I promised to share my three special family cards with you, and here I am with the last in the trilogy….
This card is for my husband; we’ve been together since our late teens and celebrated our 12th anniversary earlier this year! I chose “Christmas Together” by Sami Stamps as it reminded me of that moment, before we tiptoe up to bed on Christmas Eve, when we just take a look around and count our blessings…
I kept the style of the card very simple, as that is the card style that he prefers – the bright reds and greens bring the tree to life, while the doodle frames it all off nicely. I paper pieced the jumpers from the Harper Finch Sweater Weather paper collection and coloured the rest of the card in with Pro-Markers, not a spot of glitter in sight on this card!
Anyway, I’ve got brownie mince pies in the oven, so I’d best hustle on… Best wishes to you all for Christmas and the New Year!
I’d like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Tuesday Throwdown – What Christmas Means To Me
