A Very Fawny Holiday Week - Day 5

what a wonderful week on holiday inspiration at the Lawn Fawn Blog!

today is the last day of the Very Fawny Holiday Week, and i am on the Lawn Fawn blog again with a super sweet watercolor Christmas card!

i stamped the trees from Let it Snow onto some watercolor paper and then added some green color with distress inks and water! there are 3 shades of green on the trees. then i heat embossed some of the snow/stars background in white and added the sky!

i LOVE how the sky turned out! i used worn lipstick (my new favorite distress ink for watercoloring skies!) and squeezed lemonade! i LOVE the orange they create when mixed together with water! 

i also added some snow hills with the stitched hillside borders die!

so that's it! i'm totally humbled to have been featured on the blog throughout the week alongside the incredible other projects by the whole Lawn Fawn family! 

i'm totally ready to knock out my Christmas cards, how about you? do you make your Christmas cards? do you make individual cards, or one or two designs mass produced? this will probably not surprise you...i make each one different! ha! more work, but so fun!
