Christmas Wishes


FESTIVE FRIDAY Challenge time!! And this week it's all about Candy Canes!



I had a lot of fun making this card. It's the 1st one I've made in three weeks. I started by Ink Distressing the background with Broken China. The house is kraft paper stamped with PTI "Gingerbread Lane" in snow pigment ink. I added glitter to the front. I hand cut the snow in the background and ran the paper thru my Zyron and sprinkled coarse glitter over it. The tree branch in  the corner is a die from Impression Obsession Die that I distressed with Tim Holtz "Mowed lawn"



I'm really enjoying making these cards thru out the year. Less work come December when were all so busy!! If you want to join the fun go Here !!
Hugs, Char
