I have been seeing Christmas cards popping up on other people's blogs for a while now and I thought maybe this year I should make an earlier start than usual so here is my first Christmas card!

It's a very simple design and was inspired by the lovely Marilyn; I adore how she often uses Frantage sprinkled lightly around the images so just had to have a go!

I printed the sentiment onto card and then stamped my very favourite Christmassy James image next to it.
I have just started the clothing class at Kit and Clowder so was keen to see if I could use some of the techniques on the hat and scarf.  I even added some of my own folds on the left of the hat and scarf and am pretty pleased with the result :-)

Card recipe;
Image: James in the snow - LOTV
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat (no longer available)
Frantage: Shabby White from Live and Love Crafts

Copic colours;
Fur: E40/41/42/43

  14. Ahhhh, the switch to a new blog explains why I hadn't seen any of your lovely cards recently! I've been flitting in and out of Blogland whenever the pain lets me (still having wisdom tooth issues, I have an assessment on the first of Sept... I've only been waiting since February!), so I must have missed the announcement. Either way, am following you here now, so hopefully I'll not miss too many more.
    This James card by the way, is utterly gorgeous. Love it! x
