December Christmas Card #6 ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. Here’s my card …

Such a pretty bauble stamp
Great for posting
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges

I will attempt to keep most of my Christmas card posts short and sweet and that really does apply to the cards I created over the weekend. I have my bag of Christmas snippets out and because of that and the fact that we need small flat cards I created a few that were quick to create. For this Christmas card I stamped the bauble with Black Versafine ink pad and black sparkly WOW EP and then I used my heat tool to set the powder. I went back to add the sentiment with Versafine black and the branch with green archival. I coloured the bauble with watercolour paints and put it to one side to dry whilst I stamped the next card. A snippet of patterned paper added to an A6 card and several sequins give it a subtle bling.

Subtle bling is not my comfort spot normally but I am happy with the finished look of these simple cards and at least we won’t be spending a bomb on postage lol! 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
