Christmas Card number 34

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope your week is off to a good start. We are now well into prep for our holiday it is another cruise this time to Norway. Today I am going out with a friend for a girly day shopping and having lunch.

Yesterday I did a bit of Design Team work and then I set about making a Christmas card. Now I have a bit of a confession last year I bought a lot of Sue Wilson's Festive dies and I didn't get to use most of them. So this year I have promised myself that I am going to try and use all of them at least once.

So I made a start on using them yesterday. I used the Poinsettia mini striplet. Now I discovered something rather cool the outer die from the Happy Perspective die set cuts a perfect mat for the mini striplet. 

I cut the Deboss snowflake die in gold. I used the outer die to cut two black mats to create a black surround. The Seasons Greetings was cut in red.

I am going to try something similar to this design with my other striplet dies. 

I had better get ready to go out. Enjoy your day. 

Happy Crafting.

Hugs Jackie

This is a beautiful Christmas card Jackie. I think we are all guilty of buying crafty stuff and not always using it especially Christmas stuff. My downfall is dies, just can't resist them and I have quite a few that I haven't used. Don't tell my hubby!!
Enjoy your holiday prep. We are on countdown too, only 3 days to go!!
