Christmas Wishes for You

Hello my crafting friends, hope this finds you all safe and well. Not long to go and the first month is over my 'o' my!

Now for todays post  I have another Christmas card for you.

I started by folding a sheet of Centura Pearl Pastel Blue card in half to make and A5 size card then cut a piece of White card and Periwinkle Blue card to size for matting and layering. I distressed the edges on both of these using a pair of scissors.

In the middle of the Blue card I die cut a circle out then stamped my Christmas Wishes sentiment using Stazon Jet Black onto the White card underneath so it showed through the aperture.

On the Blue card I stamped a musical melody across the top with my Versamark ink pad then heat embossed with White embossing powder. I then ran the Blue card  through a snowflake embossing folder to give it some texture.

I die cut the Peace sentiment twice out of Silver miri card and cut it down so I trimmed off the 'Peace' word  and placed the decorative edges around the circle aperture. 

In my stash I already had some Poinsettias, snowflakes,  a sleigh and reindeer, the sleigh and reindeer I had inked with my Versamark then covered with Glamour dust to add some sparkle.  All these I placed on to the card as seen.

I had some beads on wire in my stash that were recycled from some old Christmas crackers so I placed them on the card randomly. To finish the card I added some snow writer all around the edges and on the Poinsettias.

There may be a lot going on in this card but I think it works, its different anyhow lol!
