Yes! It's another Christmas card....

Hi Susan here...

I know!! Another Christmas card, but you know you can't have too many at this time of the always need one extra card to give to that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it hahaha!!

I hope you like it, I had some spare time and thought I would make something just for the fun of it!

I made a gatefold card for this project, hard to photograph I know but I like them and they look very effective when finished.
The backing paper I found in my stash, it is from Fancy Pants and is called 'Saint Nick'. I love this paper it has swirls and snowflakes in the background that are all muted. I aged the outer edges of the paper with inks.
I used a die to make the swirls and added glitter to them after I had used inks to slightly alter the colour.
The flowers are from Hobby Craft and Crafty Emma's, gorgeous little flowers. I added little green gems all around them.
The gorgeous tree on the side is from Nitwits and looks like it is embossed, I added stickles to the 'embossed' parts and some pearls, a small ribbon bow to the trunk to finish it off.
The ticket and sentiment are from a set by Tim Holtz.

This view is to show you what it looks like stood up and the beautiful tree.

This is becoming one of my favourite stamps, it is from Nellie Snellen, check out Bunny Zoes they are in stock here. I used distressing inks to colour the image. I absolutely adore that little frog....he's just waiting for some magic to happen to him.

This beautiful sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs and has been designed by Ann Vento. I changed the colour of the wording on the computer to match my colour scheme.

Thank you for looking and your wonderful comments
Love and hugs
