So, to today's card - and there's been a major breakthrough in the Kim World of Cardmaking! I've actually managed to make a Christmas card that isn't red and green! Woo hoo! The kick in the right direction I needed came from the Lilis Little Fairies challenge this week which is 'Black Magic' - to use some black on your card. And as I wanted to use one of my new Christmas stamps from LOTV, decided that a touch of black would look so much better with silvers, whites and blues!
This gorgeous little stamp is called 'Christmas Star' and she is just so cute! I've coloured her with promarkers and pencils - and added plenty of stickles and glitter of course!
I've used black card and silver mirri card and the snowflake paper is from GCD Studios 'SnowDay'. It has a really lovely sheen to it, which because of my distinctly dodgy camera work doesn't really show!
I've added some stitching, some white ribbon from stash and a lovely little tree charm from Cart-Us and some white lace from stash. The sentiment stamp is from the great LOTV Grungy Messages (with more added stickles lol!)
The lovely little poinsettias were made with a Marianne die (and yet more stickles....), with a Marianne die swirl in black.
I'm so pleased I managed to produce a non-red/green Christmas Card!
Hope you like it too!
I'll be back soon, Kim x
