A Country Craft Christmas

Good evening to you all. We had our first snowfall today, it didn't amount to much but I was not happy to see it. Who wants to go outside in the cold? Not me. Lucky thing that there is a great sketch over on the Whiff of Joy challenge. It was the perfect reason to stay warm and create another Christmas card.


I have decided that this card will be for my neighbours. It has that country craft feeling that I know she likes. I have once again used Henry and Friend on Candy Cane and colored these cuties with my Copics. I knew that I wanted to use Kraft paper but it was looking a little flat so I have stamped the Hero Arts starry sky background with versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. All the edges have been inked with Vintage photo distress ink. The patterned papers are from 7 Gypsies and K and Company. The large red flower has been handmade and there is even some cross stitch to add to the country charm.

This card will also be entered into the following challenges:
