I have a Christmas card to share, it's actually from my draft folder - and no, it's not the last... sigh.
I'm having a bit of a problem with my pictures looking "flat", I can't work out why but we'll just have to live with it for the time being as life is super busy and I don't have time to dedicate to sorting it! It's lucky I'm here at all really; we were given a new modem by our ISP - nothing wrong with our old one, they're upgrading the network and old faithful wouldn't have been able to keep up, as it's their doing we get a free modem... but anyone who has ever had anything to do with computers KNOWS what I mean when I say that the "simple" and "easy" instructions, while not too bad were NOT simple or easy; or more to the point the "Troubleshooting" page had to come out and the connection's been a bit iffy - something that WASN'T a problem prior to said "upgrade", sigh
Anyway onto my card. Simple little number (my Christmas cards generally are, lol) using the oh-so-sweet image Wrynn Angel from Tiddly Inks. I coloured with Copics, with some Prismacolor details, and added Stickles to the halo.
The "joy" is either a Sizzix or Memory Box die, cut in green card then glittered up with Stickles. The image panel has a gold foil mat cut using a Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangle die. The papers are from Kaisercraft, I added a smudging of gold ink around the edges of all panels to soften the overall effect.
As always I finished the inside of the card with elements from the front, the sentiment (stamped in gold, not that it looks gold in the pic!) is one - actually two, the sentiment and the frame are two stamps - of my favourite Christmas sets from the sadly now defunct Tickled Pink Stamps.
That's it for today's card, it was really quite sweet in real life, I'll have to address these photography issues! I'll be entering my card in the following challenges
