Christmas card for December Take It Make It Challenge

If you have not yet started making Christmas cards, but are yet planning to do so, you might want to see some quick-to-make card ideas, right? Well, here's one you will be able to make without too many special supplies in no time at all:

For the background I cut three hill shapes from scrap paper, and I layered them on the card. I started inking the background sky with blue Distress ink, and once done I removed the hill mask I had on the bottom of my stack. Then I continued inking the edges of the second hill, once done removed again the bottom mask, and inked the edges of the hill on the front. Easy!

The trees I stamped twice; first with black archival ink and then with clear embossing ink. The dark blue embossing powder covers pretty well the black stamped image underneath, so creating a layered stamped image was pretty easy-- no masking techniques needed!

If you already have made Christmas themed projects using stamping somewhere on your project I suggest you share your creation on Craft Stamper Take It Make It blog: At TIMI, December is a 'Take A Technique' month, but as it's nearly Christmas we decided to go with a nice easy theme: 'Sharing The Season'!

We have two prizes on offer this month, the first is our sponsor prize. This winner will be chosen randomly from all of the entries in the challenge, and the sponsor for December is Polkadoodles

Polkadoodles is an amazing online store, carrying everything you could wish for to create some wonderful art. And one lucky winner will get a £25 voucher to spend in the shop!

The second winner will be voted by the DT, and the lucky winner will have their winning project published in Craft Stamper Magazine, a GDT slot for an upcoming challenge, and will also feature in their very own Winners Profile blog post!

Wishing you a wonderful day,
