Christmas



Better late than never. This is my first challenge card for a good few days, due to enforced rest by my doctor. The card is for the challenge set by
My Time to Craft which is for Christmas. I have to admit to the fact that this is my very first Christmas card this year, but then again I have always been a last minute type of person and very often find that I work better under pressure.
For this card I scored some vertical lines on a tent fold square card. I got this idea from Jak of Crafters Kitchen and I hope she doesn't mind me using her idea. I put some silk mirri gold card from Joanna Sheen into a snowflake Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. I then stamped the penguins from Penny Black but I have no idea when or where I bought the stamp. I used tombow pens to colour the bonnets, beaks and feet and then mounted them onto some red holographic card from my stash. I finished the card with a Happy Christmas peel-0ff and then tied some of Joanna Sheen's beautiful organza ribbon in gold and red around the top. I hope you like it. Beryl
