CHRISTMAS CARD INSPIRATION

 
Hi everyone and welcome to my blog.
Have you started making your Christmas Cards yet?
If not, here is one to get you going.
For this card I used a sketch from Feeling Sketchy for my inspiration.
Sketch #103
Here is the sketch for 103
 
 
HERES HOW
 
Take a card blank (mine is 6x8inches) and cover with pretty Christmas paper. I used two co-ordinating papers and added  a gold peel-off strip to cover the join.
Next cut out a sheet of cream card 5x7inches, ink the edges and adhere to the centre of the card
Adhere another co-ordinating sheet of paper 4.34x6.34 inches, ink the edges
Attach a strip of gold card just off centre
Attach flourishes as per the sketch
Make three poinsettias from red cardstock, add  glitter and gems and adhere
Cut and stamp two leaves, adhere
Add sentiment
Add mini roses.
