I dont know about putting the clocks back an hr I could do with putting them back a month or two!!
It's time again for the girls in the Christmas Card Club to show our cards using the theme set by Sylvie which is 'Anything Goes'.
So I had a rummage in my used christmas card pile and then another rummage but nothing was leaping out at me so I sorted through again and then again once more. I like to make two cards one using an old christmas card and then a corresponding card using a stamp,digi,die cut, embossing folder from my christmas stash in the theme for the current week. Finally on the fifth trawl through I spotted this card with shoes on and had a light bulb moment. I suddenly remembered that I had a Bugaboo digi image of a christmas shoe bought 3 yrs ago and not used so I was in business.
Next problem was to decide on a card shape. I didn't want to alter the card design too much so I came up with my version of a Joy Fold Card which I have named a 'Two in One Card.' The front has been slightly trimmed down and layered onto green card stock and opens up left to right .
This then reveals a second image which is a pre coloured freebie from making cards' Christmas Edition '2015 which I matted on to more green card stock and then onto a freebie paper from Making Cards 'Traditional Christmas ' Dec 2015. This section opens up right to left to reveal the inside.
Finally the inside of the card is decorated with more of the design papers in red and green and then I found some shiny sticker stars in my stash to mimic the ones on the card front and a sprig of holly Dimensions Sticker by Anita's. I also found some Season's Greetings stickers in my stash that matched. Yay.!

Now onto my second card which has been made in exactly the same way but using the Bugaboo 'Poinsettia Heel' digi which I have coloured using my Promarkers. I coloured up a second digi and fussy cut the poinsettia which is adhered over the image using a 3d pad. I used glossy accents on the centre of the flower, the heel of the shoe and on the tip but it is not showing up here .IRL it does though.
Card opens up left to right to reveal the second image below. Freebie pre coloured from Making Cards 'Christmas Edition 2015 Pretty Poinsettia' The plaid paper is a freebie from Making Cards 'Christmas Edition 2015 as well.
This then opens up right to left to reveal the inside of the card which has been decorated using another freebie paper from the same set . The poinsettia is a sticker by Anita's and the stars were stickers in my stash.

Thankyou Sylvie for making me think outside of the box for this challenge.
You didn't really think I'd let you go without showing a card with Acetate on it now did you!!!
This one is for Mo's' Rudolph Challenge' which closes tomorrow. The image is the last of the trio of Valerie digi's that I bought from Mo's digital pencil. I have already shown you one coloured in blue and one in red so went for green promarkers this time. Digi is called 'Valerie with Pup'( and I do believe Di that the doggy is a Scotty!) I have layered onto green vellum paper and then adhered to a scalloped card base. I have attached a piece of acetate to the front of the card cut to the exact shape of the green vellum (you can just see the reflection in the top right hand corner) and adhered with 3d pads which have been covered up on the front by a cunning ploy with black shimmer sticky circles.The sentiment is computer generated and cut out using a SU labels punch.
