Getting Sentimental - Christmas Card Week 9

Good Evening,

Keeping up the my tradition of completing my weekly Christmas card at the last minute here is this week's offering. Even later than usual because I've been gadding about a lot and haven't had a great deal of time to actually craft : (
For this card I used a beautiful  Bearly Mine Design Insert Paper for both the topper and the inside. I decoupaged the labels, added a pretty toning bow, tiny pearl trim, a silver metal snowflake, some turquoise gems and gold glitter. Couldn't have been easier and quicker - the cutting out of the label motif four times took the longest. The greeting stamp is one I've used several times from a Docrafts freebie, stamped in Versamark and embossed in gold.
I've forgotten where I got the sentiment - I found it in one of the many notebooks I've kept over the years - but I rather like it so used it here because for Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Card Challenge the requirement this week was for the sentiment to be the main feature.

So I hope to submit this card for the challenge on  - whoops, just made it in time :)

I'm also submitting the card to Snoflakes Christmas Card on Docrafts.

Materials used: 
  • Cardstock: Stampin' Up Baja Breeze for base card, white card for topper.
  • Design Paper: Bearly Mine Design, digital Christmas Insert #06 .
  • Stamp: Docrafts Merry Christmas free with Creativity Magazine 2010
  • Other materials: Versamark; gold embossing powder, white/turquoise heart ribbon; pearl trim; metal snowflake; turquoise gems; gold glitter
 If the weather is fine tomorrow the EM wants to take me for a spin in the car to Portpatrick, Galloway. If it's not fine I'll be up here sorting out my haul from the SECC and playing with my new toys :)

I wish you all a great weekend and happy crafting.


  1. This is so beautiful, Elizabeth - and, yes, you scraped in just in time - in fact, I'd just come to my computer to check whether there were any more before it closes and there you were! Thank you for joining in CHNC challenge 9 - challenge 10 will be up in the morning - and there's a prize - hope you can join in. x

  2. Hi Elizabeth, Your card is gorgeous. I love the paper you have used and that little metal snowflake is super! I like the idea of little labels offsetting the large sentiment. I might have to CASE that :) Thanks for your kind comments on mine. Regards, Jaqi
