Traditional Christmas

It's great to experiment with different types of crafting but now its getting a little closer to the Christmas, 'quick' seems to be the order of the day.

I opted to do a little bit of hybrid crafting for this fortnight's challenge over at Polkadoodles. I used Picknix 3 Nordic Winter and worked out what I needed within my graphics programme.

That way I only printed off what I needed. All I added then was stuff from my crafty stash, in this instance, Gold mirri, gemstones & glue. 

To add a little texture & dimension I used an embossing folder on the large green card & blinged it up with my gold, pan pastels, Foam bads to raise it up a little and job done! One traditional Christmas card!

Thanks for taking a peek! I'd love 
it if you'd leave me a comment too x
