Christmas card 1

Seeing as I'm on continual early shift with the new puppy, getting up at a time I haven't seen for a good few years, DH suggested I spend the whole afternoon card making as I haven't been able to do any for a few days. I didn't need telling twice as this morning I had a delivery of my new Nesties - squares and scalloped squares - and I couldn't wait to use them. I'm going to find them very useful, especially the plain ones as I never seem to be able to cut squares accurately.

After seeing a gorgeous image on Scatty Jan's blog last night, I went straight over to Pink Petticoat and bought the set. Now I have a great reason to make a start on my Christmas cards!

This first card is the only one I've done with traditional Christmas colours.
DP from Monti's Pixel Playground.
Image from Pink Petticoat's Have An Ice Christmas set and coloured with Promarkers.
Ultra Fine Crystal glitter on the hat's bobble, the star and for the snow.
Core'dinations Whitewash card has been Cuttlebugged with Snowflakes folder and sanded.
Green mat is the reverse of the same Whitewash card, cut with Nesties scalloped square.

This is my card for Artydoll's red and green challenge over at MSE.

Beautiful card - I love the BP's, I had to have a closer peek at them as I thought you'd added glittered accents to the trees! x
