an old favourite...

I cannot bear to part with all my retired Stampin' Up! sets and this is one of them... I love this set and this will be one of the sets that I use for my personal Christmas cards this year. I have made this card as a thank you for one of my customers and I did not make it a Christams theme I used my ink pad lids and an aqua painter to add the colour to the image and before adding each layer I waited for the image to dry...
Once I had finished the painting image I inked the edges in black and mounted it on craft and mellow moss and then I mounted this to the card blank which was soft suede. I added the image at an angle and have also inked the edges of the card. I have added a thanks so much sentiment to the bottom right of the card.
A very simple card to make but very effective proving that not all Christmas sets have to be used just for that purpose.
I hope you like the card and thanks for looking x x x
