Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. My dear and wonderful husband Tony passed away in March 2019 We had been married for 36 years. I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

I am at the moment very busy making tissue boxes to sell at the Macmillan coffee morning on Friday, and the rest of the week I will be baking for it as well.

A couple of weeks ago Mrs Duck launched her new website where you can buy some crafty stash at reasonable prices if anyone is interested there is a Link on my side bar that will take you there.
Of course as Ang is a good blog friend I had to purchase didn't I. 
I bought the John Next Door Rustic Frame embossing folder, and this is what I created with it.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I started by painting some white card with Starlight Paint Topaz to get my lovely bronze gold card.
Then I embossed it with John's embossing folder, and as it's a Nbus item I will be joining Darnell's Nbus Challenge.
Just matt and layered the different colour card.
Die cut my TL Poinsettia, leaves, and fir branches with the painted card.
The Christmas calendar is from the Pink Gem website.
Finished it off with a bow and some snowflakes cut from the painted card.
I am really pleased with how this turned out.

Hi Jenny. Sounds like you are being a very busy girl!! I love this luxurious Christmas card, so expensive looking xx

BożenA said...

Oh, wooow !! This is such a beautiful card !! I love the deep golden color of your card's panel. The combination of black, gold and ecrie is simply dazzling. The gold plated panel made it look like it was made of a golden sheet instead of paper. Excellent idea and amazing card.
Hugs from Poland,
