I started with a 8x8 black base card and stamped with the small stamp from JOFY28. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz rub-on from his Christmastime Remnant Rubs
Next we have a layer of silver Mirri card that's been through an embossing folder.
This is one of my favourites, it's Ten Seconds Studio metal that's been through an embossing folder and sanded back. Love it! I should use it more often. I got this from the shop a couple of years ago but it's too nice to use lol.
My jolly old Santa is from Hot Pick Xmas 04, and he's been coloured with Prisma pencils, and has had a bit of silver Frantage around the edges, You can't really tell in the photograph but I've stuffed his tummy with cotton wool to make him stand out on the card.
A bit of black organza ribbon to finish off, and all done. No bow though, a knot's as fancy as I get!
The matching tag has been made with some of the left over metal, and the background's been stamped with the snowflakes from Darcy's Eclectica 04. The sentiment is from HP Xmas 04.
I always struggle to make cards, but I'm happy with how this turned out, and Mum and Dad seemed to like it.
This will be my last post before Christmas as real life has well and truely kicked in so a big thank you and Merry Christmas to everyone, and I'll be back in the New Year.
There's still time to enter the challenge at Country View Crafts so go on get all nostalgic!
Thanks very much for looking and have a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year xx
