The Artistic Stamper has a challenge to use HOT COLOURS.

I needed to start on my Christmas cards, so this is what I made.

Its a very quick and simple card.

Distress Stain Wild Honey over white card.Then swiped Wild Honey distress ink direct to paper at random and around edge of card.
Stamps are from my favourite Darkroom Door 'Christmas Reindeer' set.
The Reindeer and words inked with Barn Door distress ink.
'PEACE' was stamped on white card,cut out and adhered with foam tape. The other two words were stamped direct to card.
Gold Kindy Glitz for the antlers.The black card base make the colours even more vivid.

I think I will be making a few of these simple Christmas cards for people who are likely to throw it away!

Distress Stains make it so quick.


  1. Great card, Shirley, I love the intensity of the "hot" colours :)

  2. Great card Shirley, love the glittery antlers! The distress stain background looks fab! Thanks for joining The Artistic Stamper challenge!

  3. Thanks for reminding me about Christmas Shirely! NOT! LOL. Love the colours you have used, very Aussie. A nice design for those who aren't inclined to "hang onto" their cards. Of course its a different story for our crafty friends, is it not?!

  4. Great card! I love the reindeer. I'm glad I'm not the only one with "Tier 1" and "Tier 2" Christmas card lists...

  5. Well done on starting your christmas cards, and thanks for playing along with us @ The Artistic Stamper challenge x

  6. Great Christmas card! What, people throw cards away? Surely not! LOL ;) Thanks for playing at The Artistic Stamper this month.
