I got the inspiration for these from someone over on uks (sorry can't remember who!). I have used Tim Holtz stamps and distress inks in peeled paint, fired brick, faded jeans and dusty concord. I stamped the image on white card and then matted it on gold/silver card. For the backgrounds I applied ink using a blender tool then stamped snowflake images using the same distress ink and also gold/silver. To finish off I added gold/silver ink around the edges of the cards.
I must say I am really pleased with how these have turned out (I made one of each design in each of the 4 colours). So thats 8 christmas cards made and its only the begining of May. Hopefully this year I won't be left making them on Christmas Eve.
