Woodgrain, Kraft and White

I made this card for the current Merry Monday challenge which is 'Woodgrain, Kraft and White'.  I'm also entering the Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge where 'Anything Goes as long as it's Christmas'.


Card blank: 5" x 5" kraft
Image: Kanban 'Cosy Christmas'
Card: Brown matt and white silk
Other: Diamond Stickles, Papermania Shimmering Dots, Wink of Stella

I trimmed the woodgrain image, layered it onto brown and white card before attaching it to the card front.  I highlighted 'Christmas' with Diamond Stickles, which has made the letters a lovely coppery colour which matches the kraft card.  I then highlighted 'Merry', the reindeers and snowflake with a Wink of Stella, finally adding small Shimmering Dots to the image.
