Christmas story

   Here is my next Christmas card which I made in order to use up some bits and pieces. The starry backing paper, which I printed a few years ago, was matted and layered onto red mirri card and white card, having first wrapped three rows of thin ribbon round the bottom. I bought a box of this ribbon in various colours several years ago but don't use it that often because I think it is too narrow. The mirri card stars attached across it are waste from die cuts.
   The stamped image is from Crafter's Companion Bebunni Christmas collection and I coloured it using Promarkers, gel pens and distress inks. I cut it out using a Spellbinders labels eight die and matted it onto red mirri card. The sentiment is from the same set of stamps and is again matted onto red mirri card.
