Have yourself a merry little Christmas

Hello peeps I hope you are all fine and dandy and all is well. I thought I would share another of the cards I made last week, I still have a few more to do oh well I’ll do my best.

So I will get straight to it. This one hasn’t been made for family members but I still wanted it to be a stylish card with thought and care put into it.
As is per usual the card is 8x8” and I have again gone for clean and simple look I have used for most (all) my Christmas cards this year
The paper again I think is from pixel scrapper but please don’t hold me to it as really can’t remember as I didn’t make notes and I do have some digital papers where I didn’t file them under the creators name (way back when)

Anyhoo I printed the images are of course from Mo Manning I have merged 2 images again from the ragged collection I have used Kelly and Martha   I have to say Martha is one of my favourites I just love the expression on her face she’s adorable, anyway back to it I printed them off together with the sentiment which is from MCS. I then coloured the image in using my polychrome pencils then I distressed and inked the edges in shabby shutters DI and the paper in crushed olive DI.

I then used the dies from memory box and I cut them out on green pearlised card then frantaged them before adding a gem and sticking to the card.

I decided to colour the images for the insert keeping them separate and one for each page again coloured with polychromo pencils and added a verse to finish off

And there you have it I hope you like it and I will see very soon with another one but until then have a great week and take care
