Merry Christmas

onsdag 1 augusti 2012

Hi there!
Today I am sharing a Christmas card I made after my last attempt with my Dylusions. I tried again and this time the result was better. For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current The Sweet Stop sketch challenge.

I stamped and heat embossed the bird from Inkadinkado, then I used a couple of stencils and sprays from Dylussions to create this card.  I smeared over 3-D snow on the leaf stencil and then I also painted with a little Gesso for them to remain white.

Jovial paper pad from Basic Grey was used, and oneYou Do sentiment stamp, which was cut and embossed with one Nested Lacey Pennants die. White Pearl Maker was added around the text.
I finished of the card with a wreath, a metal charm and and bow made of natural string.

I saw that ABC Christmas Challenge has come to O for Open it up, and I usually do that often and show you, so here you have the inside.
Thanks so much for visiting me today and sharing my crafty project!
I hope you have a great week.
Hugs, Birgit
