Cute Card Thursday Challenge 30

Well, I thought I was going to miss making a card with my Penny Blacks yesterday but when I saw the theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'Christmas Animals' ....out came all the PB stamps again. I apologise for using this stamp twice in one week, but I really love it.

My card has been made for a friend who doesn't like 'too much fuss on my cards' (in her words) so I've had to pull myself back from over-embellishing it.

I think this will please her and it does please me because I did a tiny bit of 3D decoupage (only 2 layers above the base image). I can hardly call it decoupage really, to me true decoupage is 4 or more layers so this is just a bit of cutting out.

Items used:
  • Gold C6 Card stock

  • Anita's Christmas paper and Anita's vellum

  • Gold and red mirri card for matting

  • Peel off sentiment from the Docrafts Goody Bag

  • Penny Black 'Night Before Xmas' stamp - water coloured and glamour dust added to the hat fur

  • confetti stars threaded onto gold and red sewing thread

Thanks for looking,

Sorry about the Basic Grey idea - but I was there first (LOL) - for a change I might add - I'm usually on the last gasp.
