Getting into Christmas

Hello ...

I'm making more Christmas cards recently ... I don't know about you but sometimes I find the transition from making Christmas projects back to making birthday projects a little difficult ... so right now I'm in Christmas mode and I thought I link my card up with those lovely ladies at
Jingle Belles Rock
where the theme is the Great Outdoors



Having sponged and stencilled I die cut the bottom half and left it slightly wider than my card to give it that curved effect


Of course I gave no consideration as to how this would go into an envelope Lol! But who cares ... I just like it ...


I'm hoping you can see the glitter on those stars ... It's certainly all over my craft space and just about everything else ... Ginger cat is positively sparkling! And no one goes home from here without taking a little with them... whether they want to or not Lol!

I hope your week is sparkling ...

Hugs

Fact that you made the border die cut slightly wider adds a lovely detail. The houses are so sweet and the sparkling stars are a true eye catcher. Love your use of sponging technique too. Hence the postage; it's a gem!

I say just add it to the top of a package and them it won't have to get squashed in an envelope. :-) The curved shape is fun and what's Christmas without some glitter. :-) Hugs!

Great card Ros. I bought this die after being inspired by another card of yours that used it and I love what you have done here with the curve and also the background.

Robyn Oliver said...

I'm just smiling..."simply" gorgeous

Jinny Newlin said...

I agree! That's what padded envelopes are for. Right?! So fun! Love the curved design to bits, and your little line of houses is ever so sweet!

This card is so unusual. I love the central bulge, it gives you a great 3D effect.
