CHNC challenge 570

This is my design card for my CHNC challenge 570 -  please click on the link to find out what it's all about and I hope you'll be able to join in with your Christmas designs - anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the optional theme of  'something beginning with the letter R'.

I created the background for my card using the lovely slimline pine cones 3D embossing folder from Lisa Horton, blrushing brown corduroy distress ink over the pine cones, matting on to a piece of red mirror card and adding the cute 3D felt reindeer from The Works and the Merry Christmas sentiment, adding on to a DL card blank.

CHNC challenge 569

This is my design card for my CHNC challenge 569 -  please click on the link to find out what it's all about and I hope you'll be able to join in with your Christmas designs - anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the optional theme of  'use some glitter'.

The background of my card is a piece of paper from a pad bought long ago in Poundland. I stamped the lovely Penny Black caroling penguins with versamark onyx black and heat embossed using detail black powder. I used a quicky glue pen for the fluffy areas on the hats, adding some sparkly glitter. I did just a bit of colouring with alcohol markers and die cut with a todo decorative oval, using a large one to create a mat with an offcut of red pearlescent card with gold glitter. I added two snippets of gold glitter tape that had been left over from a previous make. The sentiment was created with my dymo letratag label maker.
