Shabby Christmas Card - Santa's Wish

I have so enjoyed making this selection of cards with chalk paints, chipboard pieces and die-cut card. Others can be found by scrolling back (or clicking Reindeer Wish or Snowflake Noel) and you will see completely different designs but more or less the same technique to make them.

The backgrounds are painted with the DecoArt media acrylics ......

..... and the white is chalky finish paint stippled over. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz die.

I die cut an easel from mountboard using the Tim Holtz die and added it to the back to give it the support it needs to stand up.

My wish for Christmas is for a peaceful world where people live happily and in harmony together.

Only three more sleeps.

As you can see Brenda I am way behind with commenting - I had a look through your previous posts and have to say that these cards are fabulous - such wonderful snowy texture! I am guessing that they sold well! While I am here may I wish you very Happy Christmas and a wonderful year to come! Hugs, Chrisx
