A Merry Little Christmas

This is another of the cards that I created for the Designer Cardmaking Joanna Sheen Special.  I was commissioned to create five cards using the fabulous free kit that comes with the magazine.

There is a 4-in-1 die set, 8 co-ordinating stamps, an embossing folder, 102 papers & toppers and some ribbon and gems.  For this card I used some of the papers and one of the stamps.


I used dark green card stock along with some hammered card stock and a little ribbon from my stash.


I fussy cut the flowers and I inked the edges before layering them up for dimension.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Fabulous Christmas card. Not sure I would have had the patience to have fussy cut those flowers but they were definitely worth the effort you put into them. Thank you for joining in the challenge at CHNC Extra for October.
