Happy Christmas

Whilst sorting out my craft papers I found some sheets with large images and this one is perfect for the current Merry Monday 'Cards for Kids' challenge.  I'm also entering Christmas Card Challenges 'Anything Goes', Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.


Card blank: 7" x 7" white silk
Stamp: Paper Smooches 'Joyful Greeting'
Ink: Versafine Olympia Green
Card: Dark green Moondust
Paper: Making Cards 'Traditional Christmas'

I trimmed the paper into a square, leaving the Father Christmas image in the lower corner, before stamping the sentiment in the top corner. This was layered onto dark green card before being attached to the card front. Simple!

Love to see how these special designed papers can work well on a card, as I buy them, then don't really know how to use them to best effect. This one is beautiful with the fab Santa laughing down in the corner of this pretty card. Well done! TFS
