Back from Hols & Giordano Christmas

Hi folks! Can you believe that I was a poorly Poppet towards the end of my holiday and really quite ill when I came home :o( I thought holidays were supposed to be good for you! I'm on the mend (Yay) and catching up everything... so I'm chasing my tail as usual. I hope you were able to catch Joanna Sheen's latest live show on Create and Craft. She launched the most adorable Christmas Stamps from the Giordano studios. I made this card using Teddy Christmas stamp set.
I cut the card shape myself. I hope you can see how I did it from the photo above. I stamped and watercoloured the image. Die cut it out using my Nestabilities, Square dies. I cut the gold scalloped layer with my Scalloped Square Nesties. I adhered the main image to the back of the card.

I stamped, coloured, cut out, shaped and adhered some extra Christmas stocking images to the front of the card. The message is also stamped from the set. I curved the card before attaching to the front of the card with a decorative snowflake brad on top of some thin red ribbon. which I had curled to the top of the card.
Hope that's ok.... my brain is still a bit foggy.
Ciao for now!
