Welcome Christmas


Hi, thanks for coming to visit.  I've another card for you from the Welcome Christmas stamp set.  I can't seem to put it down just now and I have more cards to show you later.

This one is for LESS IS MORE which has a theme week and it's silhouette.  his stamp set is perfect for it and as my last post used the children sledging I thought I would have the family dressing the tree this time.

I stamped the family in Versamark first then into Basic Black and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I then  made a garland using the wreath stamp with Basic Grey.  I stamped again a couple of times without re inking to give some depth and because I liked the pattern.  I sponge daubed the edges with frost white Shimmer Paint then attached this to a square of Basic Black card.  Then stamped the sentiment in Basic Grey and attached to the Basic Black card blank.  The main panel was attached with Dimensionals.

Must dash, hope you like it.  Will be round to visit later. x
