Sentimental Christmas

Sentiment Only is the challenge theme for Craft Your Passion this week.So the focus must be on the sentiment and no other images are allowed.We have the fab Simon Says Stamp! as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

As we’re well in to March and I haven’t made one Christmas card yet I thought this would give me the ideal opportunity to do so.The sentiment is from Crazibout Stamps but sadly they don’t seem to exist anymore. 😦 I decided on framing the stamped words with a holly wreath and used my new Punch Around the Page Set for the first time.I have to admit I found it fiddly at first to lay the leaves down but soon got the hang of it and can see more of these being made with different papers and ribbons.The berries are Liquid Pearls.I had a lot of fun making this!

Sentiment : Believe in the Miracle of Christmas by Crazibout Stamps (no longer available)
Inks : Memento Dew Drops in Rhubarb Stalk,Desert Sand and Cottage Ivy
