Christmas Card Club - Tidings and Trimmings

handmade christmas card using stampin up tidings and trimmings

Today is a poignant share for Christmas Card Club, we are remembering our lovely club member Shaz who sadly passed away earlier in the year. She had chosen our theme today of Decorations, baubles etc and so I have gone with a special star. 

christmas card with tidings and trimmings

I've created a background using the Festive Foliage background stamp which I stamped in Evening Evergreen ink. I've then used stampin write markers to with other shades of green to colour just some of the design leaves and berries.  

I've added a gold embossed stamped star from Tidings & Trimmings and die cut it with one of the Stitched Stars  and used the same stamp to add some pattern to the scalloped trim.  I've also covered the stamped star area with Wink of Stella for some subtle sparkle. 

A little ribbon which if I'm honest hides a finger smudge, but coordinates well lol! 

Have you exciting plans today?  We are starting celebrations for Olivia as it is her birthday this week and we are seeing my parents which always seems so special now following the past 18 months.  We are hoping it stays dry and warm so that we can enjoy the garden and watch our mad dogs excavate the lawn for us.  

Keep safe all and keep stamping.

Hugs Zoe x
