I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

First Christmas Card of 2014


My plan this year is to make 1 Christmas card every week (and the envelope LOL) so that I don't have the manic rush in December like I had last year.  This is my first one.

I used sentiment from Die'sire Christmas Magic Sentimentals which I coloured with three shades of blue markers.  The paper is from Winter Frost DSP pack with a white card border punched using Scallop Trim Border Punch.  3 gems to finish.

This card fits this week's challenge on WINTER WONDERLAND which is Monochrome.

Card Size:-
4.25" x 6.25"
Stamp:-
Die'sire Christmas Magic Sentimentals from CRAFTERS COMPANION
Marker colours:-
Marina Mist, Pool Party & Soft Sky from STAMPIN UP
Paper:-
Winter Frost DSP from STAMPIN UP
Tools:-
Scallop Trim Border Punch from STAMPIN UP
Others:-
Gems from stash
