Katzelkraft DT Card

Hi everyone, it's my day to post on the Katzelkraft blog and I've a Christmas card using the gorgeous tree stamp from Lumiere de Noel plate.

To get the multi coloured ink effect on the tree I made a custom ink pad using cut and dry felt [thank you Tim H :)] which I inked with distress ink refills Barn Door, Bundled Sage and Tumbled Glass. I then inked the stamp from the custom ink pad and stamped onto the white card. I've matted onto red card and used SEI patterned paper in the background. All the edges were inked with Walnut Stain distress ink and I added some ribbon, twine and a rusty tin bell to decorate.  A nice quick card and easy to make in multiples once the ink pad has been made which makes it easy for any last minute Christmas cards.

We've had a lot more snow the last few days which isn't making it easy to get out and about, I hope you're keeping warm where you are :)
