Christmas Greetings

Hi Everyone!  It's Danie here again today and I have another Christmas Card to share with you all as I am still trying very hard to make a dint in my Christmas Card List.  I have found yet another wonderful Christmas Collage Sheet to play with.  This one is called Mid Century Christmas Retro (AP-2061) and it really has a great mix of images suitable for both Cards and Tags. My Christmas Greetings Sentiment is from the Even More Christmas Images Collage Sheet (AP1027) which I have used previously along with papers from the Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium 8 x 8 Paper Pad.  All of these wonderful products you will find at Altered Pages.

For further interest I have used some items from my stash also.  I tied some Gold Satin Ribbon around my Card and then used a Sunny Yellow Pearl Pen to create some wonderful texture.

I was inspired to use the Sunny Yellow on my card today as it sums up the weather here today as the temperature soared to a very hot and very unpleasant 40 degrees Celcius, plus it matched the small random dots of the background paper.  To define the corners of the card I smeared some of my pearls together with the end of my pen.

To finish I have cut some leaves from Green Embossed Cardstock and die cut some flowers which I have then embellished with Dew Drops and layered down one side of my main image.

That's it for me today so until next time Happy Crafting!

Danie xx

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
