An early post for me today but as I have been up since five o'clock I thought I would make the most of my time. My youngest daughter is currently working at Next and they are getting all their stock ready for their big sale on Boxing Day. As they can't do this while the shop is open it means a few late nights and early mornings. She worked till 10.00pm last night and was starting again at 6.00am this morning. As there are no buses running here at that time I got the taxi driver job. Think an afternoon nap may be in order today lol.
I have now finished all my christmas cards and looking forward to working on something other than christmas. I still have a few to post starting with this one.
I used a lovely decoupage stamp from Imagination Crafts for this card. The image was stamped onto white card and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then coloured the image using mica powders (also available from Imagination Crafts) before adding some glitter to the trees and some liquid pearls as snow. The mica looks so shimmery in real life. The image was mounted onto gold card and then onto some mulberry paper. I have had the mulberry paper in my stash for a couple of years and love the effect it gives when torn. Around the outside of the card I used a little stamp that is in the decoupage set. For embellishments I added some gold gems, a bow and dazzler and a little sentiment.
Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing what you all think. Off now to catch up on some commenting.
