"Tashtastic" Christmas wishes with Studio 12

A quick Christmas card from me today as had some papers left over from a previous project. I am desperately trying to use up precious paper scraps/bits rather than just store them as I have far too many of these boxes! I am positive that I cannot be the only person who does this ...

I have used the wonderful "I am more Intelligent" stamp set from Studio 12 at Polka Doodles to create my card which is on a simple mat and layer. The papers are from Studio 12, Gingerbread Twist CD.

The sentiment was created in Craft Artist and I have added some misteltoe to the tache for an extra Christmas touch. I created the panel by (roughly) measuring out how and where my words would be placed and then I placed the mistletoe digi image on the panel where I thought it would look the most effective.

I then over stamped the misteltoe image with the tache stamp. On a seperate peice of card, I restamped the tache and cut it out to create a layered look. I also printed out another misteletoe image, cutting this out and finally, added some twine. A quick, (once I had laid out the sentiment topper), card which is a little different to the norm.

It's the start of half term here and I plan to have at least 2 full days of crafting before I have to tackle all the mounting domestic duties which cannot be ignored any longer...sigh.

Have a great weekend everyone,
