MS Christmas Exchange - Noni to Nia

Merry Christmas everyone!

What lovely cards everyone has done.  My card to Nia arrived in time for Christmas, but unfortunately the postie has been a bit slow coming to Australia from Portugal - even though Nia posted a couple of days before I did!  Never mind I'm sure it will be in the post office this week :o)

So I have seen the photo of the beautiful card that Nia has sent me, but as yet you haven't seen what I sent Nia as she wasn't going to open it until Christmas Day.  Hopefully Nia has opened her envelope as I am now going to do the big reveal!!

I found my design in the "Best of  Margaret Sherry" bookazine and then did a 3D image to complement the stitching.  Actually the truth be known I saw the image first that I wanted to do as a 3D card and then looked in the book for a matching design.  The 3D image came from the Margaret Sherry "Snow much Fun" CD that was a freebie with a craft magazine.  (I only bought the magazine for the CD!!)

Both images were then layered onto a Christmas candy stripe paper and placed onto a gold card which I had already covered with a vintage Christmas paper.  The label also came from the CD collection.  The final step was to add some lovely shiny red rub-ons which I put in the bottom corner.

Christmas 2011 card for Nia
I do hope you like it :o)

Nia, thank you so much for organising the Christmas Exchange.  I hope that we do it again next year!

Thank you everyone for sharing all your beautiful stitching over the year.  I look forward to seeing what everyone stitches from the great Margaret Sherry designs in 2012.

Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year

Pop on over to my blog for further stitching updates!

Til next time, happy stitching
