We're back home and rested after a lovely few days in the Lake District. We had a lot of wet weather, which gave me time to catch up on some reading, but we saw a wonderful sunrise and had one glorious sunny day when we could get some walking in. I forgot to take my camera and I'm kicking myself because I don't have a single shot of a good sunrise - truth be told, I don't even usually see a sunrise!
Now I'm back I want to start thinking about my Christmas cards and will try to get most of them made before the panic sets in when the last posting date looms.
I made a card for the current Case Study challenge which this month is featuring the wonderful Niki Estes. This was the card for casing
and I decided to case the music, the lace and the lower right hand focal point for a Christmas card.
I used a Kraft card base, stamped with PTI Background basics twinkle in white ink which was also swiped around the edges, and then dyed some lacy ribbon with fired brick distress ink. I took some white satin card and used the resist technique to stamp and emboss the music from WMS Musical backgrounds and then inked and buffed the card with peeled paint distress ink, before die cutting the tree with a PTI die. I decorated the tree with some card candy, cut a little heart, and stamped and embossed the greeting.
Thanks for looking.
