This card is for:-
1. Creative Inspirations - challenge 18 - Christmas in October
2. Saturday Spotlight With Hidden Potential - week 2 - Dress up a tree
I thought i'd do something different today, instead of my usual cuties. My ex-employers still keep in touch with me and I always send them a card at Christmas, they always send a Marks and Spencers luxury card,and last year was my first year of handmade cards but I've come a long way since then. So this is what i've made them and I think it's just their style.
I have seen this done before here at Iona-Rose designs, also seen this on Joanna sheens web site too.
The image was in a candy from the lovely Brenda (where did it come from? Brenda) and when I saw it I thought what on earth will I do with this image, I think I have another and I will do the dreaded In-Laws the same card.
Thank you Brenda your image has made me try something new.
I used Papermania's A Wonderful Christmas Time (kindly given to me by my daughter, thank you Jodie). I do know the stamp is Penny Black (will have to search that stamp, would like to have it). Then I put Papermania gems on my tree and used some free ribbons and bows from the Creativity magazine. The sentiment is a Dovecraft and done with clear embossing power. And everything is matted on gold card.
