6 weeks today is…

Christmas day…eeeekkkk!!! And I am trying to be organised for my first proper year of making my own cards. So yesterday I had a play with some of my dies, embossing folders and some Sarah Hurley papers.  I opted for a really clean and simple look with white and turquoise.  I printed out a couple of different papers from the Tinseltown collection, and cut out some baubles using a Memory Box die.  I love these dies, they are really easy to use and the results are great every time. I embossed a sheet of white pearlised paper with a Sizzix folder to make the background look like snowfall, and layered it onto a sheet of “Snowfall” paper from Tinseltown. Hope you like the end result, it is completely different from my usual style of card.
