One More Christmas Card


Afternoon everyone. I've succumbed to making another Christmas card!  In my defence I have used an adorable Penny Black stamp.  I don't have any decent Christmas flowers then I remembered my new flower corner stamp from the lovely Linda at local company, Oak House Studios.  Its really gorgeous and makes a refreshing change as it reminds me of the Christmas Rose!  I'm entering this into various challenges including Pollycraft.  I had intended to enter Pollycraft challenges with their own images but unfortunately I lost the lost recently when my computer hard drive crashed and died!!  Apparently you don't need their images to enter so this is my first one until I get my stash of their digis built up again!!  The various challenges are:


Creative Inspirations - Christmas Card and Tag Set

Pollycraft - Christmas

Corrosive Challenge Blog - Red and Green




The main Penny Black image has been cut out and stuck down using 3D glue.  The corner flower stamp has been decoupages and the flowers glittered.

RECIPE

Penny Black Stamp - 2517K Sled Ride
Christmas Corner Stamp - \Oak House Studio
Papers - DCWV
Swiss Dots Embossing folder
Coloring Mediums - water colour pencils and copics
Glitter - Art Institute
Ribbon - stash
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards


I'm really pleased with how this one turned out, hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by me blog.


Take care and happy crafting everyone
