February Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenge

Hi there!

It's already time for February's Waltzingmouse Christmas card challenge, and I cannot believe that I have actually managed to make a card for day 1 of the challenge!

This month it's Lynn's turn to choose the challenge and she has asked us to include a heart somewhere on our card - well that is a challenge made in heaven for me!

I already had this heart stamp on my desk as I have used it for Valentine's cards so it was simple for me to make a card designed around it. I used a sentiment from the same set  - Seasons of Love which I stamped onto an oval die cut and then mounted onto the heart. 

I decided to keep the background white and just add some Pretty Ribbon - this is my new favourite - Wrinkle Edge Sheer - it ties the most beautiful bows and has a luxurious sheen to it so it is perfect for a bit of sparkle for Christmas.  I layered a strip of red satin ribbon on top and then embellished with a strip of 3mm red pearls.

This card was very quick to put together so it is great for duplicating at Christmas. 

Stamps - Waltzingmouse
