Holly and Mistletoe


 Yes I do have a Penny Black card this Saturday, I used that gorgeous Holly and Mistletoe stamp. Now I've used silver embossing on a previous card so this time I thought I would use white on Kraft card, think I may have use black on both Kraft and white to see how it turns out now.
I just added some colour with my pencil but it is hard there's not much space that isn't embossed and the pencils do change the colour of the white another reason to use black or brown ink I suppose.
I've been going through some scraps of Christmas paper and found the green and beige papers and thought it would work well with the Kraft they could be Cosmo Cricket but they're old.

The finishing touches I used a gem and pearls and since I stamped two in case I made a mistake I thought I would use it anyway and the red dotty paper just breaks down the Kraft colour. Even though I used a clear sentiment stamp I still managed to stamp it crooked.
I was hoping to join in the Cyber Crop on UKS but because I was unwell I so behind on my cards usually I try to be at least a week in front of any DT obligations but I still haven't made them for next week so thats what I will be doing this weekend but I have made a card for tomorrow if the glossy accents dry, come to think about it I haven't used it yet.

  17. oh my what a stunning stamp! and I love it embossed in white - lends a frosty feel that's perfect for the festive season. The little touches of colour make it pop - might be hard work but so worth it. Love both these cards, but the green and kraft version is my favourite. take care, hugs, annie x

  42. I have observed that in the world today, video games include the latest fad with children of all ages. Periodically it may be extremely hard to drag young kids away from the games. If you want the best of both worlds, there are several educational activities for kids. Good post.
