Being Frugal 2.

I'm on the Frugal Christmas card trail again. Nessa has thrown open a competition to see if we can make a Christmas card from our ordinary craft items not normally associated with Christmas. You can use a sentiment that is Christmas related.
I had another rootle around in my stash and these are the items I pulled out to use.
A shaped card blank, Promarker pen, versaMarker pen
red pearls/black pearls, white embossing powder
leaf die, white circle discarded from yesterdays card
Greeting sentiment discarded from a previous card which I had re done  in red on white.
Image created was mounted on cardboard and then attached with 3D foam pads.
 
Iv'e made my Christmas Pudding , have you!!

  1. IN the past I have made pudding cards but never made a proper Christmas Pud, don't like them, or Christmas Cake or mince pies.
    Love this card though, very clever.
