Greetings to you all,
I hope you are well on this chilly December day (shush you people in Australia).
When it is so cold outside, the best thing to do is stay in and craft!
Christmas cards have me feeling festive so I thought I would share that feeling with you all today-just before I go and start baking my first batch of Christmas cookies for this year ;)
Beginning with an 8x8 card blank, I distressed a piece of card (slightly smaller than the base card) with Dusty Concord ink and did the same to a piece of card 6x6.
Stamped the fairy christmas tree image (Lavinia Stamps) in Versafine Onyx Black, the 'Wishing you a Magical Christmas' sentiment (Stamps by Chloe) in Versafine Deep Lagoon and the using the spiral of stars and stars 2 stamps (Lavinia Stamps) along with Versafine Imperial Purple and Deep Lagoon, Adirondack Wild Plum and Memento Cottage Ivy-brought some colour and Christmas cheer to the card.
This was then layered on mirror card, some plain silky white ribbon was attached down the left side of the larger piece of card and some pearlescent effect stars ribbon was attached along the bottom of it before it was stuck in the centre of the card blank. The mirror card was layered in the centre(ish) of this and 3 gems put in the top corner to finish off.
I also have done this design in teal and in green:
I may do one in red and one in blue-just to see what they look like!
That's it from me for today, I am going to bake now
So, until next time: Happy crafting :)
