No Patterned Papers…..honest!


Well, since we are suddenly seeing lists of adverts containing snowy scenes and heart felt moments, there can be no denying that Christmas is on it's way, now that Halloween and Bonfire Night are over!

So of course most of my cards will be of a Christmassy nature and this one is no exception.

This card is made entirely out of stamp work using some small Denami Fern and Pine Cone stamps to create the backing layer and also the festive garland.

The stocking is from Stamp Addicts and I stamped and decoupaged it three times, to 'hang' them on the garland.

I have to say, stamping away very randomly with the little stamps is really fun and you quickly see a pattern building up so it is very rewarding - I highly recommend it!

In line with the coming season there are some great Christmas challenges out there, so here are some that I would like to enter today.
