Wow! With Christmas rapidly approaching, I thought it was a good idea to make another Christmas card!

I started by colouring a panel of white card with Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Dust in Lava Red!

Once dry it was die cut using SSS Clustered Leaves die and again from vellum. Then the matching SSS – Outline Clustered Leaves die was cut from white card.

A panel was embossed using Altnew – 3D EF – Geo Steps in white and attached to the card front.

The leaves were then attached by the stems while the leaves were pinched for dimension. The white outlines were added on top and then the vellum.

As all the leaves look to be floating it gives the panel more the look of real leaves.

The Merry Christmas die cut from was cut from the coloured panel and layered on white before being added.

Time to head over to our blog to check out the great work by the rest of the Design Team!

I look forward to seeing what you create this month!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Have a good day, stay safe and wishing you a very Happy New Year!

Cheers

Helen

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
