Christmas Joy


The 1st of December? Already??!! Didn't that creep up on us a bit quickly?! I'm actually starting to feel a bit Christmassy now, which is kinda nice :)

This card is for the current Artygirlz challenge - to create a project using you favourite colour. To be honest my all time favourite colour is aquamarine but since I used aqua mist for last week's challenge I thought I'd use another colour combo I love - deep red and cream, a variation on my favourite red and white mix.

I've used some papers and other bits and bobs from a dreamkits scrapping kit. I love that shimmery star and had fun layering it with a poinsietta, thread, a brad and some fake greenery. The letters are grungeboard coloured with Copics, and I used the mega curved rectangle nesties to cut the papers.

Hope everyone has a good week!

Recipe -
Paper/Card - Very Vanilla/Bravo Burgundy(SU)/papers from scrapping kit (Dreamkit)
Other - cream grosgrain ribbon, mega curved nesabilities, cuttlebug, white gel pen (Ranger), chipboard star, embroidery floss (Bazzill), pearl brad (Making Memories), button, grungeboard (Ranger), Copic markers, burgundy organza ribbon, paper poinsietta
