Funky Christmas

Hi everyone!. I'd just like to say thank you for all the lovely comments you've all been leaving me recently, its much appreciated & I'm still working my way around catching up with what you've all been up to as well.
Also, a big hello & welcome to my new followers!
Thank you for following me & taking the time to visit.

Now, onto today's card.
It's one I made a while ago when I was trying to get into the swing of making Christmas cards.
It's 8 x 8 on a scalloped card blank & features 2 stamps from Indigoblu. 
Funky Circles Tree & Merry Christmas dinky.


As you can see, I've gone for the traditional red, green & gold Christmas colours.
I stamped the tree in Evergreen Bough distress ink onto white card & heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
I then cut around the tree & inked it with Festive Berries distress ink.
I stamped just the star at the top of the tree with flitter glue, applied gold gilding flake, cut it out & stuck it over the original star with 3d foam.
Next I stamped the Merry Christmas dinky with flitter glue onto red card & applied gold gilding flakes.
I then mat & layered this onto green card, the edges of which I'd lightly touched with glue & gilded.
I gilded the edge of some red card & attached the tree to the left with 3d foam & the sentiment to the right.


I stamped the funky tree around the edges of a piece of white card with flitter glue & once gilded inked with the red distress ink as before.
This was then mat & layered onto red & then green card & the whole lot was mounted onto the card blank.



The final touches are a gold organza ribbon bow & red, green & gold gems in the circles on the tree.

Right, I'm off to bed. A busy day tomorrow. Daisy has her first Harvest Festival in the morning & then its busy, busy pricing up several deliveries that arrived in the shop today.
Christmas is definitely on it's way!
