Holiday Handmade Card Challenge Part 3

Over the river and through the wood

To random people’s houses  we Go

The (rein)deer know the way to carry the sleigh

Through the sky full of white and drifted snow.


Card Attempt #5

Random Santa Sleigh Painting on Blue

This card was just paint and blue cardstock. I spotted a painting online somewhere and tried to imitate it. Unfortunately, let’s just say things didn’t work perfectly. I accidentally drew the houses too high, and so Santa and his reindeer don’t really look like they’re in the sky… Plus, I only had one size brush to work with, so it was a bit hard to do any attempts at detail or shading. Umm, yes, that’s supposed to be the moon in back of Santa’s head. At least this one fits nicely into a normal envelope unlike all the other cards before this.

Card Attempt #6

Snowflakes and Reindeer

Ah, here is another one that fits into those long normal size envelopes (I don’t know what they are called!). I took black construction paper, cut it so it would fit and then folded it. Then, I glued a white piece of paper on the inside so a message can be written. On the front of the card, I mixed and glued scrapbook paper to create the “Happy Holidays” and backgroud. I then went and cut out small snowflakes. A few snowflakes were murdered during the process because I accidentally cut through the whole snowflake while making it. Psss… don’t tell…that’s also why the hole in the top snowflake is bigger in the middle. My scissors decided to cut all the way through instead of stopping… Such disadvantages when working with tiny pieces of paper.



More to come….
