I did intend posting this card yesterday evening but was shattered after our weekend away so ended up having an early night.
We spent a lovely weekend in Manchester with our youngest daughter. We did a bit of christmas shopping during the day at the Trafford Centre. In the evening we went into the centre to wander through the christmas market. I can certainly recommend the hot spiced cider and hot chocolate with Baileys. Very warming on a cold chilly night. All in all we had a super weekend and only another week and a half before my daughter is home for christmas. Good times.
Anyway, here is my card share for today.
I decided to have a go with my Flitterglu and gilding flakes. I chose a stamp from Papermania that I bought last year. I wasn't sure if the stamp was going to work as I thought it may have had too much detail. But I followed the instructions for using the flitterglu and it came out a treat. I did colour the holly at the top with some glittery pens that I have got and added some stickles for the berries. Kept the rest of the card quite simple as I did not want to detract from the image. I think the gilding flakes has given it a vintage feel. If you click on the photo you can really see how the gilding flakes have picked up the detail from the stamp.
Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think. I am watching the Royal Variety performance at the moment and will attempt to do some commenting at the same time. Wish me luck lol.
