Morning Everyone,

My favourite type of cards to make are christmas cards and I am pleased tell you that I have joined Sparkles Christmas Challenge as part of their design team.  The theme for this month is "More than one Fold".  I decided to go with a z-fold as I haven't made many fancy folds so thought I'd better keep it straightforward!

I've been wanting this Stamping Up stamp set for ages and found it fairly recently at a reasonable price. It is retired so seems to go quite high on auction sites.

I embossed the tree stamp in silver and cut it out with an unbranded die set I bought. They do cut very well, but can be a little on the thin side.  The Inkylicious sentiment was also cut with the same die so it matches the top one when closed.  I've used soft sheen silver card and pearlescent white for the flower die, which is from Sue Wilson.

I hope you'll be able to join in with the challenge and if you'd like to pop over here you'll be able to see the lovely inspiration from the rest of the team.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Deep Ocean Challenge - Inspired by a song (Oh, Christmas Tree)
CCC Digi Creations - Must Use Flowers
Crafting by Designs - Anything Goes
Card Mania- Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting and I appreciate any comments you may wish to leave.

  11. Lynne, Perfect is your card. I like how the sentiment sits perfectly hidden under the fold of your tree. Very nice. Your colors are so soft and the flowers are beautiful. All in all....I'd say whoever receives this card will be very lucky.
