Christmas card for my sweetie :-)

Hi everyone.  I hope you all are enjoying your family time and having a most wonderful Christmas.

Just popping in to share with you the Christmas card I had made for Andy.  On Christmas Eve, yep, I realised I hadn't a card made for him. So after preparing all the veggies for Christmas Day, I went down into my craft room and came up with this.

I had used this little stamp from Crafter's Companion called All Wrapped Up for Christmas.  I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then coloured with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I have to say that in the rush of making the card, I didn't keep a note of the pens used - sorry.  Here is a close up of the image.

My base of my card is Kraft card and then the papers are from an American Crafts 6" by 6" stack called Kringle & Co.

I used a Spellbinders Nestabilities Scalloped Rectangle to cut around the image and also used a Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust pen on the snow flakes and hat.

The sentiments were part of the stamp set.  I really must get round to buying some EZ Foam and sorting out all my stamps - something to do for 2014 :-)

The inside of the card was made up using the same elements as the front.

I then used my WeRMemory Keepers envelope board - I so love this tool and was a great purchase to make and made an envelope for the card using a DCWV 12" by 12" stack called Christmas Made.

Hope your Holiday season is going well.  Andy goes back to Winnipeg today - sniff sniff!!  We have had a fabulous Christmas holiday with him being home.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.
