Well, its my first Christmas card of the year.... in June..... I thought I'd make an early start on them this year as I was just so sick of them by the time Christmas came around last year. I'm going to try and do at least one a week from now on!!!
This card is for two challenges; Penny Black are celebrating their first birthday and you have to make a card for a celebration and I have used the fab sketch from Friday Sketchers Challenge 56.
As you can see, I have made a card and matching envelope combo.
The penny black image is coloured with distress inks and I have also distressed the edges of my oval with broken china ink.
The papers are from DCWV and the embossed panel has been done with my snowflake embossing folder. The sentiment is computer generated using the font lucinda handwriting.
I did a bit of recycling with the white twill that goes across the middle of the card. Jeff's parents were recently here and his mum brought over a tea towel that she got for 1p from the recent promotion at M & S, well the tea towel was folded up and this twill was tied around it, just perfect for a card!!!
Finally a picture of the inside.
