Quick Christmas Card for Challenges


Hi friends!

I'm bombing you with posts (will be back in 3 hours with some scheduled kit swap Easter cards...) but I wanted to get this second entry of mine to this weeks Less Is More online when there's still some challenge left!

 Springtime can be very unpredictable in Finland and yes -last night there came some snow. Gooosh! The sun is shining warmly now so it's all melting away but the snow anyway inspired me to continue with my attempt to be ready with my Christmas cards on time this year. The sentiment stamp is Finnish for "Merry Christmas" and I've used image stamps by Hero Arts. I love the Scandinavian look of these small stamps and can already think many ways to use theses. Before stamping the images I masked the curved edge and sponged some grey ink on the card. After stamping I used white gel pen for adding dots to the background filling in empty spots. 

The challenges I'm entering:

Less Is More : One Layer Curve





I'm very much into Hero Arts Christmas stamps at the moment! Definitely my favorite Holiday stamps in my stash! 

Thanks for popping by and have a wonderful Easter!

    1. Hi Jen, how fun you thought it's patterned paper -it's just inking and stamping! Am quite chuffed though that you thought it was machine-made! :)

  4. Your stamped paper looks so unique and proffesional, no wonder some think it's a DP. I love this style, very Scandinavian or Nordic inspired!
