Hoping Christmas will Drag-on :)


At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Heavy Metal.We have the fabulous Stamping Dragon and The Robin’s Nest as our sponsors too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

For my card I’ve used the sweet Penny’s Pudding by Stamping Dragon and coloured her with Copic Ciao Markers.I then cut her out and added her to the holly embossed piece of kraft card,which has the bottom corners rounded,using foam tape for dimension.I then adhered this to a card blank which I also rounded the bottom corners of.I laid a couple of strips of washi tape across the top.I die cut some holly leaves and topped this with a button threaded with baker’s twine.The sentiment has been stamped in red ink then clear heat embossed.This way you don’t have to worry about stray flecks too much 🙂  A 1″ punch fits this greeting well,so no fiddling about to cut it out.I did ink the edges with the same ink pad to give a better finish as this card has a white core.
