I have at last started to get my head around Christmas card making! Thanks to seeing a few mentions of the Funky Junkie 12 tags of Christmas I have decided to give it a go…again! I have tried before but have always attempted tags, this time I am using Linda of The Funky Junkie Boutique's examples as a spring board towards my card making, and I hope that I won't give up this time!
I have seen these tags appearing since September but as we were away then and with making journal pages for AJJ when we came back I am REALLY late!
Tag one was such an inspiration with the woodland and the deer I have just jumped right in and 'FJ12TOC' card number two is already started!
I roughly spread gesso over my kraft card (Oh! I do love Kraft card)Stamped my favourite TH tree twice over then stamped a freebie tree using grey several times over (even built up a larger tree with it)I added the Sizzix deer and stamped a freebie stag and used a black pen to turn him into a silhouette!
I tried several greetings before choosing this freebie stamp which seemed quite appropriate!
I would like to enter at

There will be another post soon with some more cards using yet more freebie stamps!
Thanks for looking, Chris
