Christmas in Green ...

Happy Sunday,

I hd a fab day yesterday at Crafty Company in Fleetwood we even had cake!  take a look on Facebook if you want to see the pics!

Back to today and as it's sunday I thought i would share a quick Christmas card from my christmas stamp range in a colour I rarely use.

I used basil leaf colour cloud to stamp the rose scroll background stamp.  I cut a panel in the middle of the card using the greek collection border and placed acetate behind this to ad stability.

Next I simply cut a wreath form my christmas shades paper pad and added a spray of ivy and some of the christmas rose stamps and matching dies.

Enjoy...

  22. I love the concept and to add acetate to the back is a great idea Like others have said I'm not keen on this green Would Brunswick have been too dark
