Krafty Christmas ....

... Hi again - I've had a super morning and my new hairdresser, Jessie, is just brilliant.  So, so pleased with my cut and colour.  I've even managed to make another card today - another Christmas card.  I've used:



Stamps:  Stampin' Up! - Lovely as a Tree; Waltzingmouse - Compliments of the Season
Inks:  SU - Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Spellbinders: Grommet Tags (S4-322)
Accessories:  SU Card - Crumb Cake; WMS - Twine; Glitter and card from stash


This is one of the quickest cards I've made recently.  As soon as I saw the Retro Sketch, I knew which stamp I was using.  I've been wanting these super trees from Stampin' Up! for ages, but only got them a couple of weeks ago.  I think they'll be seen again!  I cut a piece of kraft card, shaped the corners then, using my stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped the trees.  I added some glitter to the trees and ground to suggest a soft layer of snow.  I also gently rubbed some Whisper White pigment ink onto the edges of the card.  I finished off with this clean and simple label; while still in the die I added a touch of colour with a stipple brush and stamped the sentiment.  I attached the label with twine and mounted the whole image onto the card base with dimensional tape.

Before I go, I'd like to welcome a couple of new followers, Hello and Welcome to Therese and Shea Marshall - so pleased you joined me.  And that really is all for today.  See you soon.

Fabulous card Deb. The image of the trees you used is one that I have ALWAYS loved, but never bought. (don't know why) I love the look you achieved with your glitter accents...it makes the trees just sing with Christmas cheer. Awesome job.
