Merry Christmas

       The Challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is to use metallic papers


This card is a bit different from those I usually make it is C&S which I like but in a different way. The first thing I did was to use a Die-namics die to cut the metallic paper background,then the rest fell into place.

Christmas Landscape

The theme at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week is a Christmas Landscape. I love this digi from Just Inklined and thought it suited the challenge. It was really difficult to get a good photograph taken as I kept getting light reflecting off the acetate.

It's a horrible wet windy day here in the north-east I have no intention of going out so have plenty of time to craft.

A Million Hugs and Kisses

Paper and matching vellum from stash if you look closely you can see a border of paper under the vellum

Probably not a traditional or very romantic Valentine card but it's for a young man so I thought not too slushy.
