Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Hope you are all enjoying the build up to the festivities. I am definitely enjoying December this year. Today I have a Christmas card for you using the Geometric Ornament from Katzelkraft.
I began by adding stencilling to a piece of white card using Tim Holtz Christmas Layering Stencil and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, applying the same ink to the edges for definition. I then added a second layer to my card stencilled with the Holiday Knit stencil and Fired Brick Distress Ink.
I then inked the Geometric Ornament with Vermillion and touches of Potting Soil Archival Ink and stamped onto the bottom corner of the card. I love how the stencilled lettering is still visible behind the ornament.
I die cut a star from white card, coloured with Fired Brick Distress Ink, added a Chitchat sticker to the top and added to the top corner of my card. I also die cut a mini tag from white card, stamped Winter and 25 onto the tag and fastened to my twine bow and included a Christmas button to the centre for added interest. I then added the design to a white card adding stencilled stars to the background.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
