A Christmas card ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. I’ve been dipping into my bag of Christmas snippets again, lol, and here is the end result …

Another little A6 card
It will go through the post easily too
All the yummy details
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
L for Lovely Lime & M for More than one embellishment
Dies R Us Challenge #75 Celebrations I used a Spellbinders set of dies
Inky Chicks Challenge #85 Christmas
Scrapy Land Challenge #68 Dry or Heat Embossing
Scrappy Mo’s Rudolph Day Challenge Anything Christmas Goes
Sparkles Christmas Challenge #77 Non Traditional Colours:
I think turquoise, teal blue, black, lime and red 
count as non traditional lol!

The stamped and heat embossed panel was in the snippets bag already stamped and embossed so I die cut a rectangle to go underneath. The next step was to attach a resin sticker which had the sentiment and I used several foam pads underneath the card die cut sticker to raise it a little, it didn’t look right flat, however it is still slender enough to not cost extra postage. I know I used WOW glitter EP as the embossing powder and I’m reasonably certain it was coloured with my Spectrum Noir AquaTints.

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
