A Berry Merry Christmas

Good morning my lovelies.

Christmas is fast approaching and I'm getting in the spirit of the season...or rather I'm in panic mode as usual! It sure is true, the older I get and the quicker it seems to come around.
I think I've made 4 Christmas cards so far, I guess I'll be buying most of them again this year.

It's been another dark and wet day here and this was the best photo I could come up with, I just couldn't capture how sparkly it is in real life.


The gorgeous Berry is of course designed by Sylvia Zet and available to buy as a Digi or a Rubber stamp.
As usual she's coloured with DI's, mainly markers.
There's glossy accents on the berries to make them shine, and plenty of glamour dust on her ear muffs and boot tops.
The sentiment is from PTI.
The lush papers are again from Maria, a Christmas gift last year.
The bow is made from 15mm Satin Ribbon with a diamante snowflake in the middle, and there's die cut snowflakes on the edge.

Thanks for looking.
Love 'n' hugs

  1. Morning, just seen this on FB, so I had to pop over and take a closer look. Beautiful colouring and what a perfect match to the paper ( I thought I recognized it; it's from Landstoken's X-mas collection last year). Have a good Sunday! Hugz, Sandy

  13. She looks delightful with the pale greyish blue colouring perfectly complimented by the brighter pale blue & blue-green of the paper. The ribbon with the snowflake is delightful & I love the snowflake trim to your panel with the hint of inked points.

  21. Hi Elaine, my goodness this one is a stunner, it is perfection. Her colouring and sparkles is fantastic and the satin ribbon bow is gorgeous with the snowflake buckle. The expression on the pussy cats face is priceless, how clever the artists are to get all done on such small scale. Not to worry about making cards to give away, I wouldn't part with them if I were you they are far too pretty to risk getting damaged in the post. Pity about your weather, we've had a super week and weekend of sunshine even though it's quite frosty and sharp now. Hope you and the family are all well...Trish

  24. I love the blue color for a non traditional card, it looks very soft and feminine. The bow with the snowflake is also a wonderful touch and I don't think I can make a Christmas card without Glamour Dust, just not possible! And you are so like me, sooo hard to let things hang over the edge!

  31. Wow Elaine, this is such a cute card! I'm in love with it... And your colouring, *sigh* ... Every time you amaze me with your cards. They are so elegant and perfect without to much fuzz and still I could look at it all day!!!
    Don't panic, you still have some time left ;) And the people who get a pre-made card will appreciate the fact you even wrote one.
