A Christmas Tree Message

Today's card is another Christmas one made for my box.
I used traditional colours this time, although the red backing paper doesn't
look so in the photo!
I used the October challenge sketch over at
 Clair and Sharni Get Crafty! Facebook group for the design of my card.
Unfortunately, I embossed the die-cut rectangle using the wrong side of the
embossing folder, so it's the de-bossed side showing, what's known
as a 'happy accident' I think?

The products I have used are:-
Sizzix - Photo Corners #2
Die-Namics - Pierced Rectangles
Crafts Too Embossing Folder - Snowdrops
Christmas Tree and Banner dies purchased from eBay
Home made Card Candi

Challenges I have entered:-
Always Fun Challenges  - Lots of Layers
Christmas Card Challenge - Anything Goes
Jingle Belles - Embossing around the Christmas Tree
Winter Wonderland - Anything Goes

Thanks for visiting.

  13. hehehehe... been there, done that... quite a few times, lol! luckily de-bossed is equally FAB looking and the whole card just sooooo totally pops! so pleased you could join the 'embossible dream" with us at JINGLE BELLES! ♥

  14. This is a lovely die Janice and I really like the colours.

    I'm sorry to be late with my comments. I'm still catching up. I've not be bothered about holidays over recent years but really wanted to go to Tuscany. I nearly walked my legs off but was enchanted by the old cities and breathtaking countryside. As it was one of your favourite destinations I'm sure you have so many happy memories of times there with your dear husband. Barbxx

  16. I agree the debossing does look great with your tree, great design too, I think the paper is perfect with it!

  17. Beautiful Christmas card, Janice. I have this die too, bought at a craft fayre a couple of weeks ago but still in my NBUS pile. You've given me the inspiration to get it out of the packet and actually use it! xx

  18. Simply elegant, thanks for playing along with us at CCC.

  19. Will have to look out for that Christmas tree die!
