Another Christmas Card

Hello Everyone - I hope everyone in the UK is managing to keep warm and safe, and not struggling with the snow too much! We have snow here in mid Wales but not as much as in some other areas. I had a meeting planned for work this evening but thankfully we were able to cancel it yesterday - I was dreading having to drive 30 miles each way in the snow and ice in the dark!

Enough waffle! I have managed to make another teacher Christmas card - this one is for my son's teacher. I have used the off-cuts of the papers I used on the first teacher card I made - I think I have enough left to make another card with them too! As the one paper has Christmas trees on it, I can enter this card in the Stamping Vacation Lots of Paper Challenge.

(Sorry about the quality of the photo but the light was not good - if I can get a better photo I'll update it)

The image is Little Christmas Angel digi from Whimsy Stamps and I have coloured her with Promarkers and added Diamond Stickles to her wings. The die used for the image and the sentiment is Nestabilities Labels 10. The sentiment is from Crafters Companion - it's not stuck down in any way, is just hanging from the bow by a jump ring. The gems are Papermania shimmer dots.

I didn't have any pink card to match the backing papers, so I coloured some cream card with a Promarker to match.

I really wasn't sure whether to add any flowers or snowflakes onto the card, but decided to leave it clean and simple - I'm still not convinced though!

I'm also entering this in the following challenges:

Create4Fun - the sketch I used
Charisma Cardz - one for the girls
Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club - use a die cut
Top Tip Tuesday - anything goes

I hope you like my card, and I hope to be back soon. Surely will be, as Eleri has been invited to a double birthday party at the weekend - better get cracking on making the cards - I thought I was going to be able to concentrate on Christmas cards and Christmas presents this week (oh well, hey ho!!).

Love, Andrea xx

Hi Andrea, just dropped by to thank you for your comment and for your support. Love your colouring, the hair look particularly good! Also like your label die and the way you have attached the tag - good thinking! If you add anything, I'd go with snowflakes.
Enjoyed having a nosey round your blog - your cards are lovely.
