Now because my mind works in mysterious ways (unbeknown to everyone including me sometimes) I took this to be animals that you wouldn't necessarily expect to see on your everyday christmas card!
I had a rootle through my used christmas card box and found this card front that has been in there forever, waiting for just the right moment to make an appearance. I trimmed the side edge nearest the fold to neaten and then had the idea of adding my beloved acetate to the front of it. I found a piece of snowing acetate which I cut down just a tad and adhered to the front of it with green brads.
I realised I only had a few left of certain colours so I diverted off to Ebay for a bit ( well quite a while actually as I got side tracked even further as one does) to purchase some more. I ended up buying some bits and bobs and would you believe it forgot the darn brads!!! Then I went in search of a sentiment (in my words box) to use and found this Xcut die cut which I thought was perfect and cut out in an oddment of green card that matched the green edging. Popped the whole card front up on 3D tape added a piece of darker green ribbon from my stash and the card was done.
Lastly here are 3 slider tags that I made last year to sell at a christmas fayre that I haven't gotten round to blogging about . The Polar Bears and Seal all slide up and down on the tag. Images were from a freebie stamp set in a magazine. These are just a few of them. I made Penguins too but as they are classed as birds they are not being shown here.
Okay. Gotta scoot I have Brads to buy! See you soon or not depending on what else I get diverted with.
