1st Christmas Card - Halo Angel

Good afternoon crafty people

Well, I've actually finished my first Christmas Card.  I've seen sooooo many around blogland lately I started feeling all Christmassy, and as the weather had turned wet and cooler, I decided to make a festive card.  I was going to chuck this image in the bin as she was inked up with distress inks yonks ago and I didn't like the colour, but then I found some papers that kinda went with her (and I discovered frantage, hee hee) and then I decided she didn't look that bad - apart from the attempt at dress pleats that is, rofl.

The papers are from Dovecraft, Vintage Christmas I think.  I've recycled some sparkly tulle that I ripped off last years Christmas crackers to make a little bow, and popped a rose on from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The little orange apples (I think they're apples) were a delightful free gift from Live and Love Crafts which arrived with the frantage, cheesecloth and lace which I've also used on this card.  The swirl is a Marianne Design die.

I'm going to enter this card into the current Live and Love Crafts Challenge number 14 Warm or Cool Colours.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.

  2. This is gorgeous. The frantage is just beautiful on this card. I'm smiling as I look at this...that's the month I found frantage, too....neat stuff, but boy...I had it all over the place and had to change my pjs cause I didn't want to sleep with it. hahaha. I love the neutral color of Tilda's dress and the pleats looks very nice, don't be so critical of yourself. Your card is beautiful!! --Gail
