Another Christmas card made using the fabulous Cosmo Cricket "Be Good" range of papers, I have to say, these are my absolute favourite Christmas papers of all time :O))
I began by stamping a lovely Holly Scroll stamp (Inkadinkado) onto a plain piece of the Be Good paper, embossing the image in gold. I added dots of Ruby Slippers Stickles to make little berries on the holly.
I matted this onto some golden cardstock and then used a small piece of beige card, running it thru my Cuttlebug to emboss a holly design onto it. I matted this onto gold card and just lightly rubbed a little Walnut Stain Distress Ink over the embossed leaves to highlight them. I added a couple of dots of the Ruby Slippers to the berries on the embossed detail.
Matted onto a large piece of the Be Good paper, I finally popped a lovely little sentiment onto the card and et voila, finished!!
Then, I sat there looking at it and thinked to myself....mmmm, it is missing something....so I had a rummage in the Prima stash I have and added a couple of flowers and a brad to the card....much better I think :O)
Now, for the important bit.....I have a little bit of Blog Candy to giveaway to a lucky reader, who will be chosen at random, on Friday 5th December.
The candy is a little sheet of unmounted Stitchels Mini-Mini stamps that I designed. Here is a little piccie of them coloured in, so you can see what you could win:
Along with the unmounted stamp sheet, you will also win a piece of Kling-On Repositionable Cushioning, so you can mount your Stitchels straight away. Now, the Stitchels are mini in size, so they are perfect for those tiny little details you want to add to your ATC's, Inchies, Moo's etc. I will however, be giving away an A5 size sheet of Kling-On, so you will have plenty left over to play with on other stamps :O))
All you need to do to enter this giveaway is add a post here & add a link from your Blog to mine.
There will be another couple of Candy giveaway's later in the month, so please come back and visit to see if you could be the winner :O))
The Stitchels stamps, Kling-On, Distress Inks, Stickles etc used in my project can be found at The Artistic Stamper.
Thanks for looking and I look forward to reading your comments.
