I used the same quick technique - cutting thin strips of a post it note and using them to form a masked cross on my central panel before stamping my design. This time, I used the outline holly image from Watercolour Winter and coloured it with markers then sponged in a background with Pool Party ink. The mask was then peeled carefully away, a stamped sentiment added to the centre using dimensionals, then the whole panel attached to a card base.
I love these colours - they remind me of those bright and frosty Christmas mornings, which is what I like to have if we're not having a white one!
Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Watercolour Winter, Timeless Type (sentiment)
Ink: Early Espresso, Pool Party, Raspberry Ripple
Card stock: Very Vanilla, Naturals Ivory

I don't know what it is but we're all ready for Christmas in our house and it's taking great restraint not to rush out and get the Christmas tree! Last night, my daughter and I made a Christmas playlist together and I can't remember when I've laughed so much. Naturally we had to do tossing our pony tails and neighing along to the Sleigh Ride song and we were doubled up over a video of Slade singing Merry Christmas Everyone in a studio where you could hear someone hammering and drilling in the background. Ahhh Christmas - don't you just love it!
I'll be back tomorrow with more crafting fun - see you then!
