Chalkboard Christmas

I've been away for a few days, visiting my Mum to spend her 90th birthday with her. She was feeling well enough to go out a bit, so we managed to take her to Southport and to Pennington Flash, two of her favourite places, and she had a lovely birthday weekend.

But now I have lots of crafting to catch up on! First up is a Christmas card using a stamp and paper from the Papermania Folk Christmas collection.

To give a chalkboard effect, I stamped the sentiment onto a black die cut, using Brilliance "wild orchid" and heat embossing with a very old "Pink Pearls" powder sent to me by an American friend. I used a white gel pen to colour in the snowman.

I am sharing this with:

  1. Great use of a non traditional colour on this Christmas card. Lovely. You've been up in my neck of the woods then. I get to go to Southport on Friday for training, nowhere near the prom though. Cara x

  2. Super cute!Thanks for sharing at Christmas Card Challenges.

  3. Thanks for entering your lovely crafting for CHNC challenge 281 – you could also enter this into my CHNC challenge extra for May - I'd love to see it there too x
