Christmas At FSC

FSC has a gorgeous challenge theme this time round which is I’m Dreaming Of A White Christmas. This doesn’t necessarily mean an all white card you can actually make any Christmas card or project you want.

Marina at Cottage Crafts has an adorable stamp up for grabs to the winner of this challenge so hop on over and have a go.

We have a new DT member joining us with this challenge …
she is known to blog land already so why not go have a mooch and leave some love for Paula Ephemera’s Attic.

Made a larger card for the challenge and dusted off the sewing machine which I haven’t used for ages. The photo doesn’t show it off very well at all but the Father Christmas image in the middle was stamped onto plain beige material, padded at the back with wadding, then stitched all around the edges to give a beautiful raised effect. Used the Brilliance tri coloured ink pad called Tiramisu and the Papermania stamp which you can find here. Frayed the edges of the material and laid on a layer of gauze. The rest of the stamped images are from the Winter Post collection from SU, these I stamped onto the paper behind which is from the My Minds Eye Signature Christmas collection.

Found these lovely lace flowers and tiny tartan bows from my stash.
