My first Christmas card for 2014

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all safe, warm and dry in this latest wild and wet weather...hugs
As the title says, this is my first for Christmas 2014, but I actually made it on Christmas Eve 2013.


It's a very simple card. Base card is plain ivory folded and cut to approx 6x6.
I used the negative from my Memory Box Frostyville Border die and the letter were cut with my newly rediscovered Quikcutz dies. It's amazing what you find when you move your craft stuff from one room to another :o)

Oh to be organised enough for the next Christmas Jackie, one day perhaps !

Very effective using the negative of the die and good use of the waster as well.

Have a good weekend.

Ohhh, what cool idea Jackie - I love it. So elegant with the red and white.

I have just moved Craft Rooms (which is why I haven't been blog visiting this past week or so) - and it is like a treasure hunt! It is amazing what you forget you have - and then sometimes I find something that I have no memory whatsoever of buying - or indeed, WHY I actually bought it LOL!!
