ABC Christmas Challenge - U is for unused Stash

Hi girls. Nice to have you here on my blog. Hopefully you will find something here that you will find kind on the eye and maybe even some inspiration for your own cardmaking. Is everything going well with you? Are you getting on with the old Christmas cards. I've decided that I had better get on with mine.
I am going to enter this one into the current ABC Christmas Challenge where the theme is "U is for Unused Stash".
I have inked up Magnolia's "Edwin with Santa's List" and coloured it using my Polychromos pencils. The papers are from my unused 12"x12" stack of My Mind's Eye Bountiful "Oh Christmas Tree" and I have used a red pearlised card as a mount.The snowflakes are punched with Martha Stewart and EK Success punches. The border punch is by Martha Stewart. The pearls, glitter and gems are from my stash and the Christmas Tree Charm is an unused stash item. I used Glossy Accents on Edwin's boots.
I hope you like this card and that you might have a minute to leave a comment to tell me what you think of it. I value every comment I get because I value your opinions.
Stay safe and healthy.

  4. Hi Fiona, this is gorgeous. I love the traditional colours. And the white paper in the background makes the reds really stand out. I've not been getting on with my Christmas cards either so I'll have to get a move on.Had a dose of Flu this week since I got my Flu jab(never happened the last time) and I've not really been crafting much.
