Festive wishes

I think this is the last Art Deco Christmas cards (well, for this year anyway) with three glamorous ladies with the background made with pearlescent mauve card using an embossing folder  with glittered gold snowflakes added. This is an A5 landscape opening card blank.

This is for:

Merry little Christmas 29: anything Christmas goes
Incy wincy: Christmas
Country view December: anything Christmas
A place to start December: anything vintage
Creatalicious 201: anything goes + option: Christmas

Relax, indulge, enjoy!

I sent this to my granddaughter for her birthday on Saturday. I posted on the previous Monday, thinking that was enough time, but she only received it today.

The card blank was covered with a piece of Basic Grey paper, other pieces of paper being from the Craft House Cupcakes paper pack - this has such a lovely sheen to it which doesn't show up in the photo.

The 'topper' is an ATC made long, long ago when I used to exchange ATCs with groups (and keep at least one for myself). The image is Dotty at home bath time from Charmed Crafts and cards plus Dewdrop Crafts Bubble stamps.

I've received my set of embossing folders from Lisa Horton (from Create and Craft) and couldn't wait yesterday to try them out. I've tried quite a few of them already, but 'played' more with the sunflowers folder, using a piece of white pearlescent card, running another piece through the folder and cutting out the middle flower and colouring with chameleon pens. I've included two photos to try to show the depth of embossing and the shine. I raised up the middle flower with 3D foam.

I was tempted to add a greeting, but like it without ... and it can be used for any purpose.
