Well, today I have made my first Christmas card of 2011. I can't believe that I have actually made a Christmas card and it's only August - I am usually flying around in a panic trying to get them started in December so I think this determination to "play" every day definitely has advantages - one down, goodness only knows how many to go.
And here it is - a bright card in what my hubbie considers to be "proper" Christmas colours.
For those of you who have been following my blog, you will know that the image in one from Flowersoft's Moments in Time series. This one is "Let it Snow". I finished the colouring yesterday but didn't have time to update my blog.
The base card is 190mm square and I have covered the front of it with snow white centura pearl paper which I embossed with a Spellbinders snowflake impressability, although it doesn't show up too well on the photograph. I have used Stardream red card and paper, and the holly paper is from Crafter's Companion Vintage Xmas cd, with a light sprinkling of iridescent spray and sparkle on it (which doesn't show up well on the photograph either.) I used a Christmas words embossing folder on the two red squares and finished the card with a poinsetta and some card candy.
So now that I have started on them I have no excuse this year for running round like a headless chicken in December! Instead I will be running round like a headless chicken trying to make the inserts for them all, once I decide which ones go to who!!!
Thank you for visiting my blog.
