Traditional twist christmas...

Happy Friday...

Wow what a  few days I can honestly say Ive been racing this week but its a gentler day for me today promise.

I thought i would share a christmas card form my shows earlier in the week that uses traditional chitsmas colours but with a modern twist.

I stared by using silver moon sparkle texture paste through the that special touch holly background mask and left it to dry.


Next I cut the triple merry christmas perspectives die in white pearl card and took the merry christmas strips out.  I added these to a piece of card which I had cut with stripes of rich red and brunswick green foundation card ( 1cm strips)




I simply matted and layers this overt the masked background ( one dry about 1 hour)and added a spray of striped ribbon from my stash and one of the pine cone em,belishments.

enjoy...

  18. Another wonderful card John. I do hope you manage to have a break from work soon. You have been working so hard to bring us such wonderful samples on tv. I have enjoyed all of the shows l have watched, not all live (shopping to be bought and the dreaded housework) thank goodness Hochanda have catch up. I have written down your instructions for the cracker, you are very kind to let us have the measurements and your demo was so easy to follow. Kind regards Sandra.😊
