Mod Tree for World Cardmaking Day :-)

Hi all :-) I hope you’re all having a fab weekend and managing to find some crafty time ,, after all it is ‘our’ weekend to celebrate cardmaking !! :-)

There is a special celebration over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog  and there are some fabulous Holiday 2012 Card Kits on offer !! :-) all you have to do is make a card, leave a link to your post and leave a comment ,,,, the more entries there are the more kits will be given away !! 

Yesterday the postie arrived with a  HUGE parcel filled with my latest crafty spend !! I had ordered quite a few of the new stamps and dies from the Simon Says Stamp Exclusives and I have to say  I LOVE em all ,,, still have a few more to get ,,,,  :)

Mandi and Chrissie over on the Less is More Challenge are asking for silver so I thought I would add to my Christmas box and made this ,,,,, did you know there are only 78 more days to go ,,,,,Christmas will be here before we know it  :-)



I used the new Mod Tree die and cut it out of Silver Stardream card and cut some small stars using the  Holiday Shapes die, the larger star is from a Stacking Stars die. I added a few snowflakes from an EK Success Snowflake border punch and used a new Folded Banner Die for the sentiment.  I created a little ‘snow drift’ by tearing some card and embossing with a Sizzix dots folder.

To be honest I think I should have left the sentiment off , looking at it again it seems too big ... what do you think ??  :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one Smile
