Presents For Two

Challenges

Simon Says (17) - Christmas In August

Dutch Dare (58) - Christmas In August

Moving Along With The Times (9) - Sketch

Ooh La La (35) - Sparkly Black & White Christmas

For this card I am using one of the gorgeous new designer stamps by Chris Gaisey. There are four Christmas Teddy designs now available from Lili Of The Valley for just £3.50 each. They are also available as pre-cut diecuts with different size images on each sheet. Why not hurry over to LOTV and see all the new designs. To go to the shop click here.

For this card I covered the base card with patterned paper which I added glitter glue to. I then cut a strip of white card, scalloped the edges with a border punch and placed this on top. I stamped and coloured the image with pencils, layered it using nesties and added glitter glue to the hat and parcel ribbons. (The glitter glue unfortunately doesn't show up very well on the computer but I can assure you it's there). I placed the image on top of the white strip using foam pads. Next I added the silver glitter ribbon down the side and finally added a couple of black snowflakes and gems. An unsual colour scheme for Christmas, but I like it.
