A holly jolly Christmas

I said there would be a few more Christmas cards to come. They're all in the post now so I hope the recipients like them. This one is very mixed media in style and follows the theme of using up some of those precious designer papers we tend to stash away. Like the last one it also has a media board background panel painted, stamped with flitter glue and foils added. I also splattered it with white gesso to it a snowy feel.

As the background paper has some beautifully distressed brown holly on it, I followed the theme and added brown and white winter foliage .........

... with some red gems for berries .......

....... a cut out ornament from more patterned papers and a Tim framed sentiment.

Two people received one of these as I doubled up the design.

I have now just got to wrap some presents to put under the trees and get a bit of baking done and then I am ready for the weekend. Only 6 more sleeps to the big day!

Enjoy your week.
