2nd post - challenge entry!

Hi folks,

Decided to have a crack at the "Something Old and Something New" challenge over on Craft Mad & Loving It and came up with a Christmas card.

Materials used:
  • 6" square white scalloped card (300gsm) and envelope
  • Black card with corners rounded (OLD)
  • Red paper (5" square) given the Martha Stewart PATP treatment (donated by a pal in 2009)
  • Die cut green pearlised paper (from an OLD QSV TSV)
  • Inkadinkado Santa image inked in memento tuxedo black on to white card and die cut in to a circle
  • Image coloured using pro markers and edged with a Poppy pro marker
  • CuddlyBuddly sentiment inked in memento tuxedo black and cut out (NEW)
  • Crystal stickles, wet and dry glue and dimensional foam pads

And the co-ordinating envelope .........

Hope you like it, I'm off to have some lunch now - hope you are having a good day. BTW - hubby hasn't yet come home from his flying day despite it being really rather windy and with occasional showers - now THAT'S devotion to a hobby!!!

Glad you have had a wonderful birthday weekend Kathy. Meal sounds srumptious and gifts are positively perfect too. Love this card a lot. Really like the envelope which at first glance I thought was a CAS card - lol - I think it would work. Have a lovely Sunday eve. What are you reading now on your purple kindle of literature. Hugs Cherry XXX

Hi Kathy, Thank you for the welcome and I must agreed, those easels are really posh, I hadn't notice after admiring your butterfly card - I must nip down to Ikea's & get some. Love the santa - he's so cute. Jeanette
