Whiff of Joy challenge - Christmas card

Morning! Wednesday already and that means its time for another challenge at Whiff of Joy challenge! This week we would like you to make a Christmas card....there are so many gorgeous new Christmas stamps that Katharina has released so I can't wait to see all your entries! There is a 20% sale on Whiff of Joy christmas stamps at the moment too - had to get myself some of those cute gnomes - can't resist a sale LOL!

My card is quite a simple one for me, the image is fairly large and it didn't seem to need much else when I made it although looking at it again now I think maybe I should have added some more embellishments but it is done now although it does looks much more sparkly and Christmassy in real life! All the papers are K&Co and have been edged with brushed cordoruy distress ink and stickles.

I have used the cute Santa baking and coloured him with copics. He is such a wonderful Santa don't you think!? I stamped some swirls from the Whiff of Joy spring swirls set around the edge with brushed cordoruy distress ink and also a sentiment from the Whiff of Joy winter kit. The edges have been distressed with brushed cord distress ink also. I have added ivory flowersoft to Santa's hat.
The ribbon started out plain and I have stamped "joy", "peace" and the small snowflake, all from the Whiff of Joy winter kit along the length of the ribbon using fired brick distress ink. Instead of a bow I have twisted the ribbon together and secured with a gem brad. I also stamped the three snowflakes from the winter kit with white Q chalk on the red BP.

Thanks for looking! Do pop over to the challenge blog and see the rest of the DT's cards, you won't be disappointed! Hope you can join us this week! x
