I got the HOTP design papers free with a UK craft magazine (can't remember which one) and I found this gorgeous scroll paper in the stack - perfect for this challenge. I cut a mat in Gumball Green, adhered the scroll paper and attached them both to the Crumb Cake card base. I cut a smaller panel in Crumb Cake card and randomly stamped snowflakes in Crumb Cake ink to give a subtle tone-on-tone effect. I stamped the Christmas tree in Versafine, heat embossed with clear powder, cut out with the Pennant die and used my aquabrush to paint on Red Riding Hood in the scroll. I cut the lovely border in Gumball Green attached it to the SU design paper, cut it to fit the card and then rounded the top corners. I finished off with a simple sentiment (fabulous font).
For the inside I cut another piece of the scroll design paper onto which I layered some cream lustre card. I stamped the sentiment in Riding Hood Red - love the scroll detail which goes so well with the scroll design paper.
I'm having lots of fun finishing off my Christmas cards - only nine left to go. Then I need to make several birthday cards - I think I may have mentioned that January has lots of family birthdays.
That's all for now. It's a busy week - a couple of my friends are going back to the UK for Christmas and we're getting together for a girls lunch before they go. And today I'm off to school for lunch duties. It's a really good way to get to meet some of Kathryn's friends - they even come and talk to me now! See you soon.
