A Christmas Card

Hello, I hope you're all having a good week.

I know you've probably had enough of Christmas, but I've started on this years cards already.  I've been inspired by Heather Telford of 'Bits & Pieces'.  An extremely talented lady.  You can visit her blog here.

This is my first attempt at making this type of card, but I really enjoyed playing with ink and will definitely be playing a lot more.  My wonderful husband bought me several Penny Black stamps for Christmas after listening to me witter on about how wonderful Heather's work is.

I've used 'Berry Red, Snow White' stamp by Penny Black.  The background was created using Stormy Sky DI and a mask.  I added a little Star Dust Stickles to the snow banks and Martha Stewart Garnet glitter to the berries.  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley (one of my Christmas presents from my Secret Santa)  Thank you to my Secret Santa (I know who you are!!)p0----p-----0(Milo typed this last bit!!)

So here it is...


I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  31. You are so organised Caz!!
    I need to take a leaf out of your book and start early and then maybe I'll have more than 3 cards made for Christmas 2013!
    I love this style of card, love it very much and I'm totally useless at making them, but I do keep trying.
    It's absolutely beautiful, the pop of red for the berries is perfect.
