A Warm Blanket



I was going to take a break from Christmas cards, but before I’ve even put the decorations away, I’ve been inspired by a few challenges.

 Firstly, the blanket and snow in the photo at Curtain Call. 

The colour palette at Christmas Card challenges reminded me of Basic Grey’s LBD collection,which I have in a digital version. Some of the patterns look quite blanket – like. 


The sketch at Sunday Stamps  gave a structure to bring it together.


But it was missing a point of interest amongst the blanketyness(!). So I remembered I’d seen some challenges for using snowflakes  ( Tis the Season  and Merry Monday ) so I cut out a big snowflake I made from a Kerri Bradford Silhouette workshop.

I added glitter, a brad and a stamped sentiment.

Marina, I love all the texture and detail in your card!!! Beautifully done! I too have been feeling inspired by all the fab challenges before the decor is boxed up. Well, to be fair, my children's trees have been put away but the rest is still there, lol! Oh well, I have a jump on next year's Christmas card stash and that is ALWAYS a good thing!
Cheers,
Shanna :)

Love the textured look of the background and its neutral color! The snowflakes makes the card all wintery and pretty and can be used for a Christmas or winter occasion, as you prefer!
