Fröhliche Weihnachten (lamb)

Heya everyone!
I am back with another Christmas card... I know it is January, but I also know I was very (!!!) short on Christmas cards this time and I really need to stock up on them ;o) So I hope you don't mind seeing some more:

I made this one for the new "Anything Goes" challenge at the Crafty Cardmakers. Perfect for my plans... and maybe your plans, too? To create this card I first stamped the circular sentiment which means "Meryy Christmas" in English on my piece of white Perfect Colouring paper and die cut the panel from that paper. Next I masked the stamped area as well as the edges and created the ink blended background using Distress Inks. (The colours I used were Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet.) 

When the ink had dried I stamped the beautiful snowflakes all over it using Versamark Ink. I love the subtle effect that gives to any background! Now it was time to peel off the masks and stamp the cute lamb inside the still white area. I coloured it using Copic markers (E55, E53, E51 and E50 for the body, E39, RV09 and RV06 for the scarf and mittens and mostly Y08 for the star with just a tiny bit of Y17 to give it a little dimension.)
With a bit of Diamond Stickles on the star and some white and white blizzard Nuvo drops on the snowflakes my card was done. I hope you are going to join us for our "Anything Goes" challenge and share your talent in our gallery! Have a wonderful week and happy crafting, yours Maike

  4. Maike this is just sooo cute. I love making Christmas cards so it is never too early for that. In fact I am teaching a class next week where they have to bring their Christmas Bits Box with them so that we can finish off a few to get a heads up on next year. It's amazing how many cards you can finish off when you are in good company with plenty of coffee and biscuits on tap lol.
    Have a great day. Hugs Kimx

  5. Stunning card. Love the colours you chose.
