Holiday Cards 2014 – Day 15

By Cards

Hi All,

Welcome to Day 15! We are three quarters of the way through the series!

I’m back with another paper-pieced card. This type of card seems to be a big hit this year. Similar to the Snowy village card (Day 10) this card uses 7 different cuts to complete this image. When layered together they almost fit together like a puzzle. The only piece that has any dimensions added are the trees.

Glad Tidings of Great Joy!

Hi All,

Who’s ready for winter?! Oh man, I am so pumped for winter and all the holiday festivities it brings. In anticipation for the upcoming holiday season I have started to create Christmas cards. I will likely have a new one to share each day leading up to the week before Christmas. If you are interested in any of the cards please leave a comment and let me know! I’d love to hear feedback on which styles, colors, and themes you like!

On to today’s card.

For this card, I wanted to try out some inking techniques and create a snowbank. I achieved this look with some masking and 2 tone color blending of inks. I loved the results of the technique. It looks like it is watercolor with several layers of color, but truly it is a white base with 2 blues.
