(Early) Christmas Cards 2013 (6): Nordic Blue (1)

Nothing much to share this time. Now with the work back (back to school in my case) I'm struggling with catching up with reading your blogs and writing mine. Definitely less time now for faffing around on the internet ;)

I'm still on building up my Christmas cards collection. Been experimenting with some cold frosty colours. This time it's a cool Nordic blue look :) These cards are mostly about punching, stamping and glueing. Nothing more than that. Simple is how I like it. I used Martha Stewart Himalayan Snowflake punch for the card below. The backing papers come from a card pack - a freebie to a card making magazine from the past. 



The Noel and reindeer stamp and the other little stamps come from A Muse Studio and the stamped snowflake border comes from a Scandinavian set of stamps by Martha Stewart. The punched floral border is Poinsettia on vine MS punch. 
Now, I can finally put to use my entire collection of Nordic-looking stamps I've been collecting for months :))) Yay!



Off to make some more cards now. Working on some Vintage Scandinavian this time :)
