Welcome to the first Sunday in December!

Morning all,

Oh My Gosh! The first Sunday in DECEMBER!!! What happened to the rest of 2016? Who THOUGHT they had loads of time to make their Christmas cards and are now just realising it's running out!!!

Today sees the launch of Kylie's "TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS" blog hop which will run from today until the 15th, I hope you will visit the blogs of each of the people involved and may gain inspiration for your own Christmas projects.

I made a Christmas card for this ... using the ultimate CAS challenge .. a ONE LAYER CARD!

My card

The inside of my card and reverse of my envelope

The front and back of my card - the MISTI is so handy for this
Materials used:-
  • White C6/A2, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Rubbernecker tree image stamped using (my MISTI and) Delicata golden glitz ink
  • Inkadinkado sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
