Christmas Card Design 2011

This is my main Christmas card design for this year for my friends and family. They are just a little under 4" square. The bauble from the SU! Delightful Decorations set has been stamped with either Memento Lady Bug or Grape Jelly ink and then punched out with the co-ordinating SU! Ornament punch. The card base has been stamped with the hanging thread stamp from the MFT Die-Namics Christmas Ornaments stamp set and then the greeting from the PTI Signature Chrsitmas set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The bauble has been adhered to the card with 3D foam and then an SU! Rhinestone added to the centre. CAS cards but I like them! I need to say a big thank you to Stephanie for the inspiration for these cards, I love her style.

STAMPS: Stampin' Up!, Papertrey Ink, My Favourite Things. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black, Lady Bug & Grape Jelly. CS: Craftwork Cards. TOOLS: Stampin' Up! Punch. EMBELLISHMENTS: Strampin' Up! Rhinestones.

Thanks for visiting me today, I have been able to sit up long enough to write this post then I think I am going to have to lay down again for a while. The procedure went ok, quite a few attempts to get at my spinal fluid so have a bruised back but not too bad. A pain free Christmas looks promising :0)
