Another Chrissy card for my growing pile ! I can`t afford any more new stamps for Christmas now so I`ve had to have a rummage through last years stamps for my cards. This one is from LOTV, I love these images and I am certainly getting my money`s worth from them, this one is a favourite lovely tradtional image.
I`ve coloured with distress inks and added a bit of glitter for sparkle and some Glossy accents to the glass in the lamp but I don`t think it shows up in the photo.
I`d like to enter this into the Allsorts Challenge this time around they`d like to see a Christmas Easel.
The papers are Bo Bunny from the Dec 25th collection - 12" Noel cuts and festive, Martha Stewart punches eyelet lace and holly and the berries are off Christmas crackers that I`ve collected over the years !!
The background stamp is Magnolia - Silent Night availabel from Sir Stampalot. I tried to give it an aged look by distressing the edges and inking with antique linen distress ink.
The postcard is from Molly Blooms, also available from Sir Stampalot. I went to town on this card didn`t I ? I think I threw everything at it, punches, paper, ribbon, flowers, berries, braid, pearls ! I get a bit carried away at Christmas ! LOL !
In case it`s not apparant from the first photo, it is an easel card! Here is a side view. Is it just me or are easels hard to photograph, they always look flat in the piccies !
Anyway, I`m off to have a rest, I had a tooth out on Monday and had to have stitches and I am in quite a bit of pain with it, I always have a bad reaction to the injections and I feel a bit woozy for a while afterwards, ( I`m a bit of a wuss when it comes to the dentist ! )LOL !
Thanks for looking in, bye for now and Happy Crafting xxx
