This card is almost two months late. That is very late indeed. Sylvie at Gibmiss blog hosted The Christmas Card Club theme of Anything Goes, for the fortnight beginning June 11, 2017. Pop over to Sylvie's blog to see her beautiful cards, Gibraltar style! The other ladies in our club are listed in my sidebar and I have hyperlinks with the names to take you straight to their blogs. You will not be disappointed!
I have used two NBUS items on this card. The Woodware Christmas Date stamp is a fairly new NBUS. It was a gift from a very good friend in England.. You know who you are and I hope to get back over to have a day out with you again!
This stamp cried out to be paper pieced. I used my NBUS Tim Holtz Yuletide paper pad for the plaid background and then from that same TH pad, I chose a mossy green dotted paper for the holly, and a red chevron for the number 25. I pop dotted these all forward with very thin black foam dots.
I cut a wee snippet of red Bazzill for the berries...this is proof that it is worth while to save even teensy pieces! I found a snippet of a very roughly textured kraft card for the mat and inked the edges liberally with an Ingvild Bolme black chalk ink and added four red nailheads to the corners.
This was a very fun card to make and I think I will look thru my snippets boxes and chose some other DP colours and patterns so I can make up half a dozen more!!!
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets.
2. Christmas Card Club - Anything Goes
