I've gone vintage again for this week's Christmas card. The challenge requirement over at Crafty Hazelnut's Challenge is to incorporate distressing so I've gone for a torn paper trim and inked edges around the topper using Tim Holtz's brushed corduroy.
The lovely design papers, paper curl, insert and the topper are all computer generated - from Santa's Christmas Treasures CD-ROM by Hinny Bop. I think the two little girls in the image are very pretty and my aunt who's in her 80s will love this card.
Materials: White card for base; Santa's Christmas Treasures CD-Rom from Hinny Bop; smooth matt paper to print out designs; template to cut out matting for topper; TH Distress ink, brushed corduroy; dark olive ric-rac trim; green glitter; gold card candy.
Once again I'm submitting this card to Crafty Hazel's Christmas Card Challenge - Challenge 20 - distressing.
The postie brought me a lovely surprise this morning and I just have to share it with you.
Tricia of Tricias Confetti sent me this beautiful tag. One of the stamps says 'all you need in life is a friend who has chocolate' (Inkadinkado) - so true! - and attached to the tag was indeed chocolate. Thanks so much for this Tricia - it was such a lovely surprise and the tag is , as you can see, gracing the chook cupboard still.
I'm off on a road trip up North and will be visiting my son and his family over the weekend - haven't seen them for months so it will be lovely to catch up. The weather forecast is not so good which is a shame when you are driving through what should be beautiful scenery :( I am going to try, once again, to schedule a post for while I'm gone but I was a complete failure at it the last time I tried so we will see :) If I don't succeed I'll see you all when I get back.
That's all for now folks,
