Christmas Door

Hello crafters and followers, hope you are all well?  By the time this is posted I shall be on my way back from a relaxing week in Clawton just outside Holsworthy, getting back in time to put my tree up and christmas will start in our household - lovely.

Well Christmas is almost on us, yes honestly, it is on the countdown now and here is my first christmas card of the year.

I started with a C5 card in centura pearl and matted some black card onto that. I then took another piece of centura pearl card, embossed it using falling leaves A4 embossing folder and distressed it using fired brick distress inks.

I die cut a piece of black card using the 5x7 card creator die which fitted my topper perfectly.  My flowers were die cut with a marianne die using gold mirri and some red card topping them off with a dollop of silicone glue and covered it with gold glitter.  The leaves were also marianne die using mirri card.

Shopping List: -

Spellbinders 5x7 Card Creator Die
Marianne Dies for flowers and branches.
A4 Embossilicious embossing folder - falling leaves.
Fired Brick distress inks.
Hunkydory christmas set which was a freebie from Doncaster last year.

Hope you like today's christmas card and thank you for stopping by.

Take care and see you soon.
