Jingle Belles Card 15

Hello friends ...
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend ... we have been so fortunate to have warm sunshine for a few days ... it's not set to last but it seems everyone is making the most of it ... My Husband had his 2nd cataract surgery yesterday ... (I'm playing nurse again ... 4 hourly drops) ... and as he hates to be confined to home, I took him out for some lunch and a meander around a few shops ... then back to watch his beloved football team on TV ... That gave me time to make my card for this week's challenge over at Jingle Belles Rock ... This week we have a recipe prompt courtesy of Clare from Miscanthus Crafts ... the ingredients being ... 

1. As white as a ghost

2. A present

3. A bow or knot

4. A touch of traditional colours

I was quite in my comfort zone with this one as I love to use white especially at Christmas ... with lots of glitter too ... so here is my 15th card ...


I used wide lace so my red dot paper was just able to peek through ... the lace is stick on which saves a whole lot of  fiddling ... my frame was a plain piece of chipboard that I painted and glittered and added some silver trim to 


I must say that I really find white and glitter very hard to photograph ... I think it took me less time to make the card than photograph it! ... maybe I need to invest in one of those light tents ...


Why don't you hop on over to Jingle Belles and see the DT cards too ... it's never too late to join in and make a start on your Christmas cards 
... Wishing you all a lovely weekend ...

Till soon

~ Ros ~

I love this card, the colors are just perfect and just the right amount of glitz. Was a rubber stamp used for the presents?

Hey Ros! What a beautiful card! Love the frame with silver trim=elegant. I bought a light tent and never use it because I can't seem to get the right angles fir the lights. Too confusing! Clearly not a photographer. :-)Amy

Sue Lelli said...

Ros, You REALLY should think about a light tent~BEST money I EVER spent! The key is having a third light shine down from the top (Mona's FAB recommendation!) LOVE LOVE LOVE this card! LOVE how you glammed up the frame and LOVE that wide ribbon! Can believe it has adhesive on it! GORGEOUS!
