All I want for Christmas......

Hello again....!

Two posts on one day! That must be a miracle if ever I knew one... lol.. but I just wanted to share this little creation with you. 

I've been busy over the weekend catching up with a few family orders for Christmas cards, and even had time to do my personal family ones!! At least the kids won't feel too left out now.. lol.  

I also had time to make this one - a cute little stamp I bought last month to make the hubby's Christmas card.

I began by choosing the papers I wanted to use so I could match up the colours for the stamped image. This makes it so much easier (when I remember to do it!)... lol.

I layered up the papers onto mirror card, but opted for red so it didn't look too girly. I thought red gave the card a little bit of bling, but also kept it quite masculine.

Decoration was kept quite simple with a little poinsettia and a holly branch die cut. What did I do without this die?!

I finished the card off with a little bit of liquid applique and a dusting of glitter...

I hope you like today's little share, I'm not sure if I'll get back for the next few days as I have some magasine bits to work through, so please check back - I'll update when I can!

Happy Crafting!!!
