Last-Minute Christmas Card

A quick and easy Christmas card that has been totally inspired by the wonderful cards Emma has made, if you have a minute go take a look. This one uses those leftover scraps of your BasicGrey Wassail papers with the smallest bit of distressing and a little bit of fun flock, but you could use your snow writers or glitter or even a bit of fibres or ribbons.

Wish me luck, I’m off to Ikea. I have searched high and low through the streets of London for some basic kitchen equipment and utensils and could I find any? It seems the simple basics have disappeared from the high streets of London and all you can get is your £30 for a single teaspoon, high-end stuff, probably made by the lesser-spotted, highly trained kitchen elf who only makes one teaspoon a year then takes a year off. OK, perhaps I exaggerate. Slightly 🙂


Just to add: The stockings were hand-cut using a sketched template.

Materials:
Papers – BasicGrey Wassail
Stamp – Papermania
Ink – Ranger’s Distress inks; VersaFine Onyx Black
Usual Suspects – Paper Trimmer; Scissors; Silicone glue; Glue dots
Other – Fun flock
