My first Easel card


A really simple card for the Winter Wonderland theme this week of St Nicholas. Ive used this image before as I stamped some at the local shop a month or so back. I think hes a stamps happen stamp. Coloured with promarkers, Polar white flower soft on his hat and Ive just realised I had meant to glitter his beard a bit so I will have to do that when Ive finished. Edges smudged with distress ink then simple matting and layering with green mirri card. The believe stamp is by Stampers anonymous embossed in gold then the brad I think is a papermania one.
I was quite pleased with the result although it is such a simple card.
Hope you are avoiding floods where you are x

  4. Another gorgeous card, Janet. I love the gold wording. We're still dry at the moment, although I saw Skipton on the local news tonight. It looks like you've had plenty of the wet stuff!
