Nordic Christmas

Having said I didn't need to make any Christmas cards this year I've just made two using images and papers printed out from Crafters Companion CD which came along with their latest Inspirations magazine.  The two images were printed and then cut out with scissors before popping a background which I thought looked a bit like snow falling in the sky behind the houses .  The Nordic style backing papers were also printed and I simply added a die cut snowflake and a sentiment, keeping the whole thing fairly flat for posting.   I'm not sure which one I prefer so I'm sharing both with you. There are lots of other great ideas which came  with the magazine along with a stamp set and a die which I will be using very soon.

Images and papers - Crafters Companion
Snowflake - X-cut die
Sentiment - from computer on die cut labels (free dies from a while ago)
