The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Christmas Card.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

Just look at the delight in Christmas Fun by Crafty Sentiments¬†Designs‘ face!She’s been coloured with Polychromos Pencils onto Desert Storm Kraft card.I then ran her through a dotty¬†embossing folder (poor girl!) and coloured over each one with a white gel pen to give the impression she’s sitting enjoying a flurry of snow ūüôā Sadly I think this great folder is now discontinued ūüė¶ I’m so glad I managed to track one down.She’s been cut and layered with some Crealies stitched square dies.After cutting the border at the top I sprinkled over some white chunky embossing powder.I did the same to the wooden snowflake at the bottom.I was lucky enough to¬†discover¬†the stitched ribbon on one of my forays to my local craft warehouse whilst looking for stuff to make NEXT¬†years’s Christmas card with – that’s right!It’s a pretty good match for the kraft cardstock don’t you think?The sentiment stamp was another find and a true bargain at just over ¬£1 after discount.This time a circular a Crealies stitched die has been used to¬†cut it out.I had as much fun making this as she appears to be having in the snowfall!
