I gotta tell ya - I'm feeling pretty smug today ;-)
After having a little panic yesterday about how behind I am with my Christmas cards,
I came up with a design I am really happy with.
I feel a production line coming on!
It needs a bit of tweaking -
I think I will just stamp the sentiment right on the card -
and if I squish the bow down a little, I might get away with 'normal' postage :-)
The tree was made really simply with nested pennant dies and then bejazzled with red and sparkly gems.
I admit the bow was an afterthought - but is so belongs on there ;-)
The trickiest bit of the whole thing for me, was stamping the sentiment.
The text is in 2 lines on the stamp and it was fiddly to ink it up to get a clean message.
If anyone knows of a pretty 'Merry Christmas' stamp, I am on the look out for one.
One Stop Craft - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Winter Holiday and Ribbon.
I know there's only a small piece of ribbon on my card, but it really finishes off the look.
Oozak - Winter Vibes
Southern Girls - Christmas Projects
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Anything Goes (Holiday)
Right - now I am off to have a trial run of making some chocolate, nut fudge.
Have a great weekend everyone. xxx
