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".

Tweeting for Peace

Two challenges were in my mind for this card:

Jingle Belles is asking for "Peace on Earth".

The Twelve Months of Christmas wants one or more birds for "Have a Tweet Christmas".

This was a very quick card to make - stamped the image and heat embossed with a blue glittery embossing powder, trimmed the panel, and popped it up on fun foam.

A good design to remember for the last minute rush of making Christmas cards at the end of November!

Stamps - Local King Rubber Stamp Winter Wishes 3
Ink - ColorBox Blue
Paper - white cs
Size - A2
Accessories - Stampendous Blue Magic Tinsel embossing powder, fun foam

  4. This is gorgeous, Susan, and I imagine it is even more so in person! A simple design that packs a huge punch!! Hugs, Darnell

  5. I love the simple and great CAS design, Susan! The blue glitter must look prettier IRL. I was thinking I could mask and heat-emboss an image even though I don't have a rectangular, scene stamp. Thanks for your inspiration! Hideko xx
