A blog devoted to the cards I make in my tiny upstairs space. When my sister stays there, she calls it an "artist's garret". I'm not an artist, but am an enthusiastic cardmaker - hence the title "Cardmaker's Garret".

Blue and Green Christmas

Merry Monday has a fun Christmas card challenge this week:

I used the green and blue, with a white card and a bit of silver:

The image is coloured with coloured pencils, blended with Gamsol and blending stumps, with some Wink of Stella on the ribbon and the silver tags.  It's bordered with a thin bit of silver shimmer paper and then green cs, and the sentiment is stamped in silver.

Stamps - Jofy gifts, Rubber Soul sentiment
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Delicata Silvery Shimmer
Paper - white and green cs, silver shimmer paper
Size - A2
Accessories - coloured pencils, Gamsol, Wink of Stella, Lil Inker stitched rectangle die


  1. Wow! I LOVE how you've used these colors, Susan! What pretty presents!
