Just to say thank you to all of you who have left kind comments on my blog. I really appreciate them and the time you take to have a look at my cards.
Well, this is my card for Sketch Saturday.
I have used a stamp from Lizzie Anne Designs and coloured Santa in with promarkers and lots of stickles. He is very sparkly!
I then cut circles with my quickutz dies and added added twine inbetween the layers.
The cardstock I have used is American Crafts Christmas collection. The cardstock is textured and very similar to Bazzil but comes in handy colour families. The DP is 'Dashing' from SU.
I cut that into 4 squares and added faux stiching ( which is a bit ropey on this card!). I also added photo corners, buttons and ribbon. I don't have a handy ribbon punch, so I just slit holes with my craft knife and threaded my sentiment through. The sentiment is also from SU.
I have chalked around most of the edges with brown chalk for an aged feel.
You know how sometimes you make a card and you keep adding bits to it...then whoops, it is a bit too much. I think this is how I feel about this card. But hey ...that is how it is going to stay. I'm on a roll of making Christmas cards for this weekends upcoming craft fair. Lets hope the folk visiting are in a Christmassy mood!
Oh just to show you all what showed up up our way last night.....
Have a great evening folks,
