Getting Krafty @ LCI


This fortnights LCI challenge has been set by the rather fun and fabulous Sally (have you checked out her blog??? No, what are you waiting for??? Her cards are gorgeous!!!), who has asked us to

Get Krafty

Don't mind if I do!!!  Lol :-D

I do love a bit of Kraft CS, it really sets an image off - sometimes I use a colour or white, but Kraft is my go-to for a base card, and often for an accent too :-D

Sorry, there's me chatting, not showing piccies, again....

There's all sorts of stuff going on with this card, just love this LCI image - Tom and Snowman - I'm not too sure what the reindeer thinks about being used as a stepladder, but needs must ;-).  I took the colour cues from the lovely papers I got from Live and Love Crafts, and then just went nuts with Lace, Jute, Pins and a fabby brass mittens embellishment also from Live and Love Crafts, some flowers, button, ribbon and velvet ric-rac from my stash, and there are dew drop gems, embossing, glitter, and die cuts too.  The banner sentiment is from Stampin' Up, and although quite a few friends seem to have started selling their lovely products, I got these from Caroline a few weeks ago.  Naughty me, I didn't buy the die (is there a die for this one????) I just used my scissors... even if I had the die (if it exists!) I reckon when you are only cutting 3 out, scissors are far easier :-D  I've also gone a-la DT buddy and friend Julie and played loop-da-loop with the bakers twine.  I know it's a bit busy, but it's a Christmas card, and we are all busy at Christmas, so it kinda fits... LOL!!

Here's a close up of this cutie of an image :-D, and a different shot

Hope you like this one as much as I do
