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".

Santa Flying Over Snowflakes

Peace on Earth has a lovely mood board (see below).  The Santa flying in his sleigh on the bottom right inspired me as did the colours and the snowy scene on the top left.

The background is a gelli plate done with blue acrylic paint and a snowflake mask.  The Santa and his reindeer are die cut from black cs twice and glued together for more substance.  The sentiment is white heat embossed on black and die cut with a banner die.
Please come and join us at Peace on Earth.  You can either be inspired by the mood board or make an "anything Christmas" card.
