The colours are a little bit different for a Christmas card:
- 5" white square card stock
- chocolate brown backing card (this needs to be quite thin as the PATP snowflake set is quite intricate and doesn't cut thicker card as neatly) - punched with the PATP set
- paper from the MME freebie set, with corners rounded off
- topper from the MME freebie set, backed with a round scallop also cut from the chocolate brown backing card
- sentiment also from the freebie MME set
- a few aurora borealis (two big words today!) gems, some on the tree topper and one in each corner snowflake as, to my eye anyhow, the centres in the corner punch are a bit big compared to the delicacy of the rest of the snowflakes
All done, and another one on the Christmas pile. My 'in-house critic' says this reminds him of chocolate peppermint creams :)) Today is his birthday so maybe the Birthday Fairy will have to see if she can find some real peppermint creams!
Have a great weekend, whatever you have planned!
I really like this card Di, and that snowflake edge so pretty. I agree with you that the gems do the trick on the corners. Lovely! Kate xReplyDelete
Di, this is really lovely i love the pretty punch around the rim of the card and your colours are gorgeous, the background is stunning as is your image you have a lovely card here and a great challenge good luck, many thanks for your lovely comments too have a lovely weekend:) Sandra HReplyDelete
Lovely card, Di - I like that the colours are a bit different from the usual Christmas fare. The punched edge is gorgeous ... it's now on my 'most wanted' list. Love trees with gems on them - I think the must be 'on trend' because I've seen quite a few in blogland and on galleries recently. Hope your weekend is going well. Elizabeth xReplyDelete
I hope all is good with you.
Loving your Christmas card. How fab that MS punch looks and your freebie papers.
I hope your "in house critic" has a lovely birthday (and that you manage to find him some peppermint creams).
I hope we get a peep at the wedding stationery samples!!
Love Jules xx
I've had Amy here this morning with her three little darlings and she opened up her card from you while she was here.....all we can say is wow wow wow. Thank you soooo much for a really stunning card [I don't have a pic of it to blog it for you sorry].ReplyDelete
