Color My Heart Color Dare #416

 Morning all

I’m well and truly in the Christmas spirit! I’m cracking on with Christmas card making and shopping...but I tend to ‘peak’ before the big day and ruin it for myself! 

I also detest writing the cards so I think I’m putting it off by pretending I need to make more!! I’m seriously considering getting a stamp with all our names on and stamping the insides of the cards too.

With me being in such a festive mood, the tic tac toe board for this weeks Color My Heart Color Dare challenge #416 shouted Christmas card at me!

I chose to use the right hand column of Candy Apple, New England Ivy and Gold and kept my card clean and simple (CAS).

I used a lovely stamp set from Clearly Besotted (UK) and heat embossed the wreath and sentiment in gold. I then added some white pearls to some of the wreath circles and coloured the rest in red and green with my Tonic Nuvo alcohol markers. I have cut the stamped card slightly smaller than the card front and adhered it with foam tape to give it some depth. This is an easily repeatable card which is what I like when it comes to Christmas cards!

Hope you liked my design today and will go check out all the other lovely makes by the design team and hopefully we can inspire you to join in!

Thanks for stopping by,
