 I had some strips of the beautiful holly paper left over which I couldn’t bear to throw away. So I used it to make a CAS card. The sentiment was made using white embossing powder and a little bunch of Christmas foliage with a single poinsettia. 

I have enough Christmas cards and have decided to close down the craft room till after Christmas. Then I’m going to concentrate on cards for family and friends also for Christmas 2022. I also want to get back to Scrapbooking so plenty to do when the craft room reopens.

So for now Merry

Stamping Up Christmas

 I have been highly inspired by cards on Pinterest especially in this case I actually had the papers, although  the snowflakes and foliage are from various other dies. 

The sentiment is an old one from Stamping Up along with punch I used which I also drew round and made a mat for it to help it stand out.

Fluffy Snowflakes

 I got some White Puff Twinkle WOW embossing powder but I'm not sure about it. Yes my Snowflakes using the Honey Bee background stamp (I think its Honey Bee) puffed up fluffly like but I'm not sure I like the fluffy finish. 

Wasn't going to waste the card though so I used the Merry die from MFT from last year that I never used then had to hunt for a Christmas sentiment on it own. To be honest it didn't really need much else.

I not sure about using my phone to take card photos, they seemed to be more crooked, weird colours than the camera. Will have to investigate more whether I need to change modes on the actual phone camera rathen then point and hope for the best!

Christmas Words

 Mmmm still not sure about using my phone for photos lost some detail on my poinsettias. Any way what’s done is done. 

I had this bit of MFT Christmas word background left over that needs to be used which is why I added the spray of poinsettias. Looking at it now I could do with adding a few more Pine needles. Didn’t bother with a sentiment there are loads already there.

I’ve been for my booster, now have a dodgy arm so not sure if I will get any cards done but we will see.
