Just a couple of Christmas cards

Hi, just popping by to share a couple of Christmas cards I made using the Uniko Snowflake stencil I used here, that fit with a few current challenges. I loved the pinky purple version but these use a more traditional colour scheme. I needed a few rather quickly for my craft class ladies but the colour and lack of embellishments makes them suitable for blokes too!

I used the same technique, a base colour then using a finger dauber to add the darker blues to the pattern before die cutting the letters from Altenew's Bold Alphabet dies and a few silver IO die cut snowflakes that were leftover from another project. 

The negative panel was laid over some sparkly silver glitter paper on a mid blue base card and the letters were popped up on foam die cuts and added to a midnight blue base card. 

I even had another panel of stencilled snowflakes left to make another couple of cards!
