My most adaptable christmas card idea from 2016

Using just two die sets from Sweet Dixie and some ink blending I made a large portion of this years Xmas card orders using one main design.

Using a large range of distress inks, I flicked water and added Posca Pen, to create deep rich snowy or nighttime backgrounds.

I then diecut in white card the two Sweet Dixie dies, Bethlehem (SDD192) and Here Comes Santa (SDD199) and layered them over the top. I added ribbon and other die cut parts and a greeting.

In some case I also personalised with something appropriate for the recipient, such as cats or dogs.

Here Comes Santa Village + Star from Bethlehem Set + Trees from Tim Sizzix Holiday Joy with German Shepherd silhouettes cut by hand.

As above in a bluer colour scheme and square format. No dogs but lovely snowflake ribbon from Hobbycraft.

Cat version in purples using the Bethlehem (SDD192) die set, including the star and palm trees. Cat die from dovecraft. 

Bethlehem set on a far darker, more night-time-ish background effect.

Font used is mainly Concurso Moderne.
