Papertake weekly challenge!

Well I had a very productive day yesterday (craft wise), what with it being craft day on QVC and my DO work. I had some lovely craft time and managed to make another 4 christmas cards. This one was made for this weeks papertake weekly challenge, following their sketch.

Image is one of my new Elzybells christmas stamps which I just love! Coloured with my whispers pens, snowtex added for that dimentional snow effect along with glamour dust for added sparkle. I have also addedd 3d clear gloss onto his coat buttons. The background CS is from the new papermania coredinations range and has been embossed with the snowflakes folder and distressed with an emery board to highlight them! Stitching done with my sewing machine (I'm starting to get the hang of this!). Patterned paper is from the new dovecraft winter wonderland paper pack. Sentiment is from a studio G clear set. Image cut with my nestabilities and matted onto scalloped glitter card. For the finishing touch I have added a felt snowflake embellishment which I have just bought from The Range, 99p for a sheet of 10!

Well back to work today. I'm having craft withdrawal already! At least it will be a cheaper day for me, as I spent a fortune on QVC yesterday! Have a good day everyone!

Oooh Vicky, I love this. The stitching looks fab. I really want to do more of this on my cards, it's just such a chore to get the sewing machine out each time, perhaps I should just do a job lot in one go.sue.x
