With Love at Christmas

Day 13 at Beccy's Place month long holiday challenge the prompt letter is K.

Beccy gives some example words and when I saw kraft I thought to myself that I have never used kraft card to make a Christmas card so thought I would have a go.

I used a sentiment Margie's Christmas Freebie from Beccy's Place and printed it quite large as I wanted it to be the centrepiece of the card. I have coloured the holly with Promarkers and added some Stickles glitter glue to embellish. This was matted onto kraft card.

The kraft base of the card has a panel of paper from K & Co and to finish off the holly theme I have added some die cuts and gems.

I am really enjoying taking part in Beccy's challenges and what a great excuse to make Christmas cards too 😀

Beccy generously has a great selection of freebie's available to suit all occasions. I have also been very lucky to have won some store credit to purchase from the store.

Card Details :-

Size - A5
Paper - Holly Vine from K & Co
Tools - Promarkers, gold gel pen
Embellishments - large red gems, Stickles glitter glue, holly leaf die cuts
