Good Tuesday morning to all
I hope you all had a lovely weekend, even with those spectacular Thunder storms, weren't they scarey. The lightening was flashing every second, but when the main storm came it was immense.The lightening came down to earth and then spread out fingers across the sky, and it was brighter than daylight, I have never seen anything quite as spectacular and frightening at the same time, but couldn't help throwing back the patio doors and watching the show!!.
Hope you all have a happy, healthy & hot week. Not too hot for you though Jane.
Well it's CHRISTMAS. In July how mad!! I hope you like my first Christmas card, If not I will try harder next time.

I started by matt and layering with black, silver glitter & coconut white card, and embossed the top layer. I made another layer in the same way but a lot smaller and attached it to the side of the card with sticky pads for dimension. I then made a picture frame with the spellbinder matting basics. I cut a piece of card the same size with a piece of sticky sheet and added the iced snow and stuck to the back of the frame with sticky pads. Then I cut a bauble covered it in perfect medium and sprinkled silver embossing powder over and heat embossed, I did that twice ti make it look more like metal, added the peace sentiment and put some gems around it. I then cutout several sizes of the classic poinsettia in coconut white and the open petal dies in silver glitter card, and cut the leaves from the same sets in green & coconut white card. Next I cut 2 holly sprays and cut them to arrange around the poinsettias. Finally I added a gem to the middle of every snowflake.
I hope you like it, Merry Christmas everyone!! ( SORRY ).
Big Hugs to all :-)
