May your Christmas...

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

WOW Saturday again, and a month today will be Christmas day!
I still have a few more of these cards to make too!  How are you getting on with yours?

Over on my website I have an offer of 10% discount using the code BLFRIDAY17.
The offer closes on Thursday 30th November at midnight.

Today a contemporary Christmas card using the Faith, Joy, Family stamp set by Stamps by Me.


Step by Step

1. White DL base card.
2. Matted and layered black card.
3. To create the background I used distress oxides peacock feathers, worn lipstick and wild honey.
4. I then stamped the tree and sentiment with Archival Ink and the laminate part of the stamp with red Versafine.
5. To finish off I added pink pearl gems.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Craft Rocket #43 - Christmas is Coming
Crafting with an Attitude #33 - Anything Goes
Crafting with Friends #55 - Anything Goes
Daring Cardmakers - Trim the Tree
Simply Papercraft #53 - Anything Goes

Happy Crafting!
