This Week's Christmas Card

I am on track with the Christmas card making.  Here is the card I've made for a dear friend this week:

Unllike yesterday's card, this one took hours to make.  I am having real problems getting stamps to stick on my acrylic block lately.  This one kept falling off before I could print it, then, despite my best efforts, part of the image was missing.  Grrr!  There's nothing so frustrating, is there?  Especially as I was using my beautiful smooth card to stamp onto.  I ended up wasting nearly a whole sheet.  
I think you'll agree, it is a cute image though.  I first saw this last Christmas and really wanted it, but have actually only ordered it a couple of weeks ago.


I tried to follow a sketch here, but it's not similar enough, so I'll have to pass on that one for this week.  I meant to put snow round the bottom, but forgot all about it!  It's sealed in the envelope now, so it's too late.

Recipe:
Cardbase: white card stock 6x6
DSP: Forever Christmas Cards (HOTP) free with magazine.
Stamp: Lili of the Valley, 'Carol Singing'
Colouring: various Promarkers.
Sentiment: computer generated

Thanks for dropping by.  Have a great weekend.

  3. Lovely card. LOTV are amazing images to work with. I use Pritt stick on the back of my stamps

    Thanks for the comments that you've left on my blog. I did cut the pyramage by hand using big scissors so that I wasn't chopping into the image. Just turn the image into the blades rather than moving the scissors
