Keep Calm and Count Down To Christmas


Good morning everyone, I missed the last two special offer from Papermilldirect so hope you all got your newsletters with the offers, if you are not signed up for the newsletter you can find the sign up here.  This week's special offer is a gorgeous A4 shiny blue 270gsm card, the pearlised paper and the A4 white 250gsm smooth card from the last two offers is still available too .

I used this week's shiny blue card and a selection of Papermilldirect coloured cards to make these framed Christmas gifts for family and friends.



  
Here is a Christmas card using a red, teal and orange colour theme, again using Papermilldirect coloured card.


A square of smooth white card was coloured using distress inks and a Memory Box stencil, when dry the greeting was stamped onto the card and a ribbon tied round it.  The white card was layered onto teal and red card and added to a white card blank.  The tree (Indigo Blu freebie) was stamped, coloured slightly with teal ink and dotted with glitter, this was then added to the card with sticky fixers.



Pearlised paper was used to create the beard and white trimmings on this jolly Santa count down to Christmas calendar which I made for my granddaughter.

I definitely need to Keep calm! this whole Christmas thing is getting me stressed and I don't do well with stress! Your card is gorgeous, lovely stamp too, and I love your countdown stand, takes less space than an advent calendar! I bet your granddaughter will love it!
