Christmas in Germany

Hello Everyone,

I got loads of page views for my last post, so welcome along if you are a new visitor!
This card is another of the samples for German TV, using the letter box set and a remountable set of Christmas stamps. This is one of my favourite miniatures sets, I love the spruce tree and the little snowman.  It is amazing how such little stamps can make such a large scene.


I stamped the boxes for the letters first, then stamped in the letters - being very careful to get them right, as I don't really speak much German.  I then masked the whole word
(which means Christmas)
I stamped the snowflake above the word and the tree underneath.
I shaded lightly along the top and bottom of the letters in black and shaded round the whole picture in blue.
Stamp Father Christmas and his sleigh in place and add the greeting which is part of another German greeting set (Best wishes for).
I added some glitter on the trees and along the top of the letters.
Hope you like it,
Thanks for visiting xxx
