Digi Stamps for Joy March 2014 Christmas Card no 3

Hi Guys I'm back again with my Christmas Card using the monthly freebie from Digi Stamps for Joy South Africa

This month we were given a sheet of sentiments to use.  Originally I thought omg what do I do with this as they were pretty tight together so it took me a while to get going!  But I kept thinking about it and ended up with a few ideas.  One was to print it onto coloured paper as a background, then I thought about using my inks to colour it as a background.  But first I cut out some sentiments individually that I liked just to see what I could get cut and what I liked. So as you can see from the photo I cut "I Believe" and "The Magic of Christmas" and used them together. You can't tell from the pic but i've covered them with Crafters Companion spray and sparkle too. I picked a Creata pretty reindeer card as my backing and simply worked from there. I used Creata green Mirror Board as mats for my words and red for my background mat.  I added a Crafters Companion icicle die cut in green onto the bottom of my main words then added some snowflakes in gold and green with red gems in the centre and a red heart to finish.  I'm happy with the finished result so let me know what you think plz.  Till next time from Jacqui xx
