Christmas Cracker

Good morning and Happy Sunday to all my lovely friends and followers I hope you are having a good weekend and managing to keep safe and warm in these awful storms The wind has just howled here for the last three days.
The card I'm sharing today is the card I made at craft class last Thursday The blank cracker card design is from Craftwork cards. I'm sorry that the photos are not the best its been so dark here the last few days



The inside


Cracker Card Recipe

Blank card from Craftwork Cards
The Christmas papers are very pretty but not sure of the make as they were from a selection we could pick from.
The die cut snowflake circle and snowflake borders are cut from a Memory Box Frostyville Wreath die.I don't have the die but bought these ones pre cut on ebay a couple of years ago.
Sentiment stamp is from Whimsy stamps Winter Letter Seals
Narrow silver tinsel is from my stash
White Berries tied to the tinsel are Wild Orchid Crafts
Narrow silver ribbon Boyes Stores

Well this is going to be  my first full day in the house since I came back from holiday .I have had a very busy week with several school governor meetings, Christmas shopping and visitors last night and  next week is looking just as bad.  My plan today is to put the Christmas decorations up so I'll see how that goes I usually find I take a few days to get it finished  it also takes a while to bring them down from the loft .
Hope everyone is well and getting prepared for Christmas. Enjoy the rest of the weekend love and  hugs Carole x

What ab unusual shaped card Carole, but so nice for a change of festive designs.

Very stormy and windy here as well, crating weather I think.
