Hope you are all well. I had a lovely weekend in Birmingham. Managed to get all the christmas presents bought. Just got the mammoth job of wrapping them up now lol. After shopping all day on Saturday we spent the evening strolling through the German market enjoying some mulled wine. It was a lovely evening and a well deserved treat after trudging round all the shops.
Today I have been in my crafty room as I needed to mass produce some christmas cards. This is the design that I came up with and I made 24 of these today.
This christmas tree is one of my favourite christmas stamps that I have. It was actually part of a free stamp set from Hot Off The Press. It came with a crafting magazine about 3 or 4 years ago. I stamped the christmas tree image using versamark and then embossed using silver embossing powder. For the different layers I used coredinations cardstock and kraft card. I lightly went around the edge of the image panel with distress ink and then stickles, for a bit of sparkle. I added some liquid pearls which looks a bit like snow. A sentiment, a bow and some doodling on the kraft card finished it off.
Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think. I apologise if I haven't been round to visit all your blogs just recently. With all the preparations for christmas time is very precious at the moment.
