Merry Christmas ♥ CF Blogcandy!

Vi nærmer oss jul, bare ei uke igjen nå! Disse er veldig kjappe kort å lage, enkle og ensfarget ~ med en av mine favoritt Tim Holtz teknikker med Distress ink farger, Evergreen Bough blekkpute og vann dryppet på bakgrunnen, tørkepapir for å trekke opp noe av fargen ♥ Hoved motivet er et juletre stempel fra North Star Stamps og det er varme-embosset med flere lag embossing pulver. Enkelt men veldig lekkert :)

There is a fabulous Christmas blogcandy over at Creative Fingers, and if
you enter before Dec.31st., you may be one of our three lucky winners!
I'm sponsoring the #1. surprise candy, which is full of 
Stamps, Ribbons, Bling, Papers & other goodies! 
 And our Angelique is kindly donating six plus four amazing 
stamp sets for winners #2. and #3. ♥ ♥ ♥
*** Merry Christmas ***

We're closing in on christmas now, only about a week to go :) Theese cards are very simple cards, all monochrome and quick to create. The christmas tree stamp has been heat embossed in green, several times to get a good 3d effect. The journaling page inside and background on the first card are made with the distress ink Evergreen bough and flicking water droplets, removing some color with kitchen paper ~ one of my favourite Tim Holtz techniques to do ♥
