This week at Lili Of The Valley we would like to see you make a 'Christmas Card For Someone Special' be it mum, dad, brother, sister, friend or anyone else who is special to you.

I have made a quick and easy card from scraps of card for one of my friends. Starting with a white base card I added a gold layer followed by a music embossed white layer. Next I stamped the music sheet with grey ink and placed on top. I then cut a strip of swirl embossed white card and added some ribbon that I recycled from a gift, inked the edges and placed across the bottom of the card. The image has been coloured with promarkers and glitter. Having cut it out with nesties I then stamped the words onto it before layering with gold card also cut with nesties. A circular sentiment backed with gold card finishes the card. Told you it was quick, thanks for looking.
