Wplus9 Christmas Card

Hello everyone, and a very warm welcome to Lori who is joining us as a new follower this week.

Well the weather is definitely on the cool side around here today, so I stayed tucked up inside and made a card for my Christmas card pile. I used the colours asked for on the challenge over at Merry Mondays which is green, white and wood grain, and came up with this



I embossed some brown card with a woodgrain impression plate and then stamped the tree and sentiment from the Pretty Patches: Tree set from Wplus9 in Limeade Ice  and Ripe Avocado ink. I tried using some white ribbon but it got lost on the white background, so I dyed it with a Copic pen YG95 and was pleased that when it dried it still had a satin sheen! I added a strip of Limeade Ice card and a heart and some stars to finish it off.

I'm also going to enter this into the Creative Creations challenge for an early Christmas make.

Thanks for looking in.

Hugs

  26. Beautiful card, Carol. I have this set and have only used it once but seeing your card inspires me to use it again - may just CASE yours ;) Is your sentiment heat embossed - hard to tell from the photo. But either way (inked or embossed) it came out beautifully - very crisp and just perfect!!
