Good evening everyone
I hope you have had a fantastic day
I've been doing Christmas cards today again, here is one of them
It's an A5 landscape card. 


I made it by first cutting to size some silver mirri and rounded the corners, I measured some smoky grey paper from the 'Christmas Whisper' 12"x 12" paper pad by Hobbycraft, using the 
'Holly Panel' stamp by 'Inkylicious' I stamped randomly with VersaMark, added white embossing power and heat embossed.
For the topper I used the 'Snowy Postcard' stamp by 'Stampendous' I stamped using VersaMark, silver embossing powder and heat embossed. I Distressed around the edge using the 'Weathered Wood' Distress Ink and added some 'Iced Snow' Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels to the roof tops etc on the image.
I mat and layered the image onto silver mirri.
I made the embellishments by die cutting the poinsettia's using the 'Medium Poinsettia' die by 'Britannia' and added some of the Iced Snow Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels and added some silver faux gems. I used the 'Poinsettia Cluster' die by 'Sue Wilson' to cut out the swirl underneath the poinsettia out of silver mirri.

Anyway, onto today's make is

Candle Decoration


Good afternoon everyone
I hope your having a great day.

My project today is a Christmas decoration.


I made it by starting off with the base, a 'log slice' that I got from 'Hobbycraft', it was a pack of four, I sanded it just till it was smooth.
A had a glass tube in my stash, no idea where it came from but I tend to collect things like this lol you never know when they will come in handy.
I added some pine stems which I cut off an old wreath that I have just for things like this, added some glittered berries, I glittered a pine cone and attached that.
The wood ball I have no idea, again, where it come from but it was in my stash.
To finish off I added some cinnamon sticks and a wood bark star which I got from 'Baker Ross' 

I hope you like it.
