Hello and welcome, it’s Karen here again today. I’ve got a Christmas card to share today that was made with a new stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs called “The Nutcracker”. Those dancing mice are just so sweet and the look on the Nutcracker is priceless!
I started by creating the background. On yellow cardstock, I used the Captivating Mandala stencil from My Favourite Things and blended on some Distress Oxide ink in Worn Lipstick and Dried Marigold. I added a layer of vellum over top of this as I felt the stencilling was too distracting behind the images and the vellum softened it a little bit.

Hello everyone, it's Karen here today. I was totally inspired by Jennifer McGuire’s recent video on making simple pendulum cards. It was sheer genius and the minute I saw it, I thought about using her technique with Gerda Steiner's pigeons. If you haven’t seen Jennifer’s video, here’s a link to it - Cards with Simple Movement.
Now, I know this is not your typical wedding card, but it is a fun...
