Christmas Card Swap

Over at the Kit & Clowder Facebook page there is a lovely christmas card swap going on.

We were given a random member to create and send a card to and now my card has been received I can share.

I cut  the layers on my Cameo, I wanted to create a little forest scene background and decided to add a lampost as a reference to the Narnia books, which were a childhood favourite.

The snowflakes are a die I borrowed from my Sister and the Ivy is a tattered lace die.

The little skater is from The Paper Shelter and she has been coloured with Copics.

I used a clear wink of stella pen on the white parts of her outfit, but it does not show so clearly in the photos, it just added a nice shimmer.  I also added some fine glitter to the little wooden reindeer.

This is the little message I had from the recipient, so glad she liked it.

Hi i have been away for a few weeks as my grandchildren were ill and i came home to happy mail !! yay. I received the most beautiful card and generous gifts i cannot thank Julie Reed enough.
