The dies used both for the silhouette bauble and the peace word are from Penny Black. I used snippets of navy blue card to cut them from. For the backings I used some snippets of shiny crinkly paper that I have had in my stash for years. It is lovely paper but very thin and not always suitable. here I used double sided adhesive to stick it to some thin card which made it easier to cut. The pine branch which I stamped with Adirondack Bottle green ink is from one of Linda Brown's Eclectica stamp sets for Paper Artsy. I fixed the bauble with thin foam pads and added a little peel off chain to attach it to the branch. I felt the finished card needed something else so I used some of my ancient red peel off lines to make a border. Once again I made two of each colour way so my stock of Christmas cards is growing quite nicely.
I am entering this at Scraps of Life by Scrappymo! for the
Rudolph Day Challenge - Make a Christmas Card.
And as I've used some snippets I'll also go and play catchup with the playmates at Pixie's Snippets Playground - Just Use Snippets.
Thank you for taking a look, any comments are greatly appreciated.
