Christmas Scene


Well here we are almost at the end of July and lots of Christmas cards needing to be made. I sold pretty well at the craft fair on Saturday and with 11 more booked from Sep-early Dec I am going to need a lot more stock. I hardly have any made for myself to send either. I bought this new stamp at Summer Crafting. It is from Woodware and has been coloured with Copics. I used lots of Stickles to give a thick coating of snow and used my Wink of Stella brush on the holly leaves. The paper is Dovecraft Tis the Season. I added a Bo Bunnt sentiment, Hobbycraft postbox topper and some Woodware punched holly leaves and card candi also brushed with Wink of Stella.
