John Next Door inspired Christmas card

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

How are you all? I hope you are well. My plan to share all my Christmas cards before the big day was scuppered yesterday as I was asked, at short notice, to make some more. Which I have done. I
 don't like to let anyone down.

I wonder if you can guess who I made this card for? It went in a parcel with some Jelly Babies and special Maltesers. It should have been received by now.


I started by cutting a circle from some read core card. I then embossed it with the Snowflake Circle Embossing Folder from the John Next Door range. I sanded the card so the snowflakes stood out more. 


I used the Christmas Scene Stamp set also from John Next Door to create the background I used the circle media plate. The stamps were all lined up on my Tim Holtz stamping platform. 


The ribbon came from a gift bag and the pearls were left over from making wedding flowers. I hate to waste anything. 


I was pleased with how this card turned out. You know I have got no idea how many Christmas cards I have made this year. That isn't going to help with planning next year. 

Enjoy your day. 


Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
