Wishing you a cool Yule

Hello crafty peeps I hope you’re all fine and dandy and had a great weekend all be it a chilly one.
Well while I have Mrs Mojo under lock and key I am making her earn her keep and make up for the lost crafty time she caused me(tut tut tut) and got another Christmas card done so that’s another one off my list.
I love Make it Crafty Christmas images (not just the Christmas image but especially the cheeky Santa’s and the wicked elves.

For this card I have gone with an A5 card blank and used  gorgeous red paper with snowflakes on but I have no idea where I got it from (sorry) I distressed the edges(of course) then added fired brick distress ink.

I added a length of white ribbon with stars on across the middle just to add a little something.
The image is called Aussie Santa and I have coloured him with a mix of Pablo pencils(skin mainly) prisma Polychromo and luminance pencils. Then making a mask of the image I used various blues and brownish Distress inks to create my background.

The sentiment I made while printing off the image just using a couple of different fonts then cut the whole thing out and added fired brick to the edges. Finally to finish off the outside I added a couple of die cut stars magazine freebies (yayyy love freebies) and some hessian threads tied in a scruffy bow.

I used the same paper for the insert bringing the image through to tie it all together then added another quick sentiment to finish off and Tah-Dah all done.

Hope you like it and hopefully I’ll see you again real soon with some more makes   


Happy Crafting
