1st of December and I'm up to my eyes with Christmas preparations and very exciting samples for the coming year so quick and easy cards are the order of the day and given my usual habit of looking on the quirkier side of life. I decided to go completely left field with this one. Brace yourselves people! I have NOT thought outside the (Christmas) box! I know! Crazy huh!  There are NO sheep hiding behind this beautiful image and not a single monster lurking anywhere. I may have to breathe into a paper bag any minute...

Seriously though, I absolutely love this gorgeous cake stand stamp by Jo Firth Young. It looks fabulous on a really clean and simple background and was actually really easy to fussy cut too.  I've dragged the colour of the baubles down into the dish to help the illusion that it is glass. I think it really looks effective and, once again, it is a very simple thing to do. I left my pencils in their box and stuck with my Copic Markers for this one.

Here's the shape of the card and you can see the background is very clean and simple. You could make it a one layer card but I really like the way the focal image stands away from the background with this style of card.

It will be back to monsters tomorrow... They miss me if I don't play with them regularly...

Thanks for dropping by. If you've got a few more cards still to make, why not give this one a try. It's really quick and easy.

  4. And I love your gorgeous take on the set too, Lauren. Love your colouring too. For some reason your new posts don't appear in my reading list so I'm sorry to be a little late commenting on this post mate.

  5. What a fabulous festive card - love the vivid colours against the stark white, and the great touch of sparkle!
