Salt: O holy night

Where do the days go to? The last fortnight has whizzed by - it's time for a new Salt challenge already. This time Lythan chose the topic 'O holy night'. Please visit Salt to see what she has to say and also to see the lovely artwork of the rest of the team.

I hadn't yet made a Christmas card for my mum and wanted to do something a bit special for her, so this was an opportunity to use the topic of 'O holy night'. I used two large square cards to make a tri-fold one. I used a mixture of papers, including the English Paper Company and DCWV, and the stamped image on the front is a Papermania one I bought last year. I used that stamp quite a lot then, but this is the first use of it this year. The left and right sides of the middle have vellum stuck to them (using my xyron), but the stars are hardly visible on the photo. The words on the front are, of course, from the carol 'O holy night'.

Mum has already received the card and seemed pleased with it.

Thank you Carol and Sue - and Tash for organising.

Today I received this bag of alphabet letters that have been die cut from the funky brush alphabet - now, who do I know that has that alpha set?
