Believe in Santa!

Morning crafters, lovely to have you visit me today. Another week has passed and Christmas is getting closer lol! Sorry to keep reminding you all!!!

May I give a very warm welcome to Michelle M, great to have you on board, thank you for following me its much appreciated and if you have a blog of your own Michelle please let me know.

Another Christmas card today, I should stop making them really as I have more than enough lol!

I decided to do a Green card as I had not done one for quite a long time, so my theme was Green & Gold.

I made an 8" X8" card from Rich Green card and matted it with some White. My next layer I put double-sided Tape around the edge and covered it with Gilding flakes. I then matted a layer of Rich Green card cut to fit inside the gilded edge boarder.

Using more White card I embossed it with the Knotted Trellis Folder, inked on the back, the de-bossed side with my Versamark and heat embossed with Gold embossing powder, I then attached this in the center of my card.

I stamped my Santa onto White card with my Versamark and heat embossed it with Black embossing powder then coloured it in with Promarkers. I die cut it out with Gold Circles One and inked whilst still in the die with Crushed Olives distress ink. I attached this to the top right hand side of the card.

I die cut the 'Believe' out of Rich Green card, went over with a glue pen and covered it with Green Glitter. This did not look right sitting straight on the card as it was so I die cut some card with Labels Eighteen and inked it up with Crushed Olives again and placed the 'Believe' on top, this helped it stand out. I attached these to the bottom left hand side of the card.

To finish the card off I placed a little green gem in each of the knots that were showing.
