Merry Christmas

Mornin' chums!
 
It's a wet, windy, dark and nasty day here in Norfolk. Not good. Then again it's the type of weather you want to cosy up on the sofa with a hot cocoa and an old Christmas movie, such as Holiday Inn or White Christmas. 
 
On the other hand National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and Blackadder's Christmas Carol are good for a giggle. I watched Blackadder's Christmas Carol last night on the laptop whilst I was making a couple of cards. I say watched, I know it off by heart so I'm really listening rather than watching.
 
Talking of cards, here's another Christmas one for you.



What you need...
 
Stamps: Christmas Tree Stamp Set - Yellow Owl Workshop; Christmas Sampler - Paper Smooches
Inks: Sea Breeze, Turquoise Gem, Aquatic Splash, Purple Hydrangea, Spring Pansy, Pretty Petunia - VersaMagic
Card stock: white
Gems: clear, assorted sizes
Adhesives
 
How you do it...
 
Stamp the tree with Sea Breeze ink onto the left side of a top fold square blank. Stamp five presents under the tree using the remaining five colours. On a scrap of white card, stamp the sentiment with Purple Hydrangea ink, trim and adhere to the top right corner of the blank. To finish, embellish the tree with a few gems.
 
Another quick and simple card, perfect for last minute makes. I think it would also look good in shades of pink... maybe I'll try that colour later.
 
Right, must get on, lots to do. Thanks for popping in and see you soon. xxx
