Christmas Wishes ....

.... Good morning!  It's the last day of our long holiday weekend, we've all had a really good time.  It's been mostly lazy, but I've also had time to play in my craft room.  I've another Christmas card to share with you this morning:

Stamps: Uniko - Essentially Christmas, Balloon Bash; Waltzingmouse - Tis the Season
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Kaleidacolor - Blue Breeze
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! Card - Tempting Turquoise; Gloss Card; Clear Embossing Powder; Pearlescent Embossing Paste; SU Punch - Christmas Ornament (discontinued)


Yesterday I shared a couple of cards that I'd made using some brayered gloss card - I had a bit left over, so I punched out three Christmas Ornaments.  I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch! - CTS#150 for the layout and, as I've used some left over stash, I'm also playing along with Jingle Belles - JB:15:24 where the team want us to create a card with left over bits.  Finally, as the colours here are white, blue with textured snowflakes, I'm playing along with Merry Monday - MM#181 - I've managed two cards this week!

I turned the sketch to make a landscape card and stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black and heat embossed it with clear powder.  I ran the ornaments through my Xyron to make them self-adhesive and attached them to the front of the card.  I added string to them and finished with some fancy bows.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of turquoise card.  On the white panel I added a simple Christmas sentiment and a few blue stars.

Today I'm off to the regular monthly meeting of the Scrappy Chic Kitchen Roll Sprayers club - where we get to work on our art journals.  It's the perfect way to bring this weekend to a close.  I hope that all my American friends have enjoyed the holiday weekend.  Be safe and see you soon.
