Glenda's Christmas Challenge Part II

Well I was messing about with the Filigree stamps and backing papers today so I thought I'd make another Christmas card for Glenda's Challenge ... Now I am supposed to be sorting the office out but hey I'll do it in a bit !

All items used were from Graphicus seeing as this is Glenda's challenge except my card stock. This is a larger card .... 23½cm long and 15 cm high and made from some scrapbook card stock and based on a monotone card but with a touch of Ice-blue.

The main card was in Black card stock, stamped with the Filigree Stamps down the side in Silver and the edge torn. The right hand side of the card is printed from the Filigree Fusion CD but when the print option comes up you can select to print in just black - TIP ... Adjust the image with the Brightness & Contrast settings to define the pattern more or use a graphics program. There is some fine glittering to the edges of some of the leaves but my camera hasn't picked this up too well.
Remember - Click on the picture to enlarge them.

The Happy Christmas is from the Happy Christmas Greetings Themeplate as this has the matching Filigree background, the greeting was then matted & layered several times. I used watered down Glimmer Mist Patina ( nice ice-blue colour ) as a pale colour wash on some of the leaves.

The tag was matted and layered - edged with the Filigree stamps and the greetings from the Joy Greetings & the Seasons Greetings themeplates. The edges tinted with some black and the watered down Glimmer Mist Patina. Although it doesn't show too clearly the tag has pale ice blue organza ribbons. The flower is layered and comes from the Ruby Tuesday themeplate, some of Glenda's Glitters in Turquoise and Snowflake.

The inside is printed from the Filigree fusion CD.

Right let the office cleaning begin !
