Acrylic Squishings for Christmas !

Hi, hope everyone had a great weekend.  Unfortunately I have a shocking cold.........so will definitely take all the sympathy you can offer..............lol


Acrylic Squishings is the background for one of my latest Christmas cards and the stamp is by Inkadinkado.  The card is an A4 size sheet of black shiny card folded in half, the squishings are mounted on gold mirror card and added some stickles for a touch of glitter.

Wanted to keep it plain for maximum effect, the greetings are inside - 'Merry Christmas' embossed in white.
Hope you like it.   Will be back again about midweek with another Christmas card.  Thank you for popping in and take care of yourselves, Hugs Annette xx
