Christmas Cheer

Hi there and thank-you for visiting.

When I'm making Christmas cards, I usually make a couple of the same design as a production line approach is fastest. You might have seen my 'Snow Bird' card recently. This is its 'twin', with alternative paper pattern.


Papers: Maya Design 'I wish'.

Dies: 'Meadow Bird, 'Holly Leaf Trio', 'Stitched Circles' and 'Woodland Branch' - all by Memory Box.

Stencil: Snip Art 'Magic Lights'.

Media: Stampendous Frantage 'Aged Ivory' embossing powder, Dreamweaver texture paste, Viva Decor pearl pen 'Ice White', Snow-Tex, Paperartsy 'Snowflake' paint, Ranger 'Clear Rock Candy' glass glitter.

Embellishments: Berries, sisal and wooden branch from stash.

Very many thanks for taking the time, especially now when most are very busy.
