First Christmas Card for 2017


We just had a very wet weekend with just a bit of snow thrown in now and again...thank goodness it was rain and not snow. However those east and north of us got blasted with a snow storm and the Atlantic coast really got hit hard.  I got hit hard with the brain disorders so I didn’t go out at all. I did manage to make a few cards though. One of the dies my friend lent me was a Christmas die and here’s the card I made with it.




It meets the requirements for this challenge.

I wasn’t sure how this die even worked so I just cut it with a piece of white cardstock and found out the petals all cut out separately. So, I then die cut and embossed the petals only; twice. in red cardstock. Of course I had to have something behind the die so I opted for this Christmas paper from a 6” paper pack I picked up at the dollar store last year. The background paper covering the card base is from the same pack. But when I laid the red designer paper on the other paper it didn’t pop so I mounted it on white cardstock and then I liked it. The poinsettias leaves were glued down and then I added some small hole-less micro beads in the centre. I think it turned out okay.



Comments are always welcome. Let me know if you like my cards or offer some suggestions for future cards.



That’s all for a cold and windy Monday, February 13, 2017
