My first Christmas card!!

Well here is my first Christmas card...I've designed this one as my simple 'quick to make' design for this year (!) which I shall make several of quickly and then take my time making the more special cards for close friends and family. I went to the Creative Stitches and Hobbycrafts show yesterday and stocked up on new cutting dies amongst other things and so had to have a play last evening.......and here's the result! I've used a Go Kreate die to make the card blank, a Craft Concepts Merry Christmas embossing folder to make the background and highlighted with distress ink. The pine branch is a Marianne die cut from green card and the bauble (also a Marianne die) is cut from gold mirror card with red glitter card behind. A red bow completes the bauble. I've adhered the background and branch flat to the card and raised the bauble up with silicon to add a bit of dimension. Now to make a few more in varying colours...........

I'm entering this one in the Allsorts challenge - Keep it simple.

Thanks for looking......back soon x
