Christmas Card Club #16 Lots of Layers & loads of photo's ...
Hello lovely friends and visitors, I hope you’re having a lovely weekend. Before I get to the why, what and such I wanted to thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I’ve not visited much recently, usual issue, I know you get and forgive that, however many of you leave lovely comments on every creation, cheering me on all the time, so much more than I deserve but thank you! I’m a lot freer with how, what and why because of you. I’m no longer worried about if others ‘like’ what I’m creating. I’m more comfortable with colours, trying different styles, and, it is fair to say, that I’m not bored creatively either lol!
Back to the crafty stuff it was
choice to pick the challenge and she wanted to see lots of layers, errm, that’s
something I avoid when creating Christmas cards these days and I wasn’t sure I
was going to be able to do it. However I
saw a comment, either on a blog or Facebook, the comment was along the lines of
‘it’s only so many Friday’s or weeks’ before Christmas Day/week! Well that totally freaked me out and I made a
conscious decision to start creating the special (family and friends) Christmas
cards. This is going to be hand
delivered so I was free to add as many and as much as I wanted to lol! I’m obsessed with the Crazy Birds s and my H2O
paints so here it is … Lorraine
This is going to be a hand delivered Christmas card!
There is the base, a layer of sparkly film, a matt, then the stamped sentiment
Then for this layer I stamped the and embossed the birds onto the recycled card and then I stamped the birds three more times onto snippets
A snippet from my snippets box
There are four layers of paper for the die cut flowers and seven WOC roses
I also used brads because that film does not like glue or tape and I may decorate the inside!
Created for me and especially for these Challenges

I’m off next to see what the other ladies have created as soon as I have linked this up. We’re a very friendly group of ladies that challenge each other once a fortnight by setting each other themes and creating at least two Christmas cards or projects each month. There is no pressure and you don’t have to join in if there is a challenge for something that you won’t use. If you would like to join us leave me a comment and I’ll pass your details onto our lovely Margaret.
I have posts all ready to go for the next week so I hope to be able to spend more time online. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
