CVC: Christmas

Hello there! Well its my second post for the current challenge at Countryview Challenges this month - its an easy one ... the theme is Christmas ....have you got any last minute makes you can share with us? There's a chance to win  £20 spend in the wonderful shop!!!

Here's my make - the card I made for my lovely mum for Christmas - and I'm glad to be able to report that she loved it!!!


There's quite a lot going on here but basically this is what I did - sorry no step x step today - in the rush to make this I forgot!!!
Firstly I made the poinsettias by cutting them out using tattered poinsettia die. Next I coloured them with candied apple distress ink and used and indigo blu stamp to stamp the words. Then I curled them and layered them up.


Next I made the background using a combination of distress inks, stains and brushos! I stamped the Indigo blu dinkie stamp the arranged it all...


I also added some berries and pine cones....


I hope you like it! There's still a day or two left to enter here

Hugs

  1. Great idea to use the same stamp to make the patterned paper you die-cut your flowers from. And your mother is right, it's a beautiful, classic, Christmas card!
