Woohoo! Bev’s made a start on her Christmas cards lol – here’s my first. I don’t know if this sweet image by Penny Johnson for Stampavie that you can get here was intended as a Christmas image but it works for me. I have not even used Christmas papers but think I can get away with it as most of them are covered up by embellies (well it wouldn’t be one of my cards if I hadn’t smothered it in the deliciousness of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers now would it?)
I have used Basic Grey Capella papers again (the pad was still out on my desk from the weekend), and have coloured the image with distress inks. The punched border was done by using just the corner punch off the ATP set. Love the effect. I have stitched around the papers after distressing then applied Stickles for a lil bit of bling. The flowers I used are 15mm and 20mm roses that I have spritzed with Glimmer Mist that I mixed up myself to get the colour to match the card – unfortunately it don’t look good in the pictures but is a perfect match in real life. The sentiment is from an old Anna Griffin set that I got from QVC.
That’s all from me today, don’t forget to enter my candy draw if you haven’t done so – the link is in my side bar.
Thanks so much for stopping by today,
