Christmas Card Club Challenge - Attempt No 2

Hello again!

Well if you read my earlier post you might have come to the conclusion that I wasn't too happy with my card. LOL! I said I was going to try again, and here is my second Kraft card. I am so much happier with this one.

My Card

I think I just went into panic mode before. This morning the pressure was off because I had already posted my card. I went through my Christmas papers and found this which  is from a pad I got last year at the NEC and it is called Handmade Holiday from Simple Stories. A few sparkly snowflakes and Bob's your uncle! Finito! And a happier Christine. In fact, I actually like this and might make a few more because there are a few pages of this design. Very simple Christmas make.

Love and hugs from Christine xx

  2. I loved your first card Christine, but this is certainly much more Christmassy if you like and the plaid paper also gives it a lift. Well Done you. Hugs Rita xx

  6. Another fabulous card Christine and I think I like it better than the first one because it's more colourful, even though I love kraft this one is more Christmassy - if that makes sense! Karen xx

  16. Well Christine, I have looked at both of them and they are both equally beautiful. I think we are always more critical of our own work but I can honestly not see any reason why you need to be. Lovely cards.
