Presents



   For this Christmas card I thought I would go with colours not usually associated with the season.
   I embossed mustard core'dinations cardstock using a folder which came free with a magazine and positioned it four times across the cardstock. I then added glitter to the snowflakes before attaching it to white card.
   As another departure, instead of using my normal Promarkers I coloured this image, from Flower Soft, called 'The Gift', using Spectrum Noir pens. I then lightly dusted the background with distress ink and added glitter to the snow. Finally I added the banner which is from the same stamp set.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:
   Christmas Cards All The Year Round - getting ready for Christmas
   Addicted To Stamps - Christmas is coming
   Winter Wonderland - wrap it up
   Crafting Musketeers - Christmas in October
   Craftyhazelnut's Christmas - make it square
   Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra - anything goes
   Creative Craft2 - anything goes
