I made a start on tidying away my seasonal bits and pieces but as usual got sidetracked into making 'just one more' - at least I already have a few cards in hand for next Christmas now which can't be bad.  I started by stamping a group of snowy trees onto some white card using green ink before placing the die onto a suitable part of the design to cut the top layer of the tree.  I then cut the bottom layer using card in the same colour as the ink used for stamping.  Some glue was applied to the snowy parts of the image and covered with Glamour Dust but this doesn't show up well here.  I then found some background card, baker's twine and a scrap of plaid paper to finish off the card. Some tiny foam pads were placed behind the 'lift up' parts of the top tree and a silver star placed on the top.

It is a thoroughly miserable and very wet day here today so spending time in the craft room seemed the way to go.  Now it is back to the tidying and trying not to become sidetracked yet again - no promises though.

Background - wood effect card/paper from The Works, tartan from my scraps box
Oval - Tonic die
Tree - Stampin' Up die
Sentiment - from Woodware stamp set
Star - SU punch


  1. Another lovely card Val,well done.

  2. A beautiful card Val, good on you for making a start on next years cards. It was all I could do to get this years completed and sent out.

    Happy Christmas
