Blue Christmas

No, I’m not depressed, I just like blue. So this Christmas set (my favourite for this year) was based around blue and grey, with one extra feature colour in each. I think the coral red was my favourite… Even though Christmas trees aren’t actually blue..

Christmas watercolour trees

The trees were a free magazine Christmas tree stamp used with a variety of colours of Distress Oxide Ink which was then loosely coloured in and dragged with a paintbrush for the watercolour effect.

This card was inspired by my new curtains, which I like to think of as semi-abstract winter trees. Really pleased with them after 30 years of re-using in our bedroom the curtains designed (4 years previously to that) for our lounge in the previous house!

Villa Nova Norrland Indigo

This is entered into The Male Room challenge: BLUE I think this design would work well for male cards of all occasions ๐Ÿ™‚

and CAS on Friday who are still asking for Christmas cards, bless them ๐Ÿ™‚

Also The Card Concept #105 {Christmas Tree} share a picture of your favourite Christmas card this year


Blue, a cold colour,
Unlike my heart which is warm
Blue for happiness…
