Christmas Card Club

Stampin' Up! sale-a-bration sneak peek 2014

Aarrrgh!!!!! I hate it that when I do my best to master technology it lets me down either with slow broadband living in the sticks or HTML codes gone wrong or ........   or maybe (don't tell my husband!!!) it's just me not giving enough patience to deal with the changes, but I've tried for three days on two different pieces of technological equipment to load a picture of this Christmas pudding card!!! I was so thrilled that for once I was going to be on time for the fortnightly Christmas Card Club Challenge set this time by Lizzie with the title of 'Cooking up a storm', meaning anything to do with seasonal food.  Well it's cooked a storm here I can tell you with my frustrations at actually getting a picture onto a computer that will allow blogger to work for me to post.

Enough whining here's my Pud!  I used the circles collection framelits to make my base card ensuring that i left the fold of my card slightly beyond the outside edge of the framelit so that it didn't leave me with 2 circles instead of a card. I also trimmed a little off the bottom once it was cut to make it stand upright.  Using a sneak peek of one of the fabulous free Saleabration free gifts ie the decorative dots embossing folder I added texture to my pud. To highlight some I've used some metallic rub-ons (from deep within my craftroom!), with cotton bud picking out odd embossed dots and also some of the soon to arrive gold sequin trim with the smallest of pearls.  The icing has been embossed with clear powder to give a glazed look, a bit like mine at the moment and the topping of holly and bell is a card topper I bought in the Marks and Spencer sale.  Christmas messages from Stampin' Up! winter catalogue gives a warm sentiment while it pops out of my pudding on a cocktail stick and again adorned with sequins and pearls. 

Please do visit the other lovely ladies in our club who will inspire you with their beautiful and varying offerings of Christmas grub!

Take care til next time.
