Olde Worlde Christmas

Good Morning blog world and I hope the sun is shining on you, this Mothering Sunday.

I have another Christmas card to share today


I used my Go Kreate die set for the kraft card base and mat, which I distressed and inked with white and brown for a shabby look. The image was from a Vintage Christmas cutting sheet. My poinsettias are a mix of Spellbinders and Marianne and the holly is by cheery Lynn.


This shows the concealed tag which was stamped with a magazine freebie and coloured with Sakura glittery pens and tied with ribbons and fibres. You can just about see the stickles.

I'm off to play here

Have a lovely day all xx
