A Touch of Traditional Christmas Colours.

Good evening Followers, Friends and Visitors,

Well the weather has certainly gone from one extreme to the other lol!   We have been very fortunate here up in the hills.   We have escaped all the rain, thunder and lightening  that most of you seem to have had last night and today.   I do hope everyone is safe and not flooded out.

I would like to share a Christmas card which I made for one of Imagination Craft's shows on Create & Craft, back in July 2014,   I have use one of Imagination's panel stencils and Sparkle Medium.

Make a base card from a piece of red A4 card by folding down the centre portrait style.  Matt a smaller piece of green  onto the red, then cream onto the green.

Take the red patterned panel card and lay the stencil onto it.   Spread the red and green Sparkle Medium over the design on the stencil, using a metal spatula.   Remove the stencil and leave the image to dry.

When dry, matt onto the cream card at the left-hand side of the base card.   Take a piece of cream card and put through an embossing machine along with the circles  panel stencil and emboss.

Colour with distress inks and cut to fit down the right-hand side, next to the patterned panel card, leaving a border of cream showing on the right.     Fix to the card and glue some braid down the centre where the two pieces of card meet.  

Die-cut two corners from gold satin card, using the Tattered Lace corner die and glue one to the top and bottom right corners.    Glue an emerald green satin ribbon bow to the centre of the embosses panel.

Well that's  all from me tonight, thanks ever so much for visiting my blog and if you have left me a comment, thank you again, I do appreciate your feedback.   See you all again soon.
