Jodie with Baubles

The countdown to Christmas has begun with only 78 crafting days to go.  The shops have started to stock their shelves and I even saw Santa and a snowman walking through the city centre the other lunch time "ho, ho, ho'ing".  I think it's bit early for that don't you, they'll lose their voices by the time the big day gets here!

Anyway back to my card and I've decided to go for an aperture card as I haven't done one of these for ages and I found a stack of Christmas vellums that I wanted to use too.  It was simple to make and I think it sets off this gorgeous image from Pink Gem Designs beautifully.  Why not pop over and have a look at all of their designs?  Just think of all those special Christmas cards you've got to make!

You may have noticed that there isn't a sentiment on my card but I will be adding a personalised one before sending it, maybe by just adding a tag to the present.

Materials used:
Coloured with promarkers
Accented with glossy accents
Nestability - scallop oval small
Printed vellum
Krylon gold leaf pen
Card candi - Carnaby Street
