This is my offering for Waltzing Mouse Christmas Card Challenge for January 2013. It's based on a sketch by the brilliant Anya Shrier.
Anyone from the U.K. who shops at Marks and Spencers may recognize the "design paper" on the top half of this card. Yes it's wrapping paper. When I was wrapping my Christmas presents last Christmas I fell in love with this paper and in particular with the red/black/white colour combo.
I stamped Cabin Plaid background with black Versafine ink and laid the paper over the top of this. I then stamped and cut a a tag using the WMS Opera Tags and a sentiment using the WMS Ornate Ornaments. The poinsettia is die cut with the mini Poinsettia and Cardinal - a Movers and Shapers Die from Sizzix. The poinsettias stamped on the envelope were from the WMS Bountiful Baskets Additions set.
I have another 5 under construction so "Cheers" to Christmas 2013.
