Christmas Card Club #21: Carol Singers

The girls are back and this fortnight we have Sue P in pole position with a brand new theme: Carol Singers. Christmas wouldn't be the same without a sing-along, would it?

I decided on the is cute image from Polkadoodles Work & Play 5: Festive Hollybobs. In fact, I got all I needed to make this card from this CD!

The paper and embellishments are from the Hollybobs CD. I just did a load of fussy
cutting .... very therapeutic. For a little dimension (not too much because I want this to
be post-friendly) I added a few pale blue bling around the carollers, yellow liquid pearls
in the centre of the poinsettias and tied a twine bow around the gift box. 

Here's a close-up of the carollers. The photo is a little over-exposed.... just couldn't
get the lighting right yesterday. Of course, there's stitching... can't do without it! 

I wanted the inside to be fun and playful. So I thew in a couple of embellies from
the Hollybobs CD. The greeting is a die-cut from Britannia Dies.
