Christmas in June!

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you have had a good week and are ready for the weekend. We are going to the craft show in Portsmouth on Sunday it should be fun.

I am sharing one of the few Christmas cards that I have managed to make this year. I thought I would had loads made by now there just hasn't been time. I have made two lots of Christmas cards for Tattered Lace that I will share when the dies are released.


I have been recycling cards from last year again. That is where the image and sentiment came from. The original card was much bigger than my card. I used a circle die to cut our the image. 


I used a snowflake embossing folder for the background. I used gilding wax to highlight the embossing. 


I do like this sentiment it was part of the original card I cut it out with one of my dies. 


Just  a quick post I have a lot of catching up to do. 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. 

Take care

Hugs Jackie

  1. Love this card Jackie. I too am way behind with my Christmas cards but my excuse is the weather. It has been far too nice to be making Christmas cards, I couldn't get into the festive mood.
    Enjoy your craft fair

  3. Morning Jackie. A fab card...a good idea to recycle bits. I've got a drawer with cards in that might be ok for something else. I strip ribbon, bows and embellishments off cards to reuse too I'm ahead this year on my Xmas cards - 22 made so far! Karins challenge for one a week on Only Christmas cards/projects has kept me on track. Last year I moved and was way behind! Have a good time at show. Lea x
