...a huge Christmas card


I just got my latest PTI order and it's release time again!! Ho hum.

I was so glad I ordered the First Fruits set - It is outstanding. - I jumped right in and made a Christmas card (surprise, surprise).

I knew I wanted to make a wreath image from the leaf stamp I love how the shape works repeated in a cricle. I used 4 different inks on the stamp so that my leaves would all look different.

I love how the stamping turned out but I'm less happy with the card itself, I'm off to try again!! I was in such a rush to put it up that I photographed it straight away - it's night here and I normally wait for daylight but it'll do for now.

The card base is a sheet of Pure poppy cardstock folded in half !!- the card is a little on the big side Lol but it actually looks ok in real life lol.

Hope it tickles.

  5. Great job coloring the images with different inkpads. Lovely card! You tempt me so much to add things to my cart, that I didn't even think of adding before. You are baaaad:-)

    Just a suggestion, for next time, you should leave the sentiment under peace and stamp that on the inside and you have a complete Christmas card. Don't have to worry about what to put on the inside.
