I love Christmas and all the preparations. I've been asked to make a card for a special couple, loved making this card, so this is the one I am sharing for my post this week.

The Father Christmas image has come from Hunkydorys Third Little Book of Christmas, I've layered the image onto Trimcraft's Silent Night paper, edged it with Sahara Sand ink (Stampin Up!) and mounted it on a piece of silver mirri card.

The sentiment has been printed onto white card stock and I used a circle punch then edged it with ink and placed it in the centre of a silver mirri die cut .

I also added another paper from the Silent Night paper pad, again edged with ink and used it as a layer to mount the main sentiment onto.

The amazing holly is a die cut from Tattered Lace - Christmas Flowers. I die cut them and inked them to give a little shading then used Autumn Red nuvo crystal drops on the berries and sprinkled them with Dovecraft ultrafine red glitter. Once the drops had set and excess glitter removed I was able to shape them with a bone folder.

Then I added the personalisation and a little bit more holly.

The bottom layer of the card is from the Trimcraft paper pad, it has glittered areas on it and really gives the base of the card a luxury finish.

I'm pleased how this turned out. Hope you like it too.
