A Christmas card

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. I’ve been ferreting through my bag of Christmas snippets again and I was able to whip up a quick Christmas card, lol, and here is the first one …

A multi layered A6 card
The details!
A final look

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges 
 Allsorts Challenge #418 Christmas in June
Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge #336 Anything Goes Christmas 

 Double D Challenge Moodboard

Scrapy Land Challenge #67 Anything Goes: I used Spellbinder dies
I need Christmas cards for men so there is nothing ‘girly’ on this card

I used black Versafine to stamp the image onto Sheena stamping card snippets. I then coloured with my Spectrum Aqua pens. Once it was dry I die cut the image using my Spellbinder elongated scalloped rectangle dies and I die cut several coloured card snippets at the same time to create a multi layered look to the card whilst keeping it as flat as possible for posting. I used several very old resin type stickers and card stock stickers to finish. Nice and easy lemon squeazy lol!

A quick to create card using one of the stamps that came with a magazine I purchased last year so we have another card for our box, coloured card snippets used up and very old embellishments too, lol! Slowly and surely I am using my old supplies with newer supplies, the only way is upward and onward. 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
