Finally....

..... after going around in a grump all day - we had more snow (yuk) and I am soooooooooo fed up with all the hype about the football (I mean really - bothered?) - I finally got around to making a card

I have made this for my Mum and Dad. Mum is seriously hard to please - Christmas cards have to be in traditional green and red - no blue and definitely no black. She doesn't do silver and she hated the ones I made in green and neutrals. This hopefully will tick all her boxes! I used the fir tree from Lovely as a Tree to make a kind of garland and then I embossed with one of the stamps from the Autumn Days set with gold embossing powder. I picked out a few of the round bits with some tiny red stones. I then made some poinsettia flowers with the 5 Petal Punch and the Boho Blossoms Punch - they are held together with gold brads. You can just see some snowflakes in the background, these were embossed with a holographic powder and I edged the card with versamark and sprinkled on some more of the gold embossing powder and heat set it.
OK that's enough from me - going to veg out in front of a log fire now with a hot chocolate! - Bye for now - Jacqueline xx.

  1. I love the way you use Lovely as a Tree and Autumn Days - they are both among my favourite sets too. At least the snow is the perfect excuse for hot chocolate!
