Happy Christmas to you all. Hope you enjoy the Festive Season!
I had a lovely lunch with my Mom and Dad yesterday. If you're in the Stourbridge/Bromsgrove area, I highly recommend the Bell at Broughton. Mom and I had a couple of lovely meals there in August too when my Dad was in hospital.
I confess that I was pretty tired when I got home yesterday as it's 100 miles each way to my parents house plus I ran them to the pub and back. Doing One Day Specials on Hochanda kind of leaves you feeling a bit jet lagged the day after and quite often with a headache. I won't be setting an alarm this morning that's for sure!
Sorry, I don't exactly have a Christmas card to share today but it does feature a Christmas Justrite Background so almost there!
Coconut White Card through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the Creative Expressions Wild Roses Embossing Folder. I matted it onto Black Card and added to a Coconut White Card Blank.
For the panels, I popped some CS Flake & Glitter Glue onto a piece of Wax Paper. I picked it up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and used it to ink up the Justrite Holly Frame Background Stamp. I stamped it onto Coconut White Card leaving the stamp on the card no more than 3 seconds so as not to tear the card. I cleaned my stamp under a cold tap and then went back to my stamped image. I added CS Persian Dawn Gilding Flakes. I removed the excess using a piece of Rubit Scrubit.
I trimmed the background and cut into 3 panels which I matted onto Black Card. I added them to my background as shown.
Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Coconut White Card. I peeled away the other backing sheet and added Persian Dawn Gilding Flakes. I removed the excess using Rubit Scrubit. I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Special Gifts Vintage Labels Twenty-Nine onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut die #3 from Sue Wilson's Belgian Background Die Set from my gilded card. I cut dies #2 and #3 from the same set out of the card stamped with my sentiment and glued it to my gilded piece. I matted onto Black Card, added Mounting Cushion to the back and popped onto my card as shown.
I added a couple of Craft Consortium Pearl Heart Chain Embellishments to the sentiment panel and a Craft Consortium Pearl to each corner of my background.
Have a Great Day.
Thanks for stopping by.
