Hello Thursday - Springy Christmas :-)

It's Thursday and I hope that your week is going well.

This is the last of my samples (for now) to share with you, although I will be back tomorrow with my make for the challenge at Polkadoodles for our inspiration post, I might even give you a sneaky look at the end of this post :-)

So, once again using the wonderful new release, available for pre-order now! Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun.

I have used another delightful pre-coloured image and what now seems to be my go to technique of layering up the images.  I love doing this, as it adds so much depth to the card.

My card is a spring fold card and I did a tutorial for this, many moons ago, and you can find it HERE.

I really love this card shape - you could even use it to make some fabulous table decorations - hmmm now that's an idea !

I couldn't resist adding two of the lovely poinsettias on either side of the spring fold.

Love all the depth to the layers and I have inked all the edges.  The red layer has been cut using Spellbinders Large scalloped square.

Aren't they super cute!  And I love the vibrancy of the colours - Nikky's colouring is amazing!

And OK, OK, here is the little sneak peek.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.

  18. Super cute! I really love how you layer up your images for extra dimension and interest.

  19. So super cute. You must share sometime what you use as an envelope solutions for a card like this. Since I did the spring fold for an invitation, I found the size awkward to place in an envelope. What do you do?

  20. This is so pretty, lovely bright colours. Thank you for sharing this with us over at Crafting for all Seasons. Sue DT xx
