A CASE for Christmas…

Feeling quite under the weather… but when I received a beautiful Christmas Card in the mail from Michelle Zindorf, I just had to figure out how to replicate it!  I added embossed words, and simplified by removing a layer or two… but the idea was Michelle’s. 

My two versions of the card are shown below… One with snow, one without.  Not sure which one I prefer… and you?

The ‘snow’ was added with a white signo gel pen.  Both cards were made using Michelle’s infamous brayer techniques and sponging, and the “trendy trees” & “four the holidays” stamp set. 

Michelle will be my guest in Jacksonville, Fl. in February 2009 as she teaches both beginner and advanced brayer workshops.  I am so looking forward to her visit.  All classes are filled… and a waiting list has been started.  You can find out more about Michelle’s fabulous brayer workshops (and see her beautiful work & tutorials) on her blog:  zindorf.blogs

Pin It!

Love it! But then I love everything that MZ does and everything inspired by her.

If you really care - I like the snow one best. But only just a little better because both of these cards are FABULOUS!

Hi Ellen.. you're so sweet to post on my blog through my yucky illness!! I do care... and sometimes wonder if I'm out of focus and contact so have to ask. PS I liked the snow one better too!

Sharon, first of all hope you're feeling better..... hate having anything wrong at this time of year so know how you must feel! I absolutely love both cards but the one with the snow is for me the nicest! Love Michelle's work and your replication, is so cool...... thanks for inspiration.

I really quite like the one with the snow better. The other one just looks a little too plain. You did a wonderful job capturing the tree and all of the light effects. I am going to have to try this just as soon as I get some spare time. Have a wonderful day.
