Hi crafty friends, I hope you're Christmas preparations are going well.
Just doing some late night blogging after some very late night Christmas shopping.
I made this card for two special people who love the rustic charm look to Christmas,
so I decided to keep it natural and shade the sweet image with a burnt umber polychromos pencil which I blended with a paper stump and Sansodor, I think it's worked?
The base card is 51/2" sq crumb cake and real red matts from SU
Pattern paper is from the Molly Bloom Christmas Carnival mag.
Stamps used are Little Gabriel and Mary and Joseph from LOTV
and the sentiment stamp is part of the Contempo Christmas set from SU.
The background was embossed with a Sizzix holly plate.
Punches used are EK scallop border and Friskas corner.
I hand stitched after using the SU piercing tool and guide,
then added just a tiny touch of glitter with a Sukura star dust pen.
Challenges to have fun with
