I haven't in the past made any Christmas cards in the summer months because I prefer to 'enjoy' the current season / occasion before I move on to the next. However, this year I have found it easy to get caught up in new ideas and images and before I knew it, I was involved !
I have made my second Christmas card in a month and it's all because I can't resist Nikky's designs at Polka Doodles.I have made this card for my son's family (don't worry he doesn't look at my blog so won't see it) and have added 4 stocking to the fireplace as there are 4 of them in the family.
It is on an 8" x 8" base card and all the detail (fireplace,swag,stockings,etc) have been layered to give dimension, including the sentiment.
I have enhanced the design with added colour to the flames with Sakura glaze pens, glitter to the greenery with Stickles and my favourite,Glossy Accents mainly to the baubles.
I hope to enter this into the following challenges:
