Sunday evening crafting

We've had a pretty busy weekend so it's quite nice to relax with a bit of crafting!
In October I bought the 12 Days of Christmas embossing folder - and I have just got around to using it on a white card blank.

All I added was 'Merry Christmas' embossed in gold at the side and I highlighted the pears and birds with a gold Promarker.

I have had this sketch in mind for a few days...

This is my take on it...

Initially I matted and layered a darker turquoise cardstock onto a turquoise card blank followed by a piece of white card stock embossed with 'Swiss dots'. I had already added a little piece of twine between the layers. I used some more of the darker turquoise and white to die cut some Sissix 'Mittens'. I glued these in place and added buttons with glue dots. I then added the banner with sparkly letters spelling 'Noel'.

Happy Crafting!
