Welcome 2015

Happy Belated New Year! I'm hoping 2015 is a wonderfully happy and healthy year for all of us. I personally am pleased to see the back of 2014.

I was going to show you the Card-io Christmas cards I made but I was running out of time to post them so off they went. I then realised I'd forgotten to photograph them! So here's the Christmas card I made for my in-laws.
and a close up of the embossed wreath.


Card Ingredients

Card stock- Centura Pearl white with a hint of gold and jade pearl card from stash.
Die cuts- Spellbinders Grand Decorative Circles, Cheery Lynn Happy Birthday and Joy Crafts card stand two.
Stamps- Stamps by Chloe Starry Trails and Starry Wreath.
Ink pad- Versamark
Embossing powder- Stamps by Chloe Silver Bells Wow embossing powder.
Glitter- Stamps by Chloe Blue Lagoon ( possibly. There's no label on the jar and I didn't write the names down when I bought the glitter set from Create and Craft, doh!)
Other stuff- white organza ribbon from stash for bow, small gems and petal shaped diamante on bow from MeiFlower.
The Starry Trails was stamped around the big circle embossing it with the Silver Bells after each time I stamped it so I could see where I'd stamped. The jade circle was going to be another Decorative Circle die cut which it was in a way. I forgot to use some wax paper with it and it ripped on removal from the die so I cut the decorative edge off leaving the plain circle.
A big thank you goes out to my lovely blog friends who have been checking on me, your messages have meant a lot. Thanks Marianne for showing me that I'd posted this halfway through writing it (I was trying to write it on my phone on a bumpy journey and pressed publish instead of save!) I will get back into commenting on your blogs.
 Big hugs coming your way,
