Card No. 093 – Santa & Puppy
Hi there peeps
Hope you’re enjoying the weekend.
I’ve had to spend a fair bit of time in bed this week, but over a couple of afternoons, finally managed to complete this card. Once again, I’ve used mirri card, which is such a pig to photograph, so I hope you’ll ignore that aspect – the card actually looks much better in the flesh, so to speak.
Anyway, the image is by Giordano and is called ‘Our Family’. I actually found it really difficult to find papers that went with Santa’s vivid red suit, so in the end resorted to using plain card in red and white. I gave the white card some texture by running it through the Bigshot with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The snowflakes are cut with Nesties dies, and the small MS snowflake punch, which I then topped with the red ribbon. A very simple card, but it took me ages!!!
Hope you like it, and thanks for visiting, your support really is appreciated, and when I’m lying in bed feeling fed up, your comments really give me a boost.
