Christmas for the boys

Afternoon all. I'm still without my own laptop but am sort of OK with the loan of husband's backup one. I'm still working on his card but I have another week to get it sorted. In the meantime here is one card I made for Christmas.


I made it using George from last Christmas's Molly Bloom set. The star I cut freehand from a piece of embossed white card then edged in Tim Holtz 'Broken China' distressed ink. The ribbon is a Docrafts design from years ago and the snowflakes are punched from silver and white card with a Woodware green punch. The white ones I inked with Copics. The sentiment stamp is from LOTV and I personalized the middle with a name and mounted it on a spellbinder inverted scallop circle in silver. I coloured George using Copics.

Wellies:-C1,2,5,7
Snowflakes, Scarf n mittens:- BG000,01,05
Face:- E000,00,11 R11
Trousers and jacket:- B93,95,97,99

The whole lot was mounted on textured blue paper from the stash and double mounted onto silver.

I am going to enter it in the following challenges:-

  2. Love the big embossed star and the pretty snowflakes using cute little George. I have those LOTV sentiment stamps and I've never thought of customising them with a recipient's name. It's a fabulous idea and this card is perfect for a guy Thank you for participating in or Christmas at Sweet Stampin' challenge this month. Hugs, Lesley
