God Jul!

God Jul, indeed!

No... I'm not learning a new language! Haven't got time for that this year. Plus... I'm still learning English, not to mention being sooo behind on everything, it's scary! In fact, I just realised I haven't posted my Christmas Card Club project! Eeeek!

Enough idle chit chat, here's a card I made for the House of Cards blog hop. A couple of friends -Mynette and Monika - suggested I play along.... a couple of weeks ago. And with just a few hours before closing time I'm screeching in with my card. Here it is... a little late!

There's a mix of stamps on this card - the stag is from Chocolate Baroque's Snowy Scenes and the greeting is from Waltzing Mouse's Nutcracker Sweet.

For the background I did some embossing with LifeStyle's Whimsy folder and added a couple of silver eyelets. The greeting is stamped on a piece of vellum and to finish I tied a bow with some sheer iridescent ribbon.

I coloured the stag with Graph'It alcohol markers. I layered with blues and silver Spellbinder die cuts. There's some sparkly Stickles Stardust on the bell and several dots of Silver Liquid Pearls for a wintery feel. And it's done!
