Clean and Simple card

This past Wednesday night we had a tram meeting in Christchurch. This time we didn't do the usual swaps , but just bought along any samples we had made from the latest Holiday catalogue.
But we  did have time to do a Make n Take. This is the card that Sharyn had put together for us to make. Clean and simple. The dsp speaks for itself.Thanks Sharyn.

NZ Christmas card

Another festive fireplace stamped card. This card I painted the background using Mint Macaroon and aqua painters.
I didn't include the flame with the wood as we don't normally have fires going at Christmas time here in New Zealand. And because our cat is ginger I coloured the cat in Tangelo twist.

Winter Wonderland dsp

Winter Wonderland Specialty dsp was used in this card. I have teamed it up with an ornament cut from the Delicate Ornament Thinlit. I used gold foil paper to cut out the ornament which actually recessed in on the card. That is the dsp has been mounted with dimensionals. The shape of the ornament was cut out of the dsp first.
The sentiment I confess is from Peelcraft.

Ladies in the class commented that we don't have fires at Christmas so they didn't put the flames on their logs. I have made a couple of more cards using  this stamp set and have not put the flames in, Makes it more like a kiwi Christmas.
