Hello my crafting friends, so good of you to come and join me today. I make no apologies for more Christmas cards as I have decided to start making this years now so there will be quite a few to come throughout the year lol!

Now I may be making this years cards now but todays' post is the Christmas card I made for my Father-in-Law, this was his first Christmas since my Mother-in-Law died earlier in the year and she always loved my cards but I did not wish to make anything to fancy but it had to look a bit masculine so I went along with Sheena's Noel stamp and created this...

I started by inking up the background using DI Chipped Sapphire and Scattered Straw onto White hammered Card mixing together a little where they meet. I then stamped the Noel stamp on the bottom and added a little sparkle to the star and sky. 
To finish the card I matted it up onto Gold texture card and the basic White card. 

Items Used:

White Base Card
White Hammer Card
Gold Texture Card
Sheena Douglass Little Bit Festive Noel Stamp
Tim Holtz Distress Inks Chipped Sapphire & Scattered Straw
Stazon Ink Pad Black
Glue Pen
Art Deco Glamour Dust
