Working on my Christmas cards!

The nice thing about being off work and not being able to do a whole lot of the boring mundane stuff like HW is that I have had time to go through some of my older stash in my craft room and the digi stamps on my pc!  As a result I have put this Christmas card together using lots of old stash!  The image is 'Maurice Christmas Socks' from Pollycraft Designs, coloured him with spectrums and added stardust pen to the white stripes on his jumper, white flower soft to his hat and diamond glaze to his glasses.  I came across an old freebie cd too (dated 2012) and when I saw the Scandinavian Christmas papers I knew I wanted to use them and that's where I got my colour palette from.  I used a wavy blade in my rotary trimmer (don't get them out often enough either!lol) then added ribbon, bow, gems, die cut star, little wooden button, bakers twine and little wooden sentiment tag that has also been treated with diamond glaze.  I think the newest part of my card is actually the Kraft cs and I've had that for a few months too!  Enjoyed making this and adding all the different elements, hope you like it too.
