I want to share a card with you which is not made by myself, but by a talented cardmaker, Margaret Edgar. She sent me this card years ago, and it impressed me so much, I put it in my box of special things. I just thought it captured the spirit of Christmas perfectly. With a couple of little trees etc from the Village set and a Denim inkpad. Simply beautiful. The message stamp isn’t even a Claritystamp, but so what!
In my humble opinion, it just doesn’t get much lovelier than that.
See how Margaret used the trunk of the tree to build the fence?
And how perfectly she allowed the fence to fade away into the snow?
The clouds, hills and snow were all done the same way, with torn paper, a make-up sponge and Denim Adirondack.
But what perfect composition, don’t you agree?
So whilst pondering what to show on this Thursday’s Blue blog, I remembered the perfect blue card from Margaret, which I had stored away in my precious box years ago.
So Margaret, if you are reading this, now you know what happened to your handmade Christmas card; I fell in love with it. A veritable masterpiece. And I think I will just put it back on top of the piano again this year.
