Starting Christmas Cards

I've been doing quite a few Christmas cards and 3 d  items and as usual this is my favourite colour combination. Very traditional I know! but I can't help myself . One of my class was asking for a simple card using stamps you can also use all year so this is what I came up with. Using everything Eleanor with Morning Meadow or Flower Shop with the greeting from Special Season the  berries are stamped used the rubber on the end of my pokey tool!

Stampin Connection

Over the weekend I placed this ornament on a website for stampin up demonstrators, imagine my delight when I returned to the sight to find it was the top sample this was a really proud moment to think that so many people had left such lovely comments and bothered to have a closer look at my creation.
it was made using 4 lattice dies scored and folded like a fan
with a single cut to the middle. Glue the centre folds together and then glue each piece together. place a large circle in cherry cobbler behind  and glue and a stamped flower from the hostess set morning Meadow or Flower Shop in the centre and a frosted Finish Embellishment from the Autumn winter Cattalogue.

Where does it go, I seem to be working hard but not a lot to show for it.

I've been using up some scraps from my old paper stash  to make these cards. Although there is 0one using this years fabulous new /Christmas Paper Winter Frost . I loving this paper, I'll be showing other cards I've made using this paper.soon.

These are called sundial cards fanning out for a point on the edge of a piece of card then attached to your main card.
