Joy at Christmas

Hi Everyone, hope you are all having a good weekend.   The weather here has been cold and wet so I decided to do some crafting  and I have had a lovely time getting messy and experimenting in my craft room.   Tonight I would like to share another Christmas Card with you all which I made in July of 2011 for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts.   Are you all ready to get crafting ?  well let's get started.   This card takes a little more time than the previous card but I think it is worth it, as the end result looks very elegant.   Well, I think so and I hope you do too !   I would love to hear what you think, so if you have time, please let me know your thoughts and leave me a comment,  I would really appreciate that.

The base card is made from red card and onto this I matted a smaller piece of white card.   I stamped a piece of holly in each corner.   I then stamped the holly four more times, coloured them and glued them on top of the original holly, using silicone glue.   I stamped Joy at the top and bottom and a swirl on the left and on the right edges using black ink.

Take a piece of frosted shrink plastic and stamp all three main images onto it using a Stazon inkpad and colour with Promarker pens.   Cut out and heat shrink.   Fix them onto white squares and then onto slightly larger red squares.   Fix these to the base card.

Stamp 'Christmas Wishes' onto a square of white card and matt this onto a red square as you did for the other images and fix this to the top right of the base card.   Add a little red glitter glue to the holly berries and a red bow to the card centre.   There we have it, one finished Christmas card.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, until next time, cheerio for now.

    1. Thanks very much Mags. I don't use shrink plastic very often as it gets tucked away in my crafting stash and gets forgotten until I go looking for something else and up it pops, then I am spurred on to use it again lols. Hugs Jennifer xx
