Christmas Countdown! 4 day's to go...

Hi folks. First off,
Just to let you all know, the new Do Crafts January 2013 Promotion has now arrived at Pinnacles! It's all checked off, Priced up and is now gracing our shelves.. So if you are looking for something new to do over the holiday's then this is a great place to start! The new Creativity Magazine is also in stock, so if you're not crafting and just fancy a good inspirational read then come and get your copy! As an added Bonus to all of our Pinnacle Crafts Club Members there is DOUBLE DISCOUNT off the entire promotion (excluding the Magazine) on Saturday 22nd, that's a 20% saving folks to Club Members only! ................................... So, here we are on the 21/12/12 and the world hasn't ended, YET! I think this will be my last project of 2012 to share with you. A friend of mine is having her son Christened between Christmas and New Year
and this is the card I have made for her/him.. It's made a great change for me from churning out Christmas cards over the last few weeks! I pretty much knew straight away when I saw one of our new Kaiser Craft stamps what I was going to do with it! This Bird Bath/Fountain stamp looks like it's got quite a few uses, even as quite an elaborate Christening font!
After stamping it out a few times
I cut the images out
and Decoupaged them together to build up the layers,
before adding it to my base card which I had prepared using the Grand Embossing Folder, Dainty Dots (EG002) and the Tonic Studio's Die, Trellis Wall (239e).
You know I'm a fan of dimension and this project has heaps of it!
To add the element of water, I added some Glossy Accents to the rim of each layer and a few water droplets
before finishing off with a Ribbon and a few embellishments!
The only drawback being I've used soooo much Mirror card, AGAIN! that I can't get a decent picture without reflection, so here it is flat to give you a better indication of how it looks!
All in all, pretty happy with it though! Don't forget, Saturday is our last trading day before Christmas and we close at 4pm..
Our MEGA CLEARANCE SALE starts on Saturday 29th December @ 9am in the Education Room here at Barleylands.. There’s ganna be shed load of bargains for everyone!
So, all that remains is to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas and thank you for following along with us this year. I look forward to sharing more inspiration with you in 2013. Have a great time folks. Thanks for checking us out. Andy..
