Peace & Joy
Another Christmas card done today to cover challenges
365 Cards Day 220 - 'In Stitches' to use cross stitch on the card
Simon Says - Colour Combo 'Red & Green'
Winter Wonderland #19 - Sleighbells Ring
I am starting to enjoy making the Christmas cards now as the weather was so awful today the heating came on so I felt wintery :D
Red base card topped with 'Bug' snowflake embossed white card.
A piece of green card out of bits box I edged with my Fiskars border punch and mounted a piece of scrap Christmas stripey paper on top finished off with rik rak ribbon.
The image is a download from Pink Petticoat 'Doodle-icious Christmas' and I cut around it with my Woodware scallop punch.
I frinished the card off with a little bit of Christmas sparkle by putting a few gems here and there on the snowflakes
My meagre effort of cross stitching was to draw my stitches around the border.
I would have loved to have done some real cross stitching for this, as I spent many years doing it but my thumb joints are now past their best with OA so I resisted the urge.
