Silent Night

Can you believe it, only 3 more sleeps 'til the big day.

I have well and truly broken the promise I made to myself early this year to NOT
buy anymore dies. You all know what I mean don't you...there are just so many
beautiful ones out there, and each seem to be prettier than ever.

This card uses 3 such dies...the gorgeous 'Silent Night', the very versatile star 
background, and the mini poinsettia. I used 3D tape to raise the top layer to
allow more of the embossed layer to be seen.

A closer look at the elegant 'Silent Night' which I adhered to a piece of
JAC paper, then sprinkled fine glitter on that. Finally I adhered that to
the gold matting paper.

I sponged the edges of all the poinsettia petals with Aged Mahogany 
distress ink. The centres are punched from scraps of gold glitter card.
The white foliage has been lightly sponged with Iced Spruce distress ink.

I have quite a few Christmas cards in my drafts, so hopefully in the next few weeks (although Christmas will be long gone) I may be able to make time to show them to you...I am taking a few weeks off from duty at the Fort.

Hopefully all your Christmas preps are more advanced than mine.
Until next time, thank you for visiting,
Jennifer.  xx
