For this challenge I chose Fluff from Barbara Jensen Designs. Although it isn’t a Chrismas image I thought if I used traditional colours it would work and that’s my Cristmas card for my hubby done early too J

I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers keeping to just red and green colours. The image was cut out using a Nestabilities die and I used a small inkpad to distress the edges of the shape.

I had some Hobbycraft vouchers for my birthday and bought the current copy f Creative Cardmaking magazine which had some smashing papers and card by Kanban with it. I used the traditional green holly to cover the base of my card and the gold and red card has had some Stickles glitter glue added as ‘berries’. The swirly die cuts are a new acquisition from Sizzlits. There are 2 swirl dies and shadows and stamps to go with it. The poinsettia flowers are flocked velvet and add some gorgeous texture to it.

The stripy sentiment panel is by Craftwork Cards which I layered onto a scrap of white card. The sentiment was ‘Made By Mandy’, cut using a Nestabilities die and I added a couple of green gems to finish off.

I had added the sentiments below, in both JPG & PNG format. You are more than welcome to download them. Please do not add them to you blog or claim them as you own and if you do use them I would love to see your projects J
