Christmas in August!!

As with most crafters I have begun the Christmas card making, and this is my first card in preparation for the big day (well there are only 143 left you know!)

I want to enter this in the Papertake weekly challenge sketch free for all. I used Sketch #69

Using LoTV (I use these quite a lot!) I stamped and coloured with promarkers, added clear glitter with a glue pen and cut out using a spellbinders die.  I then made my own background by stamping and embossing the  using an holly stamp, stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with purple glittery powder.  Matted and layered.  I then used an embossing folder that has Chrsitmas/winter words on it for the middle panel, and cut out two of the words to use as the sentiment.

I then layered up, using card, ribbon and lace and finally mounted on a 6 x 6 scalloped card.

All I need to do now is make another 40 (ish) to hand out in 4 months time....

Oh and my other project this week was my new header and image for my new facebook page.... coming soon! All things purple and sparkly has a brand logo!!

Thanks for looking!
