For Jonathan ....

.... a very special Christmas card.  I've used the sketch from this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #28 - which is running until early January.  So, as this is a scheduled post, I'll link to the challenge as soon as I can.  It's a great sketch.


I made an A5 card for Jonathan.  As the base card I've used some lovely card by Kanban - it's got a subtle shimmer which doesn't really come through on the picture.  I've gone for traditional Christmas colours - red and green.  The envelope flap features a mixture of snowflakes - from Waltzingmouse Stamps and Stampin' Up!.



Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Seasons of Love; Say It With Style; Stampin' Up! - Serene Snowflakes
Inks: Memento - Lady Bug, Cottage Ivy, Pear Tree, Bamboo Leaves;  Distress - Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Barn Door
Spellbinders:  Plain and Scalloped hearts
Accessories:  Martha Stewart punch; Ribbon from stash

See you tomorrow.

The scalloped edging is lovely both on the heart & the envelope flap - the background stamping there brilliant too with those greens.
