Feels a little like Christmas


Yes, another card for my Christmas collection.  If I keep this up at least one time this year I should feel organised. :-)  Shame I have to wait till Christmas for this to happen.

I started with Red Linen Textured card for the base.  Next I added silver Jac paper.  Then white cardstock which I ran through my brand new embossing folder Framed Oval.  I added silver holly stickers to the top corners and a silver Merry Christmas sentiment.  I used my Spellbinder Deckled Edged Oval dies to cut the background for the paper tole.
Finally I added the 3D paper tole....lots of hand cutting on this one and I definitely needed my glasses.
Before putting the layers together I went around the edge of all the pieces with an embossing tool just to give the flowers and leaves some shape.  Then used silicone glue to adhere the layers together.

Well that is me for this week.  Wishing you all a terrific weekend and I hope to spend some of my time catching up on all your fantastic blogs.  Nothing extraordinary planned here.  Cleaning, tidying, crafting, shopping, and lazing.
