Scrappers Delights - Anything goes with a twist of Christmas traditional colours.

This week at Scrappers Delights we are getting ready for Christmas!  Yes you heard it right...Christmas!  But then for a crafter we tend to either start early or prepare for it all year round.

Scrappers Delights

I used Snow day Honey and i loved colouring her...especially the snow!  Someone recommended Glamour dust so i managed to get some locally and enjoyed the effects when playing with it.  I kept my card fairly straight forward with one main background colour, the striped background.  Christmas to me always reminds me of candy canes and red, green and white so that is where the idea of the stripy paper came from.  Because that is quite a busy paper i kept it fairly simple after that by colouring the digi in R 33, 35, 37 for the lovely red Christmas attire and then matted it onto gold Mirri card.

I added a corrugated card band through the middle with some green and silver sentiments and some lovely button snow flakes that i had in my stash.  I just snipped the shank of the back! So that they would sit flush.

Hey presto done and dusted!  So decidedly straight forward.  Mind you my cards of late have been decidedly straight forward and not too complicated as i have expended a lot of my energy of late looking after a hospitalized friends mentally challenged grown up children.  and then introducing my 8 yearl old to a new speech and language school... dare i say it that i may have time for more complex makes? soon?

Here is a close up of all those glittery bits that i used my tub of glitter on...lovely!
