I am struggling with trying to juggle everything at the minute and so desperately want to spend some time crafting-I have my eye on the whole weekend coming up so fingers crossed nothing changes and I get a little 'me' time that I so desperately want!
I managed to make this card just recently with a freebie stamp set that came with a magazine last year and I never got round to using it as most of my Christmas cards last year were very last minute.com.
This year I was determined to do better and I have been making them since the summer holidays.
The image is coloured with Promarkers and the papers are a new set I bought from Nitwit as I was so very short on Christmas style papers. I thought if I treated myself to some lovely new papers it would inspire me to get some more Christmas cards made.
I fussy cut the image and layered him on an oval shape cut with a Nellie Snellen die, embossed with a freebie snowflake folder.
I added a tag bought from Poundland and some flowers bought from there too-I'm so glad I got them when I did as I've never seen them in any other store I've been in since. The little wooden snowflake was found in a shop on a weekend away in the summer. I added some glitter to his lantern and also on his hat and the sentiment is a clear stamp also from a magazine. I have been using so many digital elements just lately I really wanted to get back to using some physical stamps:
