Tidings of Comfort and Joy

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Candy Stripe Embossing Folder.

I cut the Couture Creations Santa's Reindeer Die out of Vintage Gold Card twice and added 3mm Red Pearls to some of the baubles hanging from the reindeers antlers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Peace on Earth Stamp Set onto Vintage Gold Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I split the sentiment down into 3 pieces.

I assembled the card as shown piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Phill Martin is continuing with his One Day Special on Hochanda at 9am, 12noon, 4pm and 7pm. John Lockwood also has shows today at 11am, 2pm and 6pm with some Watercolour Stamping. Double trouble!

 Thanks for stopping by.

    Love this card it's gorgeous. Oh dear, both John and Phill on Hochanda today. As you've said double trouble , but that's to our bank accounts I might add. They should have asked you as well to keep them in order.

  24. Lovely idea Julia, simple but stunning...my kind of card...luv Ursula xx

  25. Hi Julia, I love this card! It's so quirky and fun and the first thing I imagined was all the reindeers with red noses! But then I had to be sensible as there can't be six Rudolphs...lol :) x Love the card and also love the EF too......plus doing two lots of the reindeers you can hide their missing legs too! "Thank you Julia" xx Love Karen xx Oooooo and the double trouble could also be the terrible twosome! lol! x

  26. Hi Julia lovely card great ideas. Been good day watching all the shows
