Christmas Carols

Time for the girls in the Christmas card club to show our next makes.
Rita  chose the theme this time which was Christmas Carol.
Looking through my used Christmas card stash I came across this pretty wreath which had sheet music in the background. Can't see what the song is though!

Iv'e made another acetate fronted card. 
I do like making these and they look classy.
I have used copper pearlesent card stock to create 
the base card and gold stickers on the spine and acetate.


My second card to use my stash of stamps,digis, embossing folders, stencils does cheat a little
bit this time as I have used a christmas card front on it as well but it was required for the stamp
image that I have used namely my Penny Black 'Caroling Duck'!

I've used Acetate for the front of the card
and adhered the 3 kings onto the base card.

Now everyone sing along with  Mr Duck
We three kings of Orient Are.............
Hope you approve Rita of my tongue in cheek card.

  2. I especially love the first one with the acetate front Valery and a floral wreath always appeals.

    It was bad new about our rehab as I too am having a relapse and there are more on their way, not sure if there is a way up from here.

  11. Definitely your acetate card covers are classy & also unique! Very pretty, and love that you're whittling down the old Christmas card stash so well. Got a big chuckle out of that duck with the 3 Kings. Now that is just clever use of your caroling stamp and old cards. This duck always makes me smile! WTGo. Good luck with the internet woes. TFS & Hugs

  21. These are so lovely. The caroling duck made me smile! Perfect for the Christmas Card brief. I have a similar PB stamp and I never thought to use that...what a brilliant idea!

    That collage card is so lovely. I like the musical score paper tucked in and the pretty holly accents. Perfect with this wreath image.
    Thanks for taking part in the May Rudolph Days Challenge.

  28. This isn't particularily the song I wanted in my head for Memorial Day but it is a wonderful carol! You have inspired me to use acetate on the front of a card. These are both beautiful and I love how you decorated the acetate. Adding the Caroling Duck with the sentiment is so fun for this card.

  41. Well Mrs A had to do check through to find it, but do love your card which arrived downunder today.

    Thanks so much for thinking of me, sorry I didn't send one your way, very slack of me...

    I must say I love the way you've used the acetate and overlaid the Penny Black image of the singing duck to tie in with the Carol.
    Well done and thanks so much again.
    Thanks for sharing,
