Uniko Challenge - #44 Christmas

It's time for a new challenge over at Uniko. And it's such an obvious and really useful theme - CHRISTMAS. No excuses not to get your Christmas card stash enlarged then!

I seem to be forever using non-traditional colours on my cards this year and today's is all about the chill of Christmas and uses blues and white.

I used the newly released polka dot stencil and some very old chalky white ink lurking in my stash to create a bit of a snow storm on some dark blue card. I stamped the Uniko rustic tree in dark blue and hand cut it before popping it up on pads for dimension.

The greeting was stamped on top of the die cut snowy hill to finish off my card.

Stamps: Uniko, Rustic Christmas
Inks: SU, night of navy; VersaMagic, chalk white
Die: MFT Die-namics, stitched basic edges
Stencil: Uniko, scattered polka dots

So over to you now.  If you're still needing more Christmas inspiration go and check out the Uniko DT creations HERE and then get crafting and linking up. Looking forward to seeing what you make!

Thanks for your time today, it was fun having you drop by my blog.  And keep crafting!
