Christmas Already

Good afternoon all, I've another card to share with you today which I've made for my first ever entry to Papercraft Star which is challenge 16 and a sketch by Beth Moore as below:
As I'm trying to get ahead on my Christmas cards this year rather than as usual start panicking at the beginning of December, I decided to make one to add to my collection.
I couldn't resist using this really cute Penny Black stamp called Let's Play and stamped it on ecru card with VersaFine Toffee ink. I added a mat of gold textured card.
I then followed the sketch design with some coordinating papers from the Papermania Classic Christmas collection and inked all the edges with VersaColor Evergreen ink before sticking them to the card blank.
I assembled the card with some homespun wired cross stitch border fabric and some gorgeous reindeer ribbon. The greeting is by Stamp-It and was stamped Memento Bamboo Leaves.
Thanks for looking.

  1. Hi Fliss

    You and I too, how nice it would be to get to December and been all organised ready for the off.

    I have almost finished one order for 80 Christmas cards, so am into the swing, but somehow my own are always left wanting. I guess we are all the same.

    A super one here, that PB stamp is so elegant.
