Day 12 of Advent

Today has been a very productive day, and I have  managed to make 2 Christmas cards! Yah! The first one is this one
I used the flourish from Tim Holtz's masks which sadly we have sold out of (stocks due back in the New Year, but there are still the others), and I laid it on the card and distress inked around and over it. Then I lifted it and distress on top , so you get a paler version of it. I stamped and red embossed the Father Christmas, and used Thickers letters to make the word. The star fitted perfectly in the middle of the O. A bit of a different style of card. I have made another one but am waiting for the stickles to dry........
Yesterdays winner of the ornament is......
Congratulations and please email me your snail mail address so I can get post it to you.
The blog candy for today is a bottle of Stickles, so same as usual leave a comment or if you are a follower you are in with a chance too!

Gorgeous card Jennie - I've managed to make 20 today - but they are of the 'cheap & cheerful' variety :-) I send out so many I'd spend all year making gorgeous ones like yours!

Lottie said...

What a brilliant idea - and well worth all the effort. Will have a go with my TH flourish.

Thanks for all your inspirational work - how you manage to find the time as well as run a house and business amazes me.
