It's Chriiissstmassss!!!…...

…and it's not just creeping nearer - it's less than a month now and guess who hasn't made nearly enough cards!!!?
I have been determined that most of my cards will fit into an envelope to go through the post without extra cost.
This time I've used a stamp by Inkylicious that I bought at a show.
I stamped it three times and then coloured in the leaves, birds, flowers and buds using Sakura gel and sparkle pens plus a gold Pentel.
Lacy grass at the bottom and a hand cut stamped Woodware sentiment.

I must say I'm quite pleased with this as it's not my favourite way to make cards!

I would like to enter in -
Stamping Sensations Challenge -  "Simply Christmas"
and Try It on Tuesday - "Christmas is Coming"

Thanks for looking, Chris

It may not be your favorite way to create cards, but I love it. This is the type of card I would far rather see, than the ones where they stick on everything but the kitchen sink. And sometimes, I think they add the sink, too. This is a truly beautiful card that I suspect ANYONE would be proud to receive. It would be a number 1 on my list!

This is a terrific way to make cards if they ate as beautiful as this one.

Thank you for sharing it with us at Try it on Tuesday

Love Chrissie x

I've been trying not to create too many layers. or cards that are too big this year too, Chris. I love this design! Those little birds are really gorgeous! I love how delicate it is. xxx

Oh, I love your sparkly little birds perched on the elegant twigs - such a fabulous stamp, and you've created an amazing card with it. I've yet to get round to fitting homemade cards into my world, and I can see the challenge for us multi-layering crafters of trying to simplify to get them in the post... and I think you've completely and utterly nailed it here!!
