A Christmas Delivery

Hello Everyone,

I hope you have all had a happy Saturday and are enjoying the weekend. I'm concentrating on making as many Christmas cards as I can in the shortest time possible at the moment. If I had spread it out better throughout the year, I wouldn't be in such a spin - my own fault entirely.

Happily, this card couldn't have been quicker to make. I'd embossed the background months ago during an embossing session ... an attempt to use up the mountain of scrap card that I had accumulated. My thinking then was that it would save time one day, and so it has. The folder used is Let it Snow' from Crafts-Too.

 A piece of leftover red polka-dot patterned paper too made the ideal mat to layer the background on.

The topper is an image that was fussy cut and upcycled from a lovely card received one past Christmas.

The centre of the embossed snowflakes are embellished with red Stickles to give the card a wee bit of sparkle.

Given that I'm in cardmaking mode now, I think I'll be sharing a few more in the days and weeks ahead. So many cards to make, so little time!
