I ordered a christmassy stamp from Clevercut (I think) a while ago as I have decided thanks to Becky that most of my cards are going to be monochrome, which is fab as it means I don't need to do loads of painting!!! The stamp I really wanted was the one Becky used of a snowman from Joanna Sheen it has so much detail, it was out of stock when I tried to order it so ordered the one I have used on these cards as a standby incase I couldn't get it.
Although it doesn't show in the pictures (maybe if you can click on it and enlarge it) but I have added sparkles on all of the trees to make it look like frost and on this card have also added some sparkles randomly on the swirly part of the backing paper, this also has a slight shimmer to it. my 2nd card also has the sparkly trees and a bit more bling in the corners as I felt they looked a bit bare!
I would love to know what you think of them and if you think they need anything else adding to them, especially in the top corners of the image.
I am entering these cards for this weeks Cute Card Thursday (although not sure if you would call them cute?!) as the challenge is 'Lots of Sparkle'.
I had to make an extra 3 cakes for the tea bar yesterday, that's 12 in total this week, and she has put in an order of 12 for next week, so guess what I'm doing tomorrow? Yes I'll be baking my socks off in the kitchen!!!
P.S. I received the above mentioned stamp from Joanna Sheen this morning, and ordered myself some nestabilities yesterday to! But will have to wait to use them as I am giving them to hubby to keep for my birthday!!
