Anything but a Card

That's this week's challenge over on the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - take a look

Here is my Christmas Banner

Want to know how to make it - take a look

Cut large triangles of decorative Christmas paper.
 Cut more triangles this time smaller and using coloured card stock.
 Mount the smaller triangles on to the larger ones.
 Prepare a Christmas greeting.
 Add the greeting to the triangles.
Make two small paper rosettes - concertina long srtips of paper and join together.
Flatten and secure with card stock circles and strong glue.

 Make two small 3D ornament embellishments.
Attach to rosettes and triangles. String the triangles together and further embellish with Christmassy flowers and gems.

Thanks for looking today, please don't forget to check out the Dt work over on the blog - it is rather stunning this week.
See you soon - Jacqueline xx
