I always tend to be on the last minute with everything ... and last night I finally sat down to make mum & dad's Christmas card. I had already made a card that I thought I would send, but then decided against it as I wanted one that was more personalised plus I wanted to make them a "heartwarming" card as they have had an incredibly difficult year. Obviously I couldn't leave it any longer as the last posting date is tomorrow, so I set to work.
Having made the card I have decided to enter it into 2 challenges: Cute Card Thursday is an open theme this week, and also BasicGrey Challenge #15 which is Going Green (recycling) - the sparkly holographic card used to die cut the letters is taken from an Asda tissue box!!
I used: main image is PB "The night before Christmas", coloured with watercolour pencils and Twinkling H2O's, and the fluffy bits of Santa's hat decorated with white peewee glitter; sentiment is also by Penny Black; background papers are all BasicGrey "Figgy Pudding" (one of them may be "Dasher"); letters are diecut using Cuttlebug "Hippie Chick" alphabet; flowers are Prima Christmas bubble; ribbon and gems from my stash.
