Another Christmas Card. Seeing that Christmas is sneaking up on us all and also the terrible state of the mail system for international mail now - it is time to concentrate on getting the cards under way. Some of the international mail from here is taking months to be delivered overseas. Hopefully by posting them earlier this year some of the recipients will receive them before Christmas.
For this card I used a set of free stamps from Pink Fresh - included in one of the English Crafting magazines. I must admit I based my card on one of the examples in the magazine because I loved the simple and not too fussy design.
Using one of the floral stamps from the set I stamped the image on cream card - rotated the stamp and stamped it in the other corner using Archival Sepia Ink and Misti. I then used watercolour pencils to colour the image in and highlighted the centre of the flowers and berries with a gold gel glitter pen.
Hope you enjoy.

That is beautiful! I love the image, and how you've made it sparkle even though there's only the gold gel pen. I have been so inspired by what you do with the glitter gel pens on other cards that I bought a small pack recently.
