Merry Christmas to You & Yours

The current challenge at Winter Wonderland is 'Add a Sentiment' and I've used one of my favourite stamps to make this card using the colours for the current Less is More challenge which is 'Green and Gold'.   The card and paper are from my snippets drawer, so I'm also popping across to the playground to see Sarn in the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 6" x 6" pearl 
Stamp: Inkadinkado ' Merry Christmas to You & Yours'
Die: Spellbinders  Nestabilities 'Wonky Rectangles'
Embossing: Clear embossing powder, Kars tan embossing mat
Ink: Versafine Olympia Green
Colouring: Gold gel pen
Snippets: Gold mirri and white pearl card, green/gold star paper

I layered a strip of paper onto gold mirri card and before attaching it to the card blank I scored down the edge to make a flat spine, which is a great idea I saw on Jane's blog.  I then attached the strip to the card front.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed onto white card.  This was die-cut and embossed before being layered onto a larger wonky rectangle and attached to the card front.   To finish I used a gold gel pen to colour the stars.

That's a wonderful snippets Christmas card Kath. This flat spine is the latest trend in the Snippets Playground!
