Non Tradional Colours

 Good morning.  I apologise to my friends in the Christmas Card Club because I am a day late with my card. I don't understand what happened to this past week because I ran out of days - I was sure that today was Saturday!  Senior moment!!  Actually time really does seem to be whizzing past.

We were very happy to get a phone call on Friday for John to have his Covid booster next day. It was an early appointment, 8 am in the next town, but we are both early risers so it was fine.  I ma just so relieved  that he has had it.

I fell back on a Crafter's Companion Diesire Create a Card die which takes the work out of crafting and gives a quick card but with pretty stunning results.

My Card

My card is 15.5 x 15.5 cms to accommodate the layers and made from Anna - Marie Designs cardstock because I love the weight of it. I layered it onto aqua glitter card and then onto the card base.  I put the centre die to one side and  I will use it to make a smaller card later.  I stamped the sentiment with aqua ink and die cut it with SB Classic Squares.    I added three snowflakes to the corner. The two white ones were already in my die cut drawer so I cut the aqua one to layer it up.  The large ones are Marianne Swedish snowflakes and the smaller one is a punch.  All it needed then was for me to add some Hobby House pearls in the corners and away we go - job done. 
Take care.

Hi Christine,
oh what a beautiful and stunning card.
I love the colours chosen that shade is one of my all time faves beside pink.
Love all the wonderful sparkle too.
Great news about John's booster jab my daughter had hers last week.
I am a few weeks behind her.
I too agree about last week and some other weeks they just seem to be flying by.
Updated my photo lately so it is me.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
