Christmas card with Attitude

Hi everyone...Robin here with a Christmas card for you.  My card features two Altered Pages Colorful Christmas collage images which were printed on Craft Attitude and then adhered to cardstock.  I printed on the Craft Attitude film instead of directly on the paper because it gives the card a silky finish. 

The background of the card is made with a piece of plastic film in the rattlesnake pattern.  There is a piece of red Punchinella on top.  The Punchinella came in one of the Mailbox Muse kits.  They are always filled with artsy treasures!  I took a glue stick and daubed here and there all over the back of the Punchinella ribbon to hold in place.

Once the plastic background panel was attached, I glued on two paper borders which help hold the Punchinella firmly in place.  Then the main image was attached with a strong double-sided tape

I searched my stash of embellishments and came up with two unorthodox baubles for Christmas.  I chose a red and white dotted gemstone from a package of Valentine Glitz, a red strip with circles and a red feather from one of the Altered Pages color kits.  A second Santa image was glued on top of the feather.


It's an unconventional Christmas card, for sure.  I hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have been checking out the other projects this month.  Remember to leave a comment to be entered into a weekly drawing for a great artsy prize!
