We wish you a Merry Christmas!

So, I am way behind on my Christmas cards. Since I make around 100, it is essential that I start early. I did get a few done right away, but then got tired of looking at Christmas stuff and moved on. Time to get going again...

I was browsing at DAT'S on Friday whilst thinking about this when I stumbled across this fabulous paper! The idea to use a silhouette image popped into my head and voila, this is the result.

Once I got the trees on there, I had to pull out the flower soft. What do you think? Very basic, but I do like the effect.

I would like to share my card for the current challenge at
Christmas Card challenges - which is to use an inspiration photo or simply make a holiday/Christmas card.

We skied for what may have been the last time on Saturday. The temps are way above zero (unseasonably warm) which means we now have mostly slush to ski on. I am okay with this -we have spent a good amount of time out at the hill this winter and it helped the winter to whiz by at lightning speed as we had no excuses to hide inside this year!

Thanks for stopping by,
Shanna :)

What I used:
papers: Little Yellow Bicycle - Christmas Text - available at DAT'S, cranberry CS
polar white flower soft


  1. I really like the look of the snow on the trees. Even if it is the dreaded Flower Soft.

    ps...100 Christmas cards is too many...yikes. The postage would be brutal.
