A pastel Christmas card

Hello lovely people,

I have been busy creating some simple Christmas cards that I could easily mass produce so I wanted to do something that was a bit more effort, using my all time favourite LOTV Christmas stamp.  I used pastel colours to fit the theme at Lili’s Little Fairies Challenge and this sketch from the Papertake Weekly Challenge as my layout inspiration;

I haven’t done many pastel Christmas cards but loved how this one came out especially with the edges distressed with sandpaper and some stitching.

I have used ProMarkers to colour the image; don’t you just love the sweet little bunnies all snuggled up in their stocking?!

  1. Hi Kat, what a gorgeous card. I love the cute image and your colouring looks fab. I really like the soft pastel colour scheme you’ve used. Thanks for joining in with our “distressing” challenge at PFP this week. Hugs, Denise x
