Christmas Presence


At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous Crafty Sentiments Designs as our sponsor 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.

Blitz with present by Crafty Sentiments Designs could be used for any gift giving occasion.Here I’ve chosen Christmas.Her clothing and neatly wrapped parcel have been paper pieced and the rest has been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.The papers and colours are both non traditional but I thought the pastel shades would add some pretty festive cheer 🙂 The background panel has been created using a patchwork style design onto kraft card.Some complimetary ric-rac,from the same collection,has been stretched across the bottom.The greeting is stamped directly onto the base.The wooden wreath was a little too golden yellow to coordinate with the kraft so a couple of ink pads were used to tone it down a bit.This shall be another Christmas card for 2017 – I’ve now made 4 in total for NEXT year!!
