Saturday Spot

Hey! I've managed to find some crafty time amongst all the Christmas mayhem going on round here at the moment. I think I've actually got everything prepared and can sit back and enjoy some me time at last!

So today I made a Christmas card - going into my 2018 stash box - to enter the CUTplorations challenge.

Here's my card:

I was inspired by the grey tree and the oranges and reds I could see on the decorations. My grey tree was simply cut from some holly leaf embossed card. I stamped, coloured and hand cut the presents and popped them up on foam pads before attaching at the base of the tree.

The 'Believe' sentiment was cut once in red and also in white to give it more dimension and I finished off by adding three punched snowflakes.

Stamps: STAMPlorations, Warm Hands, Warm Hearts
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Dies:CUTplorations, Believe
Punch: Xcut, snowflake
Pens: Copic, N1, R24, R29, YR15, YR16

Huge thanks for looking today and I hope your Christmas preparations are all calm and enjoyable!

And keep crafting!
