AAA Cards #54 Silent Night, Holy Night

Hi! I’m here with a post for AAA Cards Game #54 Dec 6 Silent Night, Holy Night.

I made 3 cards for this game, using ink-blending and the emboss resist technique. I also ironed off the embossing powder on this 1-layer card.I took my inspiration from the following photo.

Card #1: Here’s my first, and most CAS, card.


I would like to play this card at CAS on Sunday’s Challenge #73 Stars.

Card #2: Ink blending on the entire card front:Slide3

This 2nd card has a mixture of blues and green. I would like to play this over at Less is More’s Week 253 Colour  Challenge: Green & Blue.

Card #3:Slide5


I would like to play Card #3 at Word Art Wednesday’s Challenge #212: Anything Goes and at ChouxChoux Paper Art’s Vision of Sugarplums Challenge.

I hope that you are inspired to play along. Make sure you stop by AAA Cards and visit all of the design team members blogs.
