PRIZE $12 Voucher


For my project today I have made a little Letter to Santa card. The image was a lovely one give to us by A Day for Daisies and I thought it would be perfect, she is posting her letter to Santa!
for the background I used the gorgeous postage stamp ribbon from  CRAFTY RIBBONS which you can get HERE.
I cut the stamps out then machine stitched them like a patchwork quilt to a piece of red card. I love the effect. The image is coloured with promarkers, distress ink for the clouds.
I made a letter inside for a child to write on. The frame is from my DoCrafts Enchanted Fairy cd.
