Yes; it is Rudolph Day again already. By that I mean it is the 25th of the month, so time to show another Christmas card, and link it to Sarn's blog, Stamping for Pleasure.
Tomorrow is my oldest son's birthday and I once worked out this is exactly the middle day between one Christmas day and the next! (I bet you really wanted to know that didn't you?)! So folks, we are half way there, and what better incentive that that knowledge, to get some Christmas cards made ahead of the November rush.So here is mine for this week.
I cut the holly frame with my Silhouette Cameo and once again it decided not to cut very well for me. Fortunately I was using up oddments of paper, but I still wasted a lot. In the end I got out the one sort that I know will always cut. It is bright white, pearlescent paper and it is totally non-fibrous, so there is niothing to catch on the blade. So I was left with a white circle of holly which I then attacked with various ink and mica sprays, and some radient rain paint, and I ended up with quite a nice wreath in green with a hint of gold. I added some red perfect pearls drops for the berries.
I used plain white card for the base and cut a circular aperture which I backed with an embossed circle cut from another project. I then raided some ancient stash, looking for an image to to go on it and came up with these bells. They are slightly decoupaged in three layers, and the card was finished with some equally ancient Christmas ribbon from my stash and a greetings to match the wreath cut with my new Britannia word dies.
