DAY 9 - Christmas Inspiration

Good Morning!

Monday morning came round a little too quick! but another week and lots of hours ahead to do some more crafting! and another week for a daily blog of Inspiration for Christmas.

Today a little number using another Sheena stamp from her recent collection ~

I inked the stamp with blackVersafine ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder to give it a lovely lift and then coloured the poinsettias in with Poppy pro-marker and popped glossy accents on the top to enhance them further.
The apature frame started off with forest green cardstock, I cut an apature out using a grand Spellbinder, embossed it using Sheena's holly folder and then highlighted with some Treasure gold.
It needed a little more so I have used Sue Wilson's poinsettia dies to make a couple of flowers.
Very few materials required and such a quick card. If you needed it suitable for posting at the cheapest rate then leave the flowers off, this still looks great.
Enjoy the rest of your day and if you have a minute please leave a comment - a comment left means you will be popped into the draw for blog candy at the end of the 30 days of Inspiration.
Thankyou, as always for popping by,
Bye for now

  2. Just having a catch up Jo and I have missed a lot, last week passed in a haze of food and prep and very little time for blogland I'm afraid.

    You have posted some lovely card the last week, so much inspiration to get us going with our Christmas cards.
