Distressed Christmas

It's official! My mojo has decided to go on holidays too! We leave for our overseas trip in 8 days and I've done very little card-making or blogging in the last couple of weeks under my Physio's instructions. Now when I do try to create,  I find myself lacking in motivation! Never mind, I think it's a sign to pack everything away and hopefully the 6 weeks break will see me full of new ideas and my shoulder might even be pain free!

Having said that,  I have a card to share today and if I get my mojo back I may sneak in another one or 2 because I have some brand new christmas stamps that haven't yet been used! I made this card for Virginia's View # 10 All Things distressed with some bits and pieces of unfinished stuff.

I stamped the image from Kaisercraft Basecoat Christmas on the co-ordinating paper and white embossed,  fussy cut the pine cones and layered it with more DP from Kaisercraft. I distressed the edges of the first panel, and machine stitched a border. I've used distress stain on the edges of the paper.I'm also entering the Simon Wednesday challenge - Holiday theme and the Fusion Card Challenge (thanks Lyndal!).
