Woo! A Christmas Card!

Friday, 25 November 2011

Yes, I thought I wouldn't see one coming out of my craft room this year, but I've made a Christmas card!
And it's for the new challenge at Alphabet Challenge Blog which is....

V for Very Vibrant!

What a fab challenge and one right up my street, I love bright colours!
So this is what I've done:


Yep, another easel card, but a circle one this time so I got to use my big dies again.  I used a fabby image from Saturated Canary called Maddie which I coloured with my copics and prismacolour pencils.  I did the out of the box thing in a major way as I had to cut most of her out and only die cut around her feet!


The papers are Crate Paper from the Snow Day collection and I heat embossed some vanilla ice embossing powder around the edges of most things.  My craft room even got a bit of it! lol!  Well, maybe it'll get me more into the Christmassy feel we all need to make Christmas cards! lol


I added some cheap christmas decorations - at least I think they were, they've been in my Christmas box for ages so I'm not entirely sure where they came from - possibly off crackers?


I used a Memory Box die for the tag and a CC designs stamp for the sentiment.  I got a bit carried away with the embossing powder and you can really only read the sentiment face on!  Oops! Every time I read that I can't help singing the song!


A few swarovski's here and there to finish it off and it's done!


So why not pop over to the Alphabet Challenge Blog and see all my teamies fabulous cards and have a go yourself - it's an easy one this time!
