Happy Christmas

This I  hope will make up my tally of Christmas cards for this year.
But you always have to be ready for that unexpected arrival.
Today I have picked a previous sketch for
and chose No 27 for April 2014

Here is my take

I love that paper it's from Wild Rose Studio
The snowflake embossing folder is a Cuttlebug one.
The punched lace is an EK punch and 
the greeting is by a Cheery Lyn.
I cut out 2 in white and 1 red then layered them off setting the red.
This is not easy unless you have a ballpoint Zig glue pen.
I don't so it was back to the toothpick to spread the glue for me.
Fingers crossed it wont fall to pieces.

Am entering this in:

Winter Wonderland - Dies and punches
Christmas card Challenges - Anything goes

Thanks for dropping in and I hope you enjoyed your visit.
Hope you have the time to stop and say Hello.

  1. Good morning Margaret,
    Love your stunning card, everything is just perfect.
    Have a great day,

    If you spread some glue on the back of your hand then drag the fine or lacy Die Cut across.
    You will get enough glue to attach. Hope this might help.

  2. Good morning Margaret. Your card is just stunning, love your whole design. It's funny Partricia telling you to put the glue on the back for your hand I just found out this way a few weeks ago from Patricia as I was saying what a pain it was to get the glue on. Hazel x

  4. Hi Margaret
    Super card and love the shadow effect on the lettering.
    As Patricia says, glue on the back of you hand works well or if you have a skin reaction to that, put some glue on a bit of sponge and dab it on.
    Best wishes.
