Christmas...

As there seem to be a few Christmas cards appearing on various blogs that I follow,
I thought I'd make my second one of the year, as it is now July and I plan every
year to make an early start!


I cut the reindeer and trees die, three times and glued them together to give a bit of depth.
I also only glue the lower half to the base card, to leave the trees free.
I added Glimmer Dust to the sky, which you can't see very well from the photos.

The products I have used are:-
Reindeer and trees - Unbranded die from eBay
Memory Box - Stitched Borders
Crafts-Too Embossing Folder - Snowdrops
Scor-Buddy

  5. Gotta learn about this Glimmer Dust. Is it the same as Perfect Pearl? Yes, I agree. It is always a challenge to capture shimmer in photo. Love the dimension! Thanks for sharing your creation with us @ Incy Wincy Designs Sparkle or Shine Challenge. Good luck!-Maria Giselle B.

  10. I love the layering it gives it so much, I bet there is perfect shimmer in the sky, great winter scene. I don't have any Christmas cards made yet, I seem to always do that at the last minute but it sure would be less stressful to have them done sooner :)
