Mistletoe Doily and a Cabin Visitor

Hello friends

I probably should have shared this card earlier in the week
when the weather was cooler, instead I give you ice cold Christmas
on a blazing hot sunny day! 

This is Mistletoe Doily, one of the new designs by Sharyn Sowell.

I kept the design very clean and simple.


The 'Merry Christmas' is one of the Sentiment Sheets available on the 
website here.  
We've also added Everyday Sentiments for those 'other' occasions,
belated birthdays etc.


I particularly liked creating the outer fluted frame (reminds me of a pastry cutter).
To see how this card came together here's another 'Elliott special' 
aka speedy video! Just click on the image below to take you to Facebook
to view it, the quality is so much better on Instagram
(for some strange complex technical reason I'm sure!)




Items used today with clickable links:

Festive Sentiments
Crafty Foam Tape
3D Foam Squares

Yesterday the crafty cabin had a special visitor,
Paul Antonio.  Paul is an amazingly talented calligrapher
and also a Queen's Scribe!
If you look him up you'll be astounded by what he can do,
to watch him work is mesmerizing.


We have some shows on Hochanda together later this month,
very exciting, more news to follow :) 

Take care friends, please stop by tomorrow for Friday Die Day.
