My First Card For Christmas 2013 ….. Noel

This card measures 5ins x 5ins and used a hand cut blank made from Kraft card, mat and layered on dark blue.

Woo hoo hoo, my first card for Christmas 2013, done way back in April!
It’s very plain in a typical FiddleFart less is more sort of way! The letters used came from a game bought at the village Easter Fair for just 50p, I just cannot resist the opportunity to buy a set of cheap letters to put away until the right project comes along.Once I had got the letters centred and balanced, all that was needed was to add a few punched snowflakes with pale blue flat backed gems and a layer of Ranger Glossy Accents to lift the letters and add dimension and texture to the overall effect.

Looking at it now, although I was aiming for a “shabby chic” effect, I wonder if it’s just a little too austere?
