Rustic Christmas

Hello Everyone!
Привет всем!

Last night the first snowfall happened in Moscow. And somehow I'm not glad about it, I would prefer the gorgeous Fall to go on. However, my cards are dedicated to Christmas and New Year already. People have invented the brightest decorations for the darkest period of a year. Today I'll share a new Christmas card.

Прошлой ночью был первый снегопад в Москве. А как-то я совсем не рада первому снегу, хочу чтобы осень не кончалась. Но вот открытки получаются уже только новогодние. Не зря люди веками изобретали самые яркие украшения для самого мрачного времени года. Сегодня покажу только одну новую открытку:

My card was inspired by the wonderful card of Karin made for Waltzingmouse Pajama Party last week. I loved the idea of solid stamping on a vellum and overlaying with it the patterned paper.

Вдохновением для меня послужила очень красивая и простая открытка от Karin, которую она сделала для Waltzingmouse Pajama Party на прошлой неделе. Мне очень понравилась идея горячего тиснения на кальке, покрывающей бумагу с узором.

I'm entering this card to one of my favourite challenges - Addicted to CAS #50, because the code word this week is

Я подаю эту открытку в конкурс Addicted to CAS #50, потому что ключевое слово на этой неделе Калька.

I'm also linking this card up to STAMPlorations October Challenge, because the theme is

Также я выставляю свою работу в конкурс STAMPlorations October Challenge, потому что он посвящен тиснению.

I don't have any of STAMPlorations stamps, but I would be glad to win one. And I'm submitting this card to Allsorts Challenge also inviting us to use EMBOSSING and offering a 12 per cent discount at Flonz stamps to challenge participants!
У меня нет штампов от STAMPlorations, но участвовать можно всем, и я была бы рада выиграть первый штамп от STAMPlorations. И еще я подаю свою открытку в новый для меня конкурс Allsorts Challenge, где опять тема тиснения, и предлагающий 12% скидку всем участникам в магазине Flonz stamps!

Thanks a lot for stopping by!
Спасибо, что заглянули!

  1. The reindeer looks so good stamped on the vellum, and the patterned paper you've chosen is just right for the card. Karen x

    1. Thank you, Karen. Glad to know people like it, because I rarely use patterned paper, this is not my comfort zone :)

  2. This is a fantastic card. I love your background paper, and how you stamped your reindeer on vellum. I cannot believe you already have snow and winter. I am running my air conditioner here in San Diego.

    1. Thank you, Joyce! It's a bit early snowing even for Moscow, usually the first wet snow is here about 5-7th November. We jumped over the rainy Fall part right into windy November weather. I wish I needed an air conditioner instead of the heating :)

  3. Люблю добавление velum на открытках! Весёлая открытка получилась :)

  4. Great design. Love the red and white embossing on the vellum ... really beautiful. And the vellum gives a soft look to the bright patterned paper background. Thanks for joining us at ATCAS.

    1. Thank you, Loll. Exactly, I wanted to mute this bright pattern with the vellum. Your vellum snowman is so cool! Thank you for inspiration!

  5. Two gr eat Christmas cards, thanks for for sharing your lovely work with us at Allsorts challenge.

  6. I love this CAS card. Your heat embossing is beautiful and the PP fits the style of the stamps so well. Thanks for joining us at STAMPlorations this month.

  7. Great card .....loving the negative stamping on the vellum, it's so effective. As is the way you've managed to mute the tones of the designer paper. Thanks for playing along at ATCAS.
