Another Christmas Card for CVC

Hello dear visitors, 
I hope you have not too much stress, I know, these days before christmas are very busy, so enjoy a few moments to rest.

Today I want to show you another christmas card for our Christmas Challenge over at Country View Challenges. This time I made a pretty flat one, good for mailing.
I also wanted to go for a monochromatic, restrained style.
So here it is:

I used a 15cm x 15cm (6" x 6") card, some pre gessoed watercolor paper, cut in size, slightly smaller, Distress Oxide shabby shutters and the PaperArtsy stamp set ESC07 .

I smooched the ink on my crafting surface, spritzed with water and put my paper on top. I repeated until the whole paper was covered. Then I spritzed it with water and used a paper towel to soak most of the watered color to get a very soft tone.

When the paper was dry, I created some "hills" with torn paper and DO shabby shutters, which I applied with a blending tool (sorry, I forgot to take a picture). Then I stamped the wonderful tree from the stamp set with Archival Ink Peat Moss. I also stamped only parts of the tree to make them look like standing behind the hills and to create an optical distance. I stamped the sentiment with Archival Ink Potting Soil

For some sparkle I added some snowpaste and glitter on top of the hills. Then I added some snowflakes using a stencil and modeling paste and sprinkled some glittersnow - or snowglitter? on top of them. To add more interest I stamped some flying birds on top.

Lastly I stamped some tiny "snowflakes" and made them shine with diamond stickles. I adhered the picture to the card and added some stamped christmas wishes to the inside - that´s it!
This card is flat enough to be sent by post as a "normal" card!

Here are some close ups:

I made another one in a pretty similar style, which I do not want to keep from you:

Well, now I hope you´ll find time to join in with our challenge this month! As usual, you can win a 20£ voucher to spend in the shop!
Now I want to thank you for your visit and I wish you a wonderful Advent time and a Merry Christmas!

  6. Hallo liebe Evelyn, hab ich nun endlich nach langem Suchen deinen Blog wieder gefunden, kam immer nur auf Google+ bisher. Deine Weihnachtskarten sind alle so wunderschön gestaltet, jede ein Unikat und ein Träumchen. Danke für deinen netten Kommentar auf meinem Gips-Guß-Beitrag. Bei Gelegenheit mache ich mal eine Fotoserie zur Entstehung dieser Bilder. Um das auf die Schnelle zu probieren habe ich einfach ein dickes Pappequadrat mit 2 Lagen Tesakrepp umklebt um eine Form zum Gießen zu bekommen, die genau in das Passe-Partout paßte. In den noch oberflächenfeuchten Gips habe ich mit dicker Nadel das Motiv geritzt.
    Nach dem Austrocknen kann man dann bemalen. Das Ganze kann dann mit Sprühlack oder mit einer Wachsschicht überzogen werden. Hoffe das erklärt schon mal deine Fragen dazu.
    Ganz liebe Grüße
