Plain Kraft Card for Xmas - F

We all like to make our own Christmas cards but we don't want to spend ages getting them done when there are so many needing to be put together.  I am spending as little time as possible but not throwing them together if you know what I mean.

For this one I used an Indigoblu stamp of hanging baubles and the sentiment came from another set of Indigoblu stamps (I think!)  I used sepia ink pad, pencils to colour the little bits that were showing ie the berries and some leaves/scrolls.  I finished it off with gold glamour dust on the baubles and snowflakes.

See how easy it sounds - took me ages to get the stamping just right lol.




Nice of you to visit and hope you come again
