No prizes for guessing what type of card I have to show you today... yes it's christmas. Next week is December so I guess it's time to officially start to panic and 4 weeks today I'll be telling myself that I need to be more organised in future!
When starting this card I really didn't have any design plan in my head due to Mojo still hiding away somewhere (probably off in search of christmas pressies) so it was just a case of trying different things until I came up with the finished card.
I used a new stamp I got from Penny Black called 'little elf kit' which I coloured with Promarkers and added Stickles on the 'fur' parts of the elf's outfit and paper pieced the star with glitter paper. The red spotty paper is a leftover bit from my oddments box so no idea where from but guessing it may have been a magazine freebie ages ago. I used twine to tie some little sleigh bells before adding some stars die-cut from snippets and the sentiment is a Clearly Besotted stamp.
