Going wild for wasabi at Christmas

Still have Christmas cards to make? Good, because I still have some to show you. But I will warn you that the photos are all ropey, due to lack of daylight.

Here’s one for a friend whose favourite colour combination is this. She made her swaps with it for Convention and challenged me to guess which colours she’d used. I got two out of three; Wild Wasabi and Early Espresso.

I stamped some random snowflakes on Whisper White cardstock and then punched them out, layered them on Early Espresso cardstock and again on Bashful Blue. In fact, this card is pretty much random snowflakes everywhere. A tiny rhinestone adds a touch of bling.

  1. Very pretty and love the rhinestone - you need bling at Christmas!

  2. Hi Helen, am loving this, especially as Serene snowflakes are on my radar for my next stamp set! And the little bling is fab too - definite case of less is more.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
