Jingle Bells with Father Christmas

     This is going to be a short post because it's really late, I'm still awake, but about to fall asleep.  I told you that I had worked on Christmas cards all last weekend and here's one of them with a delightful vintage flair.


     This is the best of recycling and upcycling at the same time.  The image started out a plain black and white image on a boxed Christmas card which I cut out by hand.  I colored with both ProMarkers and chalks, then I cut frames for it in green, red, and brown using rectangle dies from QuicKutz.  It's mounted using pop dots to raise it from the background.

     The background paper is wrapping paper which I cut and added to the card front, then wrapped it with sheer, beige ribbon.  I tied a triple loop bow and added it to the front.  Then I designed a wreath and candle made from gemstones and added it below the bow. There's lots of dimension and texture on the card.

     Challenges:

     That's all for now.  I'll see you all again after I've had some sleep.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
