Christmas Bird

I have made this card to add to my Christmas cards for neighbours, I really do need to get on and do some serious Christmas card making - I'm all behind as usual!


I have used the other image from the set that I used for my card posted on Thursday, I cut it out with a Spellbinders circle die and mounted it on a scalloped circle.  This time I used papers from The Echo Park 'tis the Season collection along with another Pink Petticoat sentiment.


I think I might change the Sue Wilson poinsettia for a slightly smaller one, it overwhelms the image a little doesn't it.

Merry and Bright

This is my second card for this weeks Less is More Challenge, the theme is MORE THAN ONE TREE.


This card was so difficult to photograph because of all the sparkle and shine.

I used my Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil and some Pearlescent Embossing Paste to create the background and my Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside border dies for the snow covered hills.

The trees are from the Lawn Fawn Critters in the Forest collection and the sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn Snow Day collection, both have been embossed the Platinum Sparkle embossing powder.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Less is More Week 198 - More than one Tree
ABC Christmas Challenge - W for All White
Through The Craft Room Door Challenge - Anything Goes

Christmas Forest

It's theme week at Less is More and the theme is MORE THAN ONE TREE, this gave me the perfect opportunity to use my Lawn Fawn Forest Border die.


I cut the Forest Border in some DCWV silver glitter card and also in white card stock and pieced them together to make my tree background.  I then used my Simon Says Stamp Holiday Frame die to cut the Merry Christmas frame.  They have both been layered onto some more silver glitter card and I added a simple silver twine bow.
