Christmas Love

Happy Sunday Everyone!

Christmas Day is fast approaching, I finally made a card for my dear husband.
He loves LOTV images. I have this sweet stamp in my stash for a 
long time and decided to color it up and made a tag card with it.

The image is called "On The Way", it has been retired.
The sketch is from SEME Challenge #58; I have rotated it 90 degrees.

I watercolored the image with Distress Ink pads, and embossed 
some Shabby White Frantage around the image.
I also added some glitter fluff on the fir trims.

Designer paper ~ Maja Design A Gift For You Collection
Dies used ~ Marianne Design, Magnolia, La La Land, Spellbinders

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
32mm Wedding Bell white cluny lace, 30mm cream zig zag cotton lace,
cream seam binding ribbon, ivory button twine, 3mm sticky tape,
WOC lily flower med/large cream, K&G ruby red rolled rose,
5mm rred flatback s/a crystals.

I have photographed the card in a make-shift light tent ~ a 16"x16"
clear plastic container. My camera was set to Indoor setting without flash.
I am pleased the picture came out pretty good, although I need to
play with my "light tent" more to get the better pics out of it.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a lovely week!


I wish to enter this card in the following challenges:

I'm glad to hear you are (pretty) happy with your light tent. I still need to re-make mine. Maybe I'll have some play with it over the holidays when I have some free time.
