CHNC challenge 482


This is my design card for my CHNC challenge 482 -  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  'inspired by a Christmas carol or song'.

For my A5 black tent style card blank I used one of the lovely cut n emboss folders from Crafter's Companion, cutting and embossing with a piece of gold mirror card mounted on to a background of matt gold. This was inspired, of course, by the lovely Christmas carol, Hark the herald angels sing.

The background paper with music on it (difficult to see here, but fine irl) from a Love to Craft paper pad from Poundland, was matted on to the green card blank, wrapped with two pieces of striped grosgrain ribbon. The gold foiled green sentiment panel is a Kanban one from a set some years ago. I then added the gold foiled reindeer, the decoupaged white Christmas rose and the couple of glittered holly stickers.
