I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge - No Pattern Paper

It is Paige's turn to chose the challenge this week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges. and she chose no-pattern paper.  The possibilities for making Christmas cards is endless.  

I chose to use a snowman skiing for my image for this challenge.  I thought this digital stamp from Just Inklinked was so cute and a great card for my oldest grandson Josh this Christmas.  To colour him I used bright colours and added Diamond Glaze to his goggles and the water.  The snowflake background is an old rubber stamp by PSX and the die cut snowflake is cut from my Cricut.  I love the way the easel card makes him look like he is sliding down the slope.

Now I am one more card closer to having my Christmas cards made this year and it is only August.  Come join us at Holly Jolly and be ready for Christmas early this year.  
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
