Festive 48 - Week 8
Week 8, and I'm looking around the Christmas card challenges to help me keep coming up with ideas. This week Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge had the theme 'reindeer' and a couple of their DT linked up to my last linky. (Thank you!) They used cute reindeers so I thought I'd do something different.
I made a background by sponging red and green inks, then stamped it with stamps from a set of stamps I got free with a magazine ages ago. Then I sprayed it with glitter varnish ( and nearly knocked myself out with the fumes!) .
I mounted it on patterned mirror card ( can you spot me in the reflection?) and added die-cut holly with liquid pearl berries.
Just to recap, I have challenged myself to make a Christmas card every week , and post it here (to make sure I do it!) . If I do this, by the beginning of December I will have 48 Christmas cards. I have also issued an invitation to anyone who would like to join me.
Thank you to everyone who's joined me so far. I love seeing your cards.
As well as Holly Jolly Christmas , I'd also like to enter
