Christmas Banners .....

... Morning all!  Today's the day - Kathryn finishes school mid-day and tonight we fly to the UK to see family and friends!  So excited now.

But I did find some time to play in my craft room yesterday evening and I've a Christmas card to share with you today.  I used a couple of challenges to make it:


Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Nordic Winter, Secret Santa (Chief Elf), Compliments of the Season II
Inks: Distress - Festive Berries, Evergreen Bough
Dies: Die-namics - Fishtail Flags Layers Stax # 2 & 3, Fishtail Flags STAX #2; Spellbinders - Circles Sm (S4-116) #3
Accessories:  SEI DP - Berry Melody; Stampin' Up! - Scalloped Circle Punch; White Lustre Card

This was fun to make.  I picked out three coordinating papers used my Die-namics dies to cut the banners and layered them onto the card.  I stamped the Chief Elf image twice, in green and red punched out the green layer adding some ink to the edges for definition, and used my Spellbinder circle die to cut out the centre.  I adhered the rosette with dimensional tape.  To finish the front I added some elf footprints leading to a simple sentiment.  For the inside I cut a mat layer in another pattern and a white panel on which I stamped a simple sentiment.  Sorry about the quality of the photos, but I had to take them under artificial light!


I have a series of scheduled posts lined up - so do drop by to check them out.  But that's all for now - I'm off to the hairdresser this morning, then it's packing and off to the airport.  See you soon.
