Christmas is on its way...

On the weekend we made some cards with a great bunch of ladies.
Have you started on your homemade Christmas cards yet?
This first card shows you dont have to use traditional Chrissy colours or christmas papers.
Use what ever you like and how elegant is this one with the Morning Mocha Specialty paper?
 The perfect bow is centre to this card in 1/8 of an inch wide tafetta ribbon.
It wraps around a piece of spotted scallop ribbon border punch !!!
Stampsets used: Welcome Christmas and Teeny Tiny sentiments.
Ink: Basic Black and Real Red.
Cardstock: Very Vanilla and Basic Black.
Specialty Paper: Mocha Morning
Punches: Word Window, 2 1/2" Circle punch.
But its all about the Glass glitter on the tree.
Held on with a few dots of two way glue pen.
This really is a quick and easy card to make and looks like a snow globe dont you think?


  1. Who would have thought to use so much black on a Christmas card but i love it, it works so well. Loving the glitter too. Very stylish.

  2. great christmas card nerida, I was thinking of this color combo myself for my xmas cards this year- but the glass glitter and snow globe effect are really fab x Debi x
