Oh Christmas Tree

Good Morning everyone.. at last I have managed take a photo of my Christmas card, in-between work, kitchen DIY and housework lol!! Debs and  I also managed to get to the Dome in Doncaster on Sunday for Paulas 'Stamp Magic' show ... I didn't buy very much just a couple of essentials.. what am I saying everything I buy is essential lol!!! , I did feel a bit guilty leaving David with the kitchen, but it was nice just for a couple of hours to have a browse and a cup of coffee with my best friend.. my lovely daughter:).   I met up with Carole another fellow crafter, a really nice lady who I met at the LOTV shop earlier in the year and we've kept in touch via email and have met up at a couple of shows we've been too, it was lovely to have a chat:)... anyway on to my card... it's a LOTV image called 'Oh Christmas Tree' and I coloured it with my distress pens, I do looove these pens as blending is so easy with them..I'm itching now to get some more colouring done lol!!  A bit of a photo overload I'm afraid...





I thoroughly enjoyed making this card... I heat embossed the card, poinsettia and leaf edges in gold.  I also heat embossed around the edge of the tag...  I added glamour dust to the fur hat and coat edges, and used stickles stardust on the snow (a little tip from Anne xx).  I faux stitched around the edge of the image which was coloured with distress markers and a little prisma pencil.  I used my new doohickey heart tag.. ( I think everyone in blog land has one of these now lol!!) but it is soooo lovely:)  I added ribbon, gold lace, pearls and a pearl brad for the centre of the poinsettia.  The lovely memory box star is one of my favourites at the moment! Papers are 'Merry Little Christmas' by Marianne.

  7. This is so beautiful! It's such a sweet image and I love the traditional color scheme. The golden lace is such a great detail - I think a little gold or sparkle makes a Christmas card even more Christmasy!

  14. Hi Marjorie

    A truly beautiful card.

    Love the traditional colours, your gorgeous papers and the lovely way you have coloured your image.

    I enjoyed all the photographs and can you believe that the House of Hearts doesn't have that heart tag .. .. and has to admit to never having seen it before!!! I have clearly been too much of a stranger in blogland recently!!

    Hope you are well and having a good weekend.

    Love Jules xx
