Well here goes..... My first attempt.... I have entered this card into the Winter Wonderland challenge  'Clean and Simple' Christmas card. I need to get started on all those Christmas cards and haven't left myself much time. I was looking for a card to make that was quick and simple to produce. I have also entered it into the following challenges:

Little Claire monthly challenge 'Christmas'

Products used:

  • White and dark green card
  • My Minds Eye 'Snowed in' Winter papers
  • Spellbinders nestabilities - petite scalloped circles small
  • Red Gingham Designs -Cold, Crisp Kisses - tree stamp (in association with
  • Lili of the valley - Christmas sentiments -stamp set
  • Memento ink pad -tuxedo black
  • Green and sparkly ribbon from
  • Crystal Glamour Dust
  • Promarkers in soft green, tea green and pine.
I made a 14.5cm square card blank and matted and layered with dark green card and the patterned paper. Ribbons were wrapped around the card as shown in the picture and secured with double sided tape. Next I stamped the Christmas tree stamp onto white card and using my sizzix big shot and spellbinders die templates cut it out and embossed it. I then matted this onto a larger scalloped circle in dark green. I coloured the tree with promarkers and highlighted the mistletoe with glamour dust. Finally I stamped a sentiment onto white card, cut out using a small scalloped circle spellbinders template and affixed to the card. Hope you like it. x
