Time Out!

 

I'm sooooo tired, still haven't finished making all of my Christmas cards yet but at least I've got the postal ones made,written and sent  on their way. My daughter's convinced me to sit and watch a Christmas favourite of ours,"Miracle on  34th Street" so I'm watching with one eye and writing a post with the other lol!
If you've never seen the film, you really ought to, it's a real, feel good film!
 


 
I needed a simple design for a card and came up with this one using my lovely Fishtail Flags which I nested in order to cut a narrow window in the larger flag, slightly shaping and placing over a stamped sentiment. A bit of paper piercing a gorgeous die cut snowflake topped with a Swarovski Hot Fix Flat Back White Pearl completes the card. Not quite a five minute card but once you've got all the die cutting done, assembling doesn't take too long.  
In a recent post I showed a variation of a design and the same goes here, the usual last minute request for a birthday card came whilst I was making the Christmas cards so I tweaked the design slightly, used up a leftover patchwork flower and paper pierced around the edges.
 
 


I'm using these cards for the following challenges:-
ABCCC, Favourite die cut,
PPC107, Christmas,
CTO93, Christmas anything goes,
CMC10, Snowflakes,
HOCC27, Christmas,
Lexi 80, Snow,
MIM, Anything goes.
 
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x

Lovely. Great idea to use the reverse image of the die for the sentiment.
