A Christmas First

I have made my first Christmas card, well it is August so we are more than half way through the year. It is quite a simple card, but it takes a while to get my christmas ideas going.

The base card is Kraft card which I have embossed with a folder. Then I have added some layers of patterned papers matted with red. A cute Santa topper is the main image. Finished off with a die cut greeting and lots of die cut Holly and Ivy leaves in copper and gold mirror card.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges
Winter Wonderland - Xmas Carol or Song
MAWTT - Snow in Summer
ABC Christmas - Quantum Leap d/die cuts
Crafting by Design - Ready for Christmas

Stampin' Up

I have been a very bad blogger recently and not been on here for a while. Well I'm feeling a bit more with it for now so I'll try and do more.

I have been playing with some new stuff recently and this card has been made with Stampin' Up products. There range with al-sorts of stuff and it is all colour co-ordinating, which can make it a bit easier but it is a very new sort of card making style for me.

I've used By the Sea stamps and inks and papers from the new in colours.
