Deck the halls....

Good Evening All!

Another rather quick post from me. 

This is a card I made for an uncle. Every year the first card through the post is from my uncle Colin so I try to make him something that little bit special if I can.
  Once again apologies for the rubbish piccy. All the photos I took this morning appear to blue tinged for some reason. I tried to reduce the blue on the photo editing thingy but it obviously didn`t work.

I used my Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder for the panel and cut an aperture with a circle nestie.
My stamp is by Elusive Images from the Deck the Halls set and coloured with Promarkers and watercolour pencils.
I think I mentioned last year when I used this stamp that I couldn`t decide what the fruits were so this time I`ve gone with both oranges and rosy apples.
The image is cut with a slightly smaller nestie circle and placed in the aperture.
The sentiment is also from the same set and cut out with a labels 4 die.

So there you have it, quite a CAS card but with a twist.

I went back to work today but fortunately Alan was home to take me and bring me home. Tomorrow he is running his sister and her husband to Manchester airport as they are going to Australia for a month, lucky things, so I have no choice but to walk. Keep your fingers crossed for me lol.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  2. Gorgeous card Lynne, so elegant! Your uncle is going to love it. xx

  3. A very classy card, would never have thought of stamping through the aperture, another idea I will be using if you don't mind. Will be thinking of you walking, keep safe. xxx

  4. I love the way the wreath nests nicely in that aperture. Do take care walking to and from work!


Please leave a comment, it just makes me feel good :)
