Baby's First Christmas.
First I must apologise, I have just not had the time to update my blog recently, so this may be a bit of a marathon session, just a good job we have an extra hour today!!
This card is my favourite of my creations, so far, this Christmas!
The image is, of course, a Lili of the Valley (TM) stamp which has been re-introduced recently as there was uproar when it was discontinued, you can see why, it is simply gorgeous.
I cannot take credit for the over all design of this card, I have tweaked it from a card I saw on the Lili of the Valley (TM) site, thanks girls!
I took a A5 base card and covered it with a background paper from a pack of papers I got last year in a kit from Crafters Companion (TM).
I used some polka dot tape from Ikea (TM) to break up the background a little.
I used a gold piece of card and embossed it and used some Ranger Tim Holtz (TM) distress ink on it to give a little interest.
The stamped image is mounted on to red and blue card and coloured in using both Promarkers (TM) and Aquamarkers (TM) and enhanced with a little glitter on the hat and the reindeer horns.
The stamped image was then placed on a doily.
I cut some trees out of foam and decorated them with sequins and die cut a sentiment on blue card.
I love this card...now I just have to look for somone who has a little person who is celebrating their first Chrsitmas this year!!
Hope you like it!!
