Cool Yule

This weeks challenge over at PTW is to make a Christmas card! Yes, about 5 months to Christmas now so the countdown begins for us crafters!!!



I'm so pleased with how this turned out! The image isn't a very traditional Christmas but with the envelope in her hand, it reminded me of writing Xmas cards! Seeing as my copic markers arrived (wooo Hooo) I had to use them! Loving them there's no odour like other markers I've used and have I mentioned that I'm really loving them, and now I'm already addicted to them I will HAVE to get more colours (of course!)

I made the mini Christmas card with nesty and decorated by shrinking the holly that I had coloured with stardust pen before heating (so cute)! There's lots of inking around edges and stuff! creating bit of distressed look!

Materials:
Paper: BG sugared, PM vellum, cream card, DCWV glitter card,
Die's:
Nestabilities squares, Sizzix holly, snowflakes,
Stamps:
Mixed Messages - merry Christmas,make a wish, Sweet Ebony - pen pal, BG - swirls,

Thanks for stopping by, I have made quite a few cards recently but haven't had a great deal of time to upload them, (camera full of baby photo's too!) so bare with me there's more on the way! HuGs Kim x
