Seasons Greetings

Hello all!
It's a beautiful day here in Norfolk. The chickens are happily strutting around the garden. They have been dust bathing and Dolly (the white one) is now the colour of mud. Doh!
Today I would like to show you a card I rustled up yesterday. It's like one I did for a post last Christmas, though I have altered it slightly.
So here we are...

What you need...

Stamps: Warm Hearts - Paper Smooches
Stamps: Swanky Snowdudes - Paper Smooches
Ink: Onyx Black - Versafine
Card stock: aqua, white
Embossing folder: D'Vine Swirl - Cuttlebug
Dies: Framelits Circles - Sizzix
Promarkers: Bright Green, Burnt Sienna, Lime Green, Lime Twist, Lime Zest
Flat backed pearls: red, white

What you do...

Die cut a circle of aqua card and attach to the bottom of a kraft blank 11.5cm x 13.5cm. Stamp and colour in the trees, cut out and stick to the circle.

For the snow, emboss D'Vine Swirl onto white card, cut into wavy sections, cover the bottom of the card with one section securing with double sided tape, then overlay with another section using foam tape.

Stamp the sentiment onto white card, trim into a banner and attach to the top left corner and add a few pearls to finish.

I love kraft card and I think this colour combo works really well. What do you think? Are you a fan of kraft card?

I'm going to pop off now. I'll be back soon with a quick little card I've done using the fabulous new Basic Grey collection... 25th and Pine.

Thanks for calling in, see you soon :o}
