Across the Miles at Christmas


We have a lot of family and friends who live in the USA and various parts of Europe and so the 'Happy Christmas Across the Miles' sentiment from LOTV has proved really useful this year.

I cut out a layer with the largest die in the Eyelet Squares set of nestabilities and stamped the lovely holly stamp from one of my Inkadinkado stamp sets in Pine Distress Ink in the centre.  I coloured the outside edges image layer with Barn Door and Pine DI and added a little Stickles around the edge.

The holly leaves were punched with a Martha Stewart punch and the berries were created using a red Waco Pearlmaker pen.

The base card is red so no background paper was needed.  The minimum layers and light weight of the card makes it quite economical to post.  I hope my rellies like the vintagey distressed look of the card!

That's it from me for today folks, til next time - keep on crafting !

Super duper and it LOOKS dimensional even if it isn't - fab work Wynneth. That Inkadinkado holly image is just perfect for this too.

Stunning card- loving the distressed look and the traditional holly image. You are very clever to think of the postage and design the card with minimal layers specially for that- something I would forget to do. I'm sure your reletives will be thrilled to get the card.
Did you get the card I sent? Not sure with the post at the moment. x
