I hope you are having a great weekend. Christmas prep is in full swing in our house. I have even started to wrap presents.
Someone at work made me an offer that I couldn't refuse, she offered to make me a Christmas cake if I made a Christmas card for her mum. I was very happy to accept this offer here is what I created for her. She has already made the cake. That was speedy and we both get to do something we enjoy doing.
I cut the while mat for the aperture as wide as would so through my Big Shot. I like the white on black look I achieved this with a die cut in white for the sentiment.
Around the the edge of the black mat I stamped a snowflake with Perfect Medium and alternately heat embossed with white and then with clear embossing powder.
The one stipulation was that the word MUM was on the card, I cut this with my new Tonic alphabet dies - they are good. I cut off the the fancy bits for a cleaner look and so it would fit in the space I had left for it .
For the insert I cut the Mosaic Poinsettia out of Funky Foam and I used it as a stamp.
Finally I used the leftover bits from the alphabet dies to decorate the envelope.
I think I got a fair trade for a cake. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. We are off to Salisbury to collect a rabbit for my daughter.
