Happy Thursday and it is officially nearly another week gone by, gosh the one thing about the job I do is that you are always so so so busy that the time flies by so quickly in the day. The NHS is always busy no matter what area you work in I am sure, but of course our elderly care system leaves a lot to be desired in my eyes and Continuing heath care is no exception but I guess that's another type of blog post.
So getting back to why you are all here I have used the new John Lockwood 12 days of Christmas pad and Phil martin's Holy themed stamps to create today's post, again a Christmas themed item but I hope you like it in its traditional colours too.
Without further a do here is today's card.
Here's a few pictures along the way ...
These are the stamps from Phil's line I used to create the background.
I used this mdf shape and Jon Lockwood's paper pad to cover it,i used the pear tree paper and placed the branches where they would be on a real tree.. lol clever hey...
It looks nice like this but i added some stickles and also some diamond sparkles in the end as you do
Here's the background coming together.
Here's the added sparkle etc on the tree and placed on the edge slightly. I had a tshirt once that said , If your not living on the edge your taking up to much space lol (random yes but it made me think of it )
Here is a close up so you can see.
After this I used another paper from the pad and 12 days of Christmas from Jon and a black mat on the backing and also a few little pearls here and there and on top of the tree.
I did then decide lastly it needed a little red so I made a little bow from seam binding top left with a pearl centre and then on the right I cut a strip of the same backing paper and alternately between red and green seam binding added a little strip and twisted it in the centre and attached on the back, i did that all the way to the top and then backed it in black and added it to the right on the card. a little different , and gave a Candy cane impression maybe, what do you think?
Here is the finished image again.
Anyway all done....
Hope you like it and I will see you all very soon.
