Happy Christmas

Here is a project i have made for In2craft DT  to show just one of the new Phil martin collage  stamps.. You will not find better prices than here at the  In2craft  facebook page /shop for all things creative expression and more
You will be amazed. The stamps have been featured on hochanda  a couple of days ago as a one day special.They stamp beautifully too
 I used the stamp to create the background for this card .I stamped it onto ivory card using Red  brilliance ink and my Tim Holtz stamp platform.
The die i have used is Called Eve .l cut from Kraft card.The die is  made by creative expressions and was part of their festive launch . I do think it will be an all year round die as the pattern does not scream Christmas at you so making it very versatile .
The  handmade flower was made using 0.6 foamiran from Crafteezee. 

I also added berries that i bought from the works and  to which i had added some glitter to frost them. The banner was cut using a Stampin up die. It made a nice change to make a Dl card instead of my usual 8x8 cards.
