Gently does it

Challenge 137 on Cute card Thursday is 'gently does it' - using vellum, parchment or tissue.

I've used some white vellum with red flowers which now looks pink because it is mounted on to a red card.

I love robins on Christmas cards and this is for Alphabet B for birds.

It's also for:

Christmas day lunch invitation

Today's Oh Alice chapter 38 is to use a ticket, so I personalised one for Christmas Day Lunch using Fake Concert Ticket Generator. I've used quite a large photo, so am linking for Frosted designs: 'use up large photos'.

This was produced digitally, so I'm linking for Bee crafty 42: Christmas 2.

Deck the halls

It was very hard to get a photo of this card, even in daylight without a flash, because the holly mirri card is so reflective - the background of it is actually a foiled pale green.

I can't remember what the background paper is - some I had left over from original 12 x 12 sheet.

For Winter wonderland 'sing a Christmas carol' challenge this week, the carol for this card, of course, is 'Deck the halls ...', also for Dezinaworld 'song/dance/music' - update: suddenly realised that for this challenge I should have used a Dezina image - d'oh! - will be back later with one!

Red and gold

Today's challenge 108 on Secret Crafter Saturday calls for 'red and gold'.

The main background paper was a magazine freebie and the strip of cream and gold foiled card was from a QVC kit from last year. The red and gold frame is from a kit bought this year - the vintage image, foiled with gold, is recycled. This image is good for Kaboodle 43 'make it vintage', CCEE 1044 'winter scene' and ABC Christmas 'W for winter wonderland'.
