Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Monochrome Christmas

For my CraftBubble Crimble card swap I decided to do a cas monochrome card. I had a lovely Christmas tree stamp from elzybells which I decided to use.


Hmm not to clear on the pic but there is stickles on the branches and a silver glitter on the baubles and star. I backed the image on black card  - I couldn't find black a4 anywhere so ended up buying a3 - complete pain in the bum to cut up!

Backed again with silver card, black ribbon and a charm added. Black gems from meiflower and a chocolate baroque snowflake that was free with a magazine.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Charisma Cardz - Christmas Makes
Ruby's Rainbow - Christmas with Non Traditional Colours
Emerald Faeries - Christmas
Top Tip Tuesday - Christmas

Hope you are all nearly sorted for Christmas
