Nadolig Llawen – Happy Christmas

The time has once again arrived for me to wish all visitors to my blog, my Facebook Friends, and all the lovely people on Craftforums, a Very Happy Christmas.  I’m so pleased that you find the time to pop over for a look at my blog every now and then, and delighted that some of you find the time to write a comment after looking at the various posts I’ve made over the last year.

I hope you like this card I’ve designed for all of you.  I thought I’d go for something a bit different for me and design a card with black and white backgrounds and an assortment of poinsettias as embellishments.

Details of what I used to make the card are as follows:

Black and White Background Papers CU4CU by Marie Wolman, Red Poinsettias by Karen Wyeth, holly and poinsettia layered with greetings png format by Sally McIntyre,  and Seasons Greetings Bonza Set by Karen Wyeth.  This card was designed by taking three of the backgrounds from the background papers kit into one of my graphics packages.  These were cropped and re-sized to give the card base I wanted before I added a an element each from the other listed sets.  I then added the greetings “Nadolig Llawen” in Welsh and “Happy Christmas” in English.  This made a square card front that I popped onto the front of a card of the same size once I’d printed it onto glossy photo paper.
