Winter Woods Batch Cardmaking

I was a bit short of Christmas cards so
had to have a go at some quick and easy ones that I
could batch make and that would post flat!

I spent an absolutely fortune at the post office!!
When did second class stamps get so flippin' expensive!

Anyway, rant over 😂
I used winter woods stamp set for the trees
and stamped them in memento
 over my inked up sky using pacific point ink pad.
I add some Frost White paint along the edge and
flicked some over the sky.

I had initially masked off the area, top and bottom,
 to get a nice clean design.
The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.
I made the mask so I could slip my cards inside it easily
to allow me to repeat the process quickly.
I have a video in my VIP Group showing how I did it.
Was pretty pleased to get half a dozen done in no time.

I would like to enter this into
It is extremely wet and windy outside today
but I have loads of  crafty orders to get sorted
so I will be kept warm and busy!
Have a great weekend everyone!

And they are going up again in the New Year Pinky, I read the other day an extra .9p, that's exorbitant to my mind. I got all mine stamped up yesterday and it came to almost £50 with the overseas ones.

Back to your card and there's lovely depth with the shades of blue and second generation stamping. Many thanks for joining us at Allsorts challenge this week.

Stunning! I love this beautiful design Pinky.
I know exactly what you mean about the postage- no wonder lots of people don't bother sending cards any more.

Love the blues and the trees. It's a beautiful card.

I know all about the fees of mailing. Yikes! But oh how I love to send them. [Bunny]

What a lovely scene, I love how you made the scene into a panel. Beautiful card. I buy a book of second class stamps now and them throughout the year, then when Christmas comes I don't need to buy any. I know I don't spend any less, but then when Christmas comes I don't get a shock buying them all at once. x

Regarding stamps I nearly dropped when she told me the price of the stamps when Iposted mine and they are going up again! Think there will be less cards posted next year so by putting them up people will post less-ridiculous.Love your fabulous card and the beautiful stamped trees
