Love Christmas

A found relative, some glitter, bits and bobs and a card is born.
Another of my red, white and kraft designs for this year, I seem to be on a roll, I just love these colours.
The supplies consist of mostly Tim Holtz products, his merriment papers, a gorgeous vintage photo from the occasions found relatives pack, the pediment die, festive berries glitter and the trellis framework.

A few more details can be found over on the Country View Crafts project blog if you have time to pop over.

I hope your week is going well, thanks for stopping by.

Hi everyone, it’s Brenda again with another Christmas card for you.
This colour combination has really captured me this year and I have made several cards in this palette.
The fabulous occasions found relatives pack by Tim Holtz has these gorgeous vintage photos and I have combined this one with the pediments die and the festive berries distress glitter. The clear domes are from my own supplies and have pieces of the merriment papers glued underneath.
The love banner was made using a stamp and die from the framed silhouettes Framelits set and I stamped the word using my own small stick letter stamps. Christmas comes from the holiday words script thinlits dies using the stick it paper to adhere it to the card.
The lamp post was cut last year and not used and the leaves are from the festive greenery strip die. The trellis framework die-cut creates some interest and texture in the background.
How are you doing with your Christmas cards? I still have quite a few to make so I am sure you will be seeing more of them from me before the big day.

Absolutely charming, Brenda - the vintage street lamp looks so cool, and the krafty elements are great with the bold reds. Looking forward to seeing more as I'm catching up...
