Afternoon, Well what a sunny afternoon it has turned out to be. Just out from a lovely walk along the beach with the dog. Its a bit chilly at first but once being out in the sun for a while its really lovely.
Well i'm truly in the middle of christmas card making now, its always strange making christmas cards when the sun is out and its warm in the summer time. its a brill feeling this time of year making christmas cards while the sun is out but there's a chill in the air. just makes it feel even more christmassy. Why not have a bit of christmas music on in the background.....i do haha.
One that i have made is using this die from Tattered Lace that i bought last week on Create and Craft. It arrived on Monday and i just had to play instantly with it. Its called "The most wonderful time of the year" die. its so detailed and elegant and although this a 8x8 card, im so tempted to make this my own personal card for friends and family, but making it a 7x7 card size. as it says the title of the famous christmas song, i just had to add a couple of versus of the song, it just makes it more fun and compliment it all, i embossed the background card using a music not embossing folder. Used some wine coloured textured card stock and silver mirri card, satin ribbon and bang, the card is complete.
