First Card in 2011!
.....and it's a Christmas card! Last year, thanks to Bah! Humbug! I had enough hand made cards despite major house refurbs going on for 6 months so I intend to do even better this year. I've made myself a promise that the insides will be completed at the same time and they will be tucked inside an envelope ready to write out and post - what's more, I'm making them with my list beside me and each one is being assigned to it's recipient and numbered as I make it!
So, to this card. I've used 2 digi paper bps - embossed dots from the earth tones set and a red mottled stone. I was delighted when the Bah! Humbug! theme was holly and or fairies this time because I got to use the pre-coloured holly wreath that I created last year and never got to use myself. I've also 'hung' one of the pre-coloured ornaments from it before overlaying them onto a piece of the embossed dots paper before printing them out. All of these are from Crafty Ann's. The sentiment is a stamp I've had for a long time now and I stamped it onto another piece of embossed dots paper and cut out with a nesties label die. I've simply finished it off with some border peel offs and homemade red & gold mirri card 'brads'.
It feels good to have got my first card under my belt and I'm entering it into these challenges:
