Bright Christmas Card!

Hi there!  How fab to see you today, I have a Christmas card for you and its a bright one at that!  The weather is really dull and rainy today so bright is good!

I really enjoyed making this, it came from just playing about with scraps.  I pulled out a pile of left over bits of Christmas paper.  Some are years old!  I had made card templates of the size of simple Christmas trees I wanted then drew round them on the reverse of the scraps and cut them out.  I added some plain red card onto my white card base then glued the trees where I wanted them.  The snow bank is made from another scrap of  white card and I ripped the edge to look like a bank then glued that over the base of the trees.  I needed something to put along the top edge and I had two of the Memory Box Tinsel Ropes left over from a previous card I made and they were perfect!  The sentiment is stamped in red Versafine and came with a stamp set free with a magazine.  I used a white gel pen for the snow then added glitter to the snow bank and some gems for added bling.  The little wooden angel is from my stash.  I have a pack of them that I bought from a little gift shop ages ago along with some wooden snowflakes.  The angels are so cute!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Pixies Snippets Playground - use Snippets - my trees, tinsel ropes and snow bank are all from snippets.
That's Crafty - There must be an angel.
Bizzy Becs - Anything goes.

These are fabulous challenges, Definitely worth a peek!
Thank you so much for visiting me, I really appreciate it!  Take care. Christine xxx

Putting the BRIGHT in merry and bright. I do like this card, such a difference from your monochrome stag. You're all over creation with your creations these days. Kudos to you for following the muse.

Keep using those angels |Chris as they are perfect on this card. Love the Merry and Bright Card you have made - certainly cheerful for a dismal day (today the wind and rains are out in full force).
Sending love
