December Christmas Card #7 ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. I’ve been dipping into the snippets of Christmas patterned papers and the snippets of white card again lol! Once I knew what patterned paper snippets I was going to use the stamping and light colouring were relatively quick and here is the end result …

An A6 card 
Great to post too
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Addicted-to-Stamps-Challenge #159 Seasons Greetings
Allsorts Challenge #445 Snowflakes
Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge Christmas/Winter Holiday
Try it on Tuesday Challenge Twinkle Twinkle

I stamped and heat embossed the bauble with Versamark and WOW EP then I stamped the branch with green archival and Versafine black ink for the sentiment. I coloured the bauble using a Distress ink pad then trimmed the panel before attaching the paper and stamped panel to the C6 card. A few silver sequins finished the job and we have more cards for our box. 

A quick post from me today peeps, I hope you are all well and doing okay and for those that aren’t I hope things get better for you soon. 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
