Art Deco Christmas

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you all today? I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I am off to Maria's workshop in Preston today, it will be good to catch up with my friends.

I have been recycling old cards and calendars for some of my cards.

This card is made from my Art Deco calendar from last year.

Step by Step

1. A5 white card base.
2. Matted and layered gold pearlescent card and lilac Christmas paper from Creative Expressions Christmas pad designed by Lisa Horton.
3. Matted and layered image onto purple pearlescent card.
4. Stamped the Christmas sentiment with DI wilted violet.
5. To finish off added gold star to top of tree and gold snowflakes.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments #184 - Christmas in July
Creative Moments #122 - AG/Christmas
Lil Red Wagon #403 - Christmas in July
Merry Christmas Challenge #26 - Patterned Paper
Crafting from the Heart #168 - Always Anything Goes

Many thanks for visiting today!

  12. This is just so elegant, Linda! Loving her gown and the gold snowflake embellies. It's a good thing I worked ahead on all my DT commitments because I've been gone so much and without any internet connection that regular daily visits are impossible until September rolls around. Nevertheless, today I got caught up on all your posts over the last week or so even if I didn't have time to post comments individually on each one. I love your work, as you know. :-D
