Versafine Black. Next, I stamped a row of background trees by Tim Holtz in Sage Distress Ink. Using Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Vintage Photo, Sage) and water I painted the background trees, birch, and sky. I used a snow marker texture pen for the snow. I added a sentiment and taped the image on the front of the card. I used Ranger’s Tim Holtz Watercolour cardstock

This week at CHNCC we are looking for Glitter. I chose to stamp 2 funny little snowmen from Paper Smooches called Swanky Snowdudes. I coloured them with Copics, then painted white glue on top of the snowmen and added fine glitter. Note: I add a small bit of water to the glue so it spreads evenly. I also used some glittery snowflake stickers and backed the image on cardstock with glitter on it.

This week the Design Team at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge are looking for a “Sweet Treats” themed Christmas card.

For this month’s card, I decided to go very simple. I used a beautiful floral die-cut and backed it with a patterned paper. I was not overly fond of this paper, but in contrast with the bright white foreground, I think the results are wonderful.
I made 4 cards, 2 with patterned backing, two with solid. I find the patterned paper cards look softer, more romantic. I am also showing the different ways you can use the die.
I look forward o see what patterned papers you are using this month.
Tip: If you have patterned paper you be not like (and it not double-sided) use it for making envelopes.
