This is another Christmas card I`ve got made with my new Christmas Friends stamps from Penny Black.
I`ve coloured with distress inks and added stickles-diamond to highlight the snow and perlen-pen platinum for the little snowflakes.
The shape of the card is made using Go Kreate die 6" x 6" frame Pointy #3 the backing paper is Fancy Pants Holly Jolly.
I couldn`t find a round sentiment I liked and this one is from Magnolia but has a large solidly coloured Holly in the centre so I just covered it with part of the image selectively stamped onto a circle and raised it up on foam pads.
The circle is cut out from nesties on Tim Holtz coredinations - broken china which distresses brilliantly, I`ve just put it through swiss dots embossing folder and given it a light sand to bring out the little dots like snowflakes. The punch is ash branch and the little snowflake is from a pack my Mum put in my Chrissy stocking last year ! she`s always finding me little crafty bits and pieces bless her !
I`m off to take advantage of this glorious Indian Summer we are having here at the moment and I`m going to get some gardening done and wash my car !
Thanks for looking in, bye for now and happy crafting xxx
