Merry Christmas 25/12/2013

Merry ChristmasMerry Christmas to you all 🙂

This is a card I made for a colleague at work, which I thought would make an appropriate post for today.  I also made it in a different colourway for my parents (green and gold), but forgot to take a photo of that one!

It’s an 8×8 card layered up with silver mirri board and white card.  The base layer is a silver and white polka dot design from Hunkydory and then the centre background piece has been embossed using a holly design A4 embossing folder.  My spellbinders have been used quite a bit on this, as you can see, creating the surround and the decoration.

The bauble (or booble – as my mother calls them 😀 ) has been cut out twice and using foam pads, made into a shaker section which I put some “snow” and “ice” into, which reveals the message behind – which I did on the computer.  I used white glitter card for the pine leaves, which looks quite effective in reality.  Then I added a triple bow and a very blingy gem.

Unfortunately I do have to work today, so I shall bid you all a Merry Christmas, and will hopefully be back again soon xxx

Thanks for stopping by

Good Evening All

Well as usual I’m dashing about again, so apologies but this will be brief.

The card and design papers are all from “Stampin Up” and I’ve used this week’s Mojo Monday Challenge for the layout.

The image is a stamp from a set from Creative Expressions and I’ve embossed it and then coloured in with Spectrum Noirs.

A couple of hat pins have been added along with the bow and the pearls, coz I thought it looked a bit plain!

Anyway I’m afraid I’ve gotta go, but I shall try to be back again soon 🙂
