Christmas....

Trying to make to odd Christmas card, I've decided that due to postage costs apart from the odd one or two unless my cards can be hand delivered then then most of cards Christmas cards this year will be quite flat so they can go by normal 2nd class postage.

Back to my card...another card using the leaf mask and Sparkle Medium..which I have done on acetate and put the texture side to the card.
Being a glittery card it doesn't need much else on it so just popped a Spellbinders in the corner.

What a beautiful traditional card anne, i love the glittery leaves (I know all about glitter now!) and the fabulous layered poinsettia! Sure to brighten up a Christmas mantle!

You have fired me up to get creative with your pretty card Anne. I bought that leaf die and a couple of the sparkle mediums and they still sit unused are they thanks for the inspiration.

very sensible postage decision Anne - the new rates are a real bugger for us crafters :(

What a pretty card Anne. The leaves have such a lot of texture and the poinsettia is fabulous. I agree with you about making flatter cards for posting this Christmas, the cost is astronomical now isn't it?
