Christmas Card, Envie and Tag..

Another lovely warm evening crafting my wee heart out in the shed tonight… it is bitter cold and frosty outside too!

I made an envelope first out of sheet music paper, it is machine stitched around the outside edge (the stitching is a bit wonky, but plan to fix it tomorrow night, after some sound advice from the lovely Mitzi and Susan) 🙂

then I made a card using Tim Holtz Festive resist kraft cardstock.. I also used the seasonal distress ink pads to colour the berries and holly.   There is a watered down white acrylic wash painted over the kraft paper to give it an old feel 🙂

Oh…. and i covered the berries in glossy accents, to accent them..

Next I made a tag using a No. 8 Inkssentials Tag, distress inks and tested out my new heat gun 😉

The little felt flower is the one I made the other night, made from felt and edged in german glass glitter..

If you have any questions just give me a shout and Thanks so much for dropping in 🙂
