Christmas Icons …



Hi everyone, just a quick post tonight as I’m not feeling very well. I’ve got the most horrendous cough and chest infection that has just floored me.

I’ve not moved from the sofa for 3 days which is very unlike me and can just about manage to muster up enough energy to sit at the computer …so you may be getting comments on your blogs in the middle of the night as I’m not sleeping!


This card was on the Ideas to Inspire blog last week and I promised to put the list of supplies on here for those that might be interested





I’ve used the tree and snowflakes from our new Christmas Icons set, stamped them in versamark and then embossed with silver powder


I made the hill from the Frosty Christmas pad  and the sentiment is from Christmas Handwritten Phrases 


I cut out along the bottom of the tree so it overlapped the paper


All the edges are inked with distress inks and the line of gems along the bottom is from Dovecraft


Apologies for the awful picture – white cards are so hard to photograph



Night night x
