Merry Christmas Grandma!

Evening all! I though I'd show you tonight the christmas card I have made for my grandma. She's not really a cute image sort of person so I wanted to pick a lovely christmas image that has a vintage feel. I had a look through my stamp collection and came up with this one!

The santa collage stamp is by rubber stampede and has been stamped onto acetate with black stazon. I put some irredecent glitter card behind the acetate before framing with a gold mirri card frame, embossed with swiss dots folder. Photo corner is from a Brenda pinnick kit. The DP is from dovecraft traditional christmas pack. The burgundy CS has been embossd with snowflakes folder. Ribbon is Anita's. Stitching around edge of card was done on my sewing machine. Greeting is from a See D's set. I also decorated the inside of the card as the base CS is burgundy and you wouldn't be able to see the writing.

Papers are from HOTP christmas kit I got from QVC last year and cream cardstock has been distressed around the edges with a bronze inkpad. I hope she likes it!

Only 14 days left until christmas and I'm really starting to feel the pressure now. Still got my OH's christmas card to make, quite a few presents to buy and lots to wrap! Where will I find the time?! But in between all that I promise to try and find time to visit you all!

Thanks for stopping by, especially as we're all so busy at the moment!

Hugs, Vicky x
