Shabby Christmas Card - Holly - and Christmas Greetings

This was the second of my shabby seasonal stand up cards which has almost the same technique as the first one I made ( which you can find here if you missed it).

I did a make and take at Ministry of Mixology and created a shabby vintage card which you can see here. The boards were cut for me by Di at Tando Creative and I have been using to make a set of cards to put into the Pack House.

I dribbled and daubed some watery washes over the chalk paints to create some contrast and depth of colour.

I added Tim's easel die-cut as the stand .......

... and used this die-cut for the sentiment, cut from textured card like core'dinations, sanded and inked.

Well the big day has arrived, I hope it is one filled with love, happiness and some quiet peaceful moments for reflection.


My Christmas tree this year in the conservatory, I love it.

Ella, my 11 year old Granddaughter on stage at the Yvonne Arnaud theatre in Guildford in their pantomime for this year - Dick Whittington.

So proud of her.

And from me to you, with my family and Santa, I wish you a very 
Merry Christmas.
