For today's card I used stamps from WMS Nutcracker Sweet set. It not only has some cute images but also Christmas greetings in German, Dutch, Swedish and French. And since I live in mainland Europe, Christmas felicitations between friends and family are mostly in anything but English...except for the cards, of course! So this year, I plan to surprise a few people with vernacular versions to grace their mantle pieces.
My first card in the "series" (which suggests I have a plan... hahah!) is this rather unconventional card for an unconventional friend. I'm using the sketch from Christmas Challenges #43. Since my friend's fave colour is purple I'm also linking my card to 365 Cards day 209: "Colour Me Purple", Crafty Bloggers Network #3: "Purple" and Creative Card Crew #20: "Purple". The sparkle and bling were inspired by Sparkles Christmas Challenge #20.
Here's my card:
|St Nick and the sentiment in German are by WMS. (I really need to sort out my lighting. The colours are more vibrant than seen in the photos).|
|On the inside, I stamped swags and added some bling.|
