Christmas

 Good evening everyone the card I'm sharing today is a bit different no painting or stamps Its a DL shape and mainly dies. I've seen this style around various sites so thought I'd give it a try. I have made it to use eventually for the craft group I go to . We have just recently got back together and the small group of us are meeting every two weeks it was so lovely to get back with my craft friends face to face.





Card Recipe

Blank DL card
Papers are from a pad I bought last year from The Works
Dies are 
Banner dies MFT
Poinsettia die is Spellbinder
Star shape dies
