Carol Singers

I was thrilled to be asked to be Guest Designer at Country View Crafts after my October Halloween project here was chosen in the top 3............. even when I learnt my project was going live on the blog on Friday 13th............ yikes!! Me superstitious.............never.......... :-(

The current challenge is Bah Humbug.  The Film "A Christmas Carol" and my Tim Holtz stash heavily inspired this card which I hope you like.


A piece of Kraft resist Christmas Memories  was inked within an inch of its life with barn door until a dark shade had been achieved which really bought out the resist areas.  Frame is a spellbinders and I cut this out of metallic paper I found in my craft room, sanded it lightly. A layer of designer paper Holidays past and a salvage sticker were stuck behind the frame.  This was layered onto kraft red and black card before adding to a white card blank.  Tattered Garland die and Festive Greenery were used to cut flower greenery from various papers including co-ordinations which I sanded and inked the edges with black soot.  Message is a TH stamp a favourite of mine stamped in black archival ink onto kraft card and cut out free hand.
I couldn't resist glitter so I added some to the carol singers who are singing away on a very cold and snowy Christmas Eve!!

Thanks for looking
'til next time


Items used
Tim Holts Stamps, Alterations dies and paper stash, distress inks, card and paper from my stash

  2. Huge congrats on your GD spot at CVC - and what a wonderful card you've offered up. The carollers look so great against the frame, and the whole thing has such depth and dimension - brilliant!
