These cards were made for two different challenges. Firstly, the square card has been made for the Artistic Stamper July challenge which is "Christmas in July" The A5 card is my entry for the Papertake Weekly challenge which was to make a Christmas Card.Both cards have the fabulous Madonna & Child stamp by Linda Luckin on them.The stamp can be obtained from The Artistic Stamper. For the square card the image was coloured with glimmer chalks.The image was matted on some blue Bazzill. I also cut a mat from the same blue Bazzil and attached this to the card blank. Then I matted a smaller piece of patterned paper which is by Heidi Grace,is embossed and utterly delicious.The image was mounted on foam pads to give some dimension and a peel-off greeting was added.
The other image was coloured with watercolour pencils. I matted it onto yellow and then blue Bazzill cardstock. I used some paper from my stash and cut a mat slightly smaller than A5 which I placed on the card blank. I then cut a narrow strip of yellow Bazzill and placed it horizontally across the card. The image was then placed towards the top of this strip, again on foam pads. A peel-off greeting was placed to the side of the image to complete the card.
