Last bit of Christmas - till September (maybe) !

Hi everyone.  So yesterday, in our area, we were under a tornado warning/severe thunderstorm.  The safest place to be is indoors and in the basement.  Now where is my craft room - in the basement of course :-) Guess where we spent most of the day?

I decided to have a go at a Star Fold card.  And here is what I came up with.

I used papers from a Polka Doodles Studio 12 CD - Picknix Collection 2, Gingerbread Twist.  I love how this came together.

The poinsettia and the wreath have been layered and I added some ultra fine glitter, they are just 1.25" in size. These and the sentiment are from the new Angelberry Christmas CD.  I had to cut my little pieces by hand for this card, as my Silhouette Cameo isn't working :-(  Silhouette are sending me a new power cable in the hope that is all it is, we shall see.

The topper is also from the Angelberry Christmas CD.  I inked all the edges of all the layers, and the topper, with Tim Holtz Tea Die Distress ink.

I might have to redo that inner topper - not sure if I like the glitter on that!

Well, I hope you all have a fabulous weekend.
