A very Festive Chrismas

A very afternoon to you all....I hope you are all having a great Bank Holiday Monday:)  We have the typical English weather here....rain,rain and more rain:(
Yikes! I can't believe that it has been over a week since I last blogged:(  I have been busy in my craft room prepping for the Heartfelt Creations September Collection which I will be launching on Create and Craft next Monday....this will be a 4 Day Deal:) You are going to love this collection and I will begin to give you some Sneak peaks on Thursday!...If you love flowers then this will be a great collection for you:)

So here is my card for today using the Festive Christmas Collection (don't forget I will be on Create and Craft tomorrow at 11am and 2pm)  I know many of you may have already made a start on your Christmas projects! It isn't far away now.....this year has just flown by:(

  • For this very festive Christmas card I have used the Festive Notes stamp for the background - you can just about see it underneath the Cosmic Shimmer Iced Crystals.
  • I have stamped the main image in red and added a little Cosmic Shimmer Pearlscent   mica powder. This stamp is the O Little Town. I have die cut the image out using the Spellbinder Standard Circles.
  • The sentiment stamp is from the Dove of Peace stamp.
  • I have layered the elements onto the main card using foam pads.
  • The Poinsettia is the Christmas Poinsettia stamp and the co-ordinating Sun Kissed Fleur die set.
  • The flourishes are from the Sweet Lullaby die set.
  • I have added lot's of the Cosmic Shimmer Iced Crystals to give the card a really festive ice feel:)
Sorry for the rather brief tutorial today....believe it or not I am in the middle of having my dreaded roots done:) Thank goodness my hairdresser works Bank Holidays:)

Take Care x
