Christmas card #5

Good morning everyone, I hope you are well and that you haven't been affected by the strong gales and rain, and if you have I hope the end is in sight {{{{{hugs}}}}}

Thank you for all of your good wishes, my cough is now allowing me to sleep a bit better.

I was looking through my old stamps (as you do) and came across this sweet Elzybells one. I have very few cute stamps and don't usually make cute cards, but I couldn't resist this one and now he has been "found" I will certainly use him again :o)

It's not often that I am totally satisfied with my own cards (are any of us?) but I do have a soft spot for this one.
I finally bought a box of white linen card from Paper Mill Direct and I have to say that I am delighted with it. This is my first card using it.
Base card folded and cut to 7x5.
Stamped onto the same card and coloured with copics, then layered it onto red Papermania Textured card, the same as that used for the Memory Box Frostyville border.
Attached to base card with sticky foam strips. Added a smidgin of Glamour Dust to the snow and Voila, the finished card :o)
Jackie xx
