Merry Christmas and Happy World Cardmaking Day !! :-)


I hope all you card makers out there have managed to get some crafty time in today especially as it is OUR DAY :-)

I made 2 cards for the Less Is More White Christmas Challenge using some of the new Simon's Exclusive 2013 Christmas Release :-) 

I used last weeks fab sketch for this 1st one.
I really think that sketch was perfect for an aperture card, which is why I have made 3 so far  :-)

For this one I used a gorgeous Eliza Snowflake die and glittered it up ,,, so pretty

Next up is this one which uses the new Suspension Tree Die ,,,, the tree can spin ! Cool eh ! :-)

I used a new Falling Snow Stencil and scraped over some Embossing Paste to create the snow. Then I let that dry before cutting a hole in the middle. I will link all the products I used at the bottom.

Thanks for looking :-) I hope you are all enjoying a day of cardmaking too !

Click on the photo to see all of the new products :-)

Other Challenges :

Craftitude ,,, AG or things beginning with 'S' ,, Snowflakes 
Keep It Simple ,,, All is White
Try It On Tuesday ,,, Going Dotty
Sparkle n Sprinkle ,, AG with embossing powder, flocking, or glitter

Hope you all have a great week :-)
Happy Crafting
Luv Lols x x x
