Jo's Christmas Inspiration
Last night I was invited to join some friends to do some craft and have a chat. I was so excited to be going out and doing something creative again...but what to do???? Then I remembered a beautiful Christmas card that I had seen on Jo Eades' lovely blog just this weekend (you can see it here) and it inspired me to make these Christmas cards:
List of Ingredients:
Stamps: Christmas Classics (Stampin' Up!) and Merry and Bright (Papertrey Ink)
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Kraft and Whisper White
Ink: Chocolate Chip Classic Ink
Accessories: Crimper, Spots and Dots Cuttlebug Folder, Red Grosgrain ribbon, Gold DMC Thread, Gold Kindy Glitz, Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots, Sticky Strip and SNAIL adhesive.
I had a devil of a job photographing these just now....with the wind blowing them all over the garden and dinging up their corners...fun times! But I am pleased with how they turned out, and love, love, love the colour combo! I don't know that you can tell from the photos, but the Christmas trees are raised up on dimensionals....my crafting hiatus having done nothing to diminish my dimensional fetish ;-).
While I am here, I also wanted to show you two beautiful cards made by Miss 6....who is obviously developing something of a knack for punch art:
Thanks so much for dropping by.
