Presents at Christmas

Hi there,  hope everyone is snug and warm, as I sit here I can hear the wind lashing the rain on the windows,  I'm so pleased to be in the house snug and warm in front of the log fire.  Are you all ready for Christmas ?  I just have my cake to ice and I'm finished  !   whoopee.   Well onto tonight's card,  I just love this cute little stamp,  I received it free with a craft magazine.   The stamp is a Holly Hobby Stamp.  The background of this card was made using  Imagination Craft's  Christmas Scrolls Border Stencil,   I love the design of this stencil.  OK on with the card.

Make a base card from red card stock.   Cut a piece of white card slightly smaller than the red and lay the stencil on it.   Dab the distress inks through the design, remove the stencil and leave to dry.

Stamp the girl onto some white card four times.   Stamp the girl again in the centre of the stencilled  oval using black ink.   Colour the images using Promarker Pens and cut out.   3D the images onto the image in the centre of the oval using silicone glue.

Wrap some ribbon down the left-hand edge of the white card and secure on the reverse.   Glue this to the red base card.

Die-cut a Tattered Lace snowflake using white card.   Rub with  a Versamark Pad and heat emboss with gold embossing powder.   Glue this to the top of the ribbon.   Colour some white card the same as the girl's hat and make one large, one medium and one small flower.   Glue the small flower to a ribbon bow and glue to the top of the ribbon.

Die-cut a tag using a Spellbinders tag die, from green card.   Stamp 'Happy Christmas' on the top of the tag and heat emboss with gold embossing powder.  Spread some Imagination Craft's red Sparkle Medium over the top of the tag  and on the bottom of the tag using part of an image from a stencil.   Fix the tag just under the flower.   Glue the medium and the large flowers to the bottom of the oval.

Well that's it guys !   Thanks so much for dropping by my blog, if you're not already a cardmaker, I do hope that this card may have encouraged you to take up this wonderful creative hobby.   See you again soon.
