Good morning blog friends,
I hope you are all well, thank you for visiting my blog, it really does mean a lot to me to know you have stopped by and I love reading all your comments.
I have been busy in all my spare hours this week, trying to make the last few Christmas cards, whilst also making non-Christmas commissions..goodness there seem to be a lot of people getting married this Christmas!
Today I thought I'd post a bit of humour! This is an unusual card style for me...I love House Mouse, but am not keen on decoupage. However, at Christmas we have to make a lot of cards and much as stamping is my first love, it does take quite a bit of time...plus, we can't get all the HM designs here in the UK, some you would only use once a year anyway; so it made sense to buy the lovely Project books that Joanna Sheen has brought out. I don't need to decoupage the images if I don't want to!
Having said that, this image is from a sheet I had in my stash - I cut out the framed base image and chose just to add one layer on top to give the topper some depth. I matted and layered an A6 blank with green card and then some paper from stash. The image is matted and layered on gold and then green card. I tied the bakers twine around the side of the top layer before mounting and then added a bakers twine bow and a greeting, The greeting is a washable by Clevercut, which I inked with a little Spun Sugar.
For a final touch I added some holly. This card is going to my friend in Italy who also loves the House Mouse images!
