Snowflake Square Christmas Card.

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? I haven't got so much planned this week so I am hoping to make some more Christmas cards. This year I am so behind on my makes. I think we are going to have to buy some cards. At least the postage will be cheaper I do find it hard to make flat cards.

Last week we had a lovely meal with some friends at a local pub. While we were there  picked up there Christmas menu. When I saw it I realised that I would be able to use some of the images to make Christmas cards.


I have been finding it hard to craft. When I get going it is alright it is the starting that is the problem. I did treat myself to some of John Next Door's new Christmas dies. That did seem to help a bit. The background paper is the cover of the Christmas leaflet from the pub.  I cut the Snowflake Square die in white glitter card the grey mat behind and the black mat with the die set. 


I used the Poinsettia stamp set with the matching dies. The flowers were shaped with a ball tool and make. The Ivy Spray die was cut in green glitter card. 


The sentiment is one of his too cut in white and black. 


Enjoy the rest of the week. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

Gorgeous card Jackie :) Sorry that you've been struggling creatively, hopefully you're mojo will come back, I can totally identify and I'm finding I get easily distracted as you know. I am also so behind with my Christmas cards, must get a wiggle on, I'm making some more box cards they fold flat for postage but pop up to look dimensional, saves a fortune in postage, will be adding some examples to my blog soon. Sending hugs and a sprinkling of creativity dust my friend xxx
