I have been trying to get some of my christmas cards finished, it just seems to take me ages to do one card let alone 50 which really I need to do as a minimum.
I am not too sure on the colours on this card! As I am relatively new to crafting well around 18 months I am now loving all the decorative papers out there. But cant seem to bring myself to cut some of the up as they are too nice to use!!!
This paper is from the 'Christmas Joy' digi set from Bearly mine a fantastic range of digital backgrounds from a very clever lady. Its well worth having a look on her website they all have a vintage feel and have the lovely rough edged detail in the print which means you dont necessarily have to use the distress inks on the edges.
The ribbon is a Sheer 38mm organza ribbon which does have particuarly lovely shimmer to it although the camera has not picked this up. I have embellished it with loads of glitter around the edges and the doily, the flower is again one of the fab ones from the marianne range, I have used a metallic gold spacer for the centre which I have ordered lots and just waiting for them to arrive. The sentiments are from my stash, the corners are from the cuttlebug vintage set
I just need to get a little more confident with using colours and lots of different mats etc
Well happy crafting everyone
