Monochrome Christmas – Woodware Blog


Hi Everyone


Well today is the new weekly challenge over at Woodware
Craftrange have set the theme of monochrome Christmas and if you take a daily look at the Woodware Blog you will see a different sample with this theme for the whole week.

I have chosen black and white (always a favourite) I have to be honest and say that I set of to do mahogany but black and white won.
I Have kept it simple but hopefully you will agree affective, the background stamp used is
WOODWARE MANY CHRISTMASES CLEAR MAGIC, designed by Jane Gill who is a much-loved favourite at Craftrange she is one lovely lady and talented to go with it.
The main stamp used is quite detailed and simply delightful, you can really set yourself in the scene and imagine snow all around. (Hope we get plenty of snow this Christmas!!) This stamp is by STAMPENDOUS and called TRAIN POSTCARD.

Both have been stamped with Black Versafine, I choose this ink because it really brings out the detail without blurring any of the image especially in the train stamp as it is detailed and I did not want to lose any of that.

Stamped on our specialist 300gsm ultra smooth cardstock and matted with black gloss card onto an 8″ x 8″ card. The edges of the background christmas wording have been distressed with black and the train postcard has been stamped out 3 times to raise the image
First stamped image – as a whole
Second stamped image – cutting the main image away, just raising the postcard and
Third stamped image – cutting only the holly out to 3D this and make the card complete.

Handy Tip when you are stamping the background, cut the card to size and stamp around the edges starting of in the top left corner and working round. This will create a gap in the middle (shown below) but this will be covered. Stamping it in this way gives you crisp lines of text instead of trying to line up the text and have it become uneven. I did choose what text would be showing around the edge and turned the stamp round to fit in with what wording I wanted showing.

Hope you can pop over to Woodware for a look and hopefully join in. If you would like any of the stamps/materials used to create this card please email me on janet@mtoms.com or give us a ring on Tel…01282 833 091.
