Reindeer Pull...

Only me again!

Tonight's second card comes from Colette :)

I just love the colours on this card, so bright and vibrant and completely different to the traditional Christmas colours!! This card also shows how you don't have to follow the kit, Colette has chosen to completely layer this up differently to how I designed it and yet still looks great :)

Colette has used our 'Reindeer Pull' card kit which you can find HERE.

Added extra's used:

Concertina Snowflake - Tim Holtz
Snowflake - Marianne Design Die
Silver Cord, Jingle Bells & Cats Eye Dazzlers - Meiflower

Another fabulous card from my wonderful Design Team!

Primitive Christmas...

Evening all,

WOW what a busy week I have just had!
November is full of birthday's which means family get together's, meals out etc etc so last week I actually only managed to spend 2 nights in the house so I am a little behind with everything :)

Tonight's card was made by Colette from the Design Team and it's one I just LOVE!!

Colette has used the 'Primitive Christmas Tree' card kit which can be found HERE.

I love the simplicity of the image and I would never have thought to use the kit with Kraft card :)

A little tip: If you don't want to make up the envelope that comes with the kit then just print the envelope front, cut off the top flap and then attach the reminder to the front of your envelope!

Added extra's used to complete the card were:

Kraft Card & Envelope
Nellie Snellen Border MFD023 Border 2
Ribbon & Charms from Meiflower

Stop by on Saturday to take part in our brand new challenges ;)

Bye for now!
