Christmas Candle (posted by Claire)

Hello, today's card is a very traditional Christmas card using one of the beautiful new stamps from 'The Gift of Christmas'


The backing paper is from Seasons Greetings CD and the image is stamped on kraft cardstock and coloured with Derwent Coloursoft pencils. I've added some glossy accents to the baubles and tiny dots with a pearl ben for the mistletoe berries. You can see the image a bit more clearly in this pic


To finish the card off I've added some ribbon and a couple of die cut pine cones
Thanks for popping by, have a great weekend

  2. The use of kraft with that backing paper is delightful & I love your colouring with the Coloursoft pencils - the white candle is a beauty with your highlights on the baubles.
