Today I’m sharing one more Christmas card – this time a special one I made for my lovely mum and dad.  I managed to find amongst my Clearly Besotted stamp sets the phrases “For My Wonderful” and “at Christmas” so that I could make the sentiment panel.  I die cut the letters using Avery Alpha’s dies from Avery Elle from some red glitter paper I have had for about 2 years!  It’s actually a sheet of wrapping paper I found at a department store and it’s SO red and SO glittery – I LOVE it!  I cut a small section from the large sheet and stuck it onto some double sided adhesive sheets before running it through my Big Shot.  Not surprisingly I am still in love with anything gold this Christmas so I stamped the greetings in Versamark and heat embossed with Ranger Gold EP.  I tied it together with the big ampersand cut from gold Bazzill cs using the die from Clearly Besotted’s Monogrammed die set.  The gorgeous teeny heart was cut using Simon Says Stamp’s Mini Hearts dies (never realised how useful these would be until I bought them!!).
