Merry Christmas Mum

This is the card that I made for my Mother in Law this year, she loves anything sparkly and shiny so I decided to use a topper and card stock from a Hunkydory Kit.


The Merry Christmas is a Joanna Sheen die and the Mum is a Clearly Besotted Die, I cut them all from Silver Mirri Card.


I added a few gems to finish and decorated the inside using a verse from Crafter's Companion.


I'm going shopping with my eldest son today, hopefully to buy some clothes in the sales and pop into Hobbycraft on the way home - I'll try to catch up with everyone later.

Pauline, This card is just a delight. Very classy with the silver and gold. I'm sure you MIL loved it as would anyone who received such a beauty. I have a feeling that "probably" turned in "absolutely" stopping at Hobbycraft. LOL Wishing you a Happy Healthy New Year.

The topper is fabulous with the diagonal panel and silver adornments! I love those beautiful geese and hope you had a wonderful time shopping :)

Love this card Pauline, I've been using lots of hunkydory kits this Christmas. They are just wonderful and fantastic quality x

The design layout on this pretty card really makes the design papers shine. Love the winter scene with the geese, and also like the sparkle on the sentiments using the silver mirror paper. this fit the bill of 'sparkle' and is very elegant too! TFS & Happy New Year. Hope you found some good sales and some craft goodies too. Hugs
