A bit of Christmas humour

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all warm, well, and not being blown about. I haven't looked out yet to see what happening but the wind sure is noisy!  I hope that all those peeps in Scotland without power are soon restored...hugs

Thank you for identifying the dies used on my CAS Christmas tree cards a couple of posts ago. I have now put a bid in for them and I am waiting to see if I win!
As for the trapezoid frames, I 'found' them at a friend's house last night and we did a swap so I now have them, and she has what she wants in exchange LOL.

I 'rediscovered' Greetings Card Factory on my computer (not used it for years) and found the image I have used inside this card, so I knew what I wanted to do with it as soon as I saw it. I had previously created the base card and cut the window in it, then put it aside because I didn't know what to do with it!


Basecard is Papermill white hammered, folded and cut to 6x6, then window cut with Cheery Lynn Die.
Trees cut with Lea'bilities and Stars with Memory Box dies.
Unfortunately I can't remember how I converted the image to print it in Word, which means it will be a one off :o)

What a brilliant card Jack! Humorous and clever. If you've got a scanner on your printer, can't you scan the inside of the card and then you'll have the image to use whenever you want. xxx

I got the biggest giggle out of your card. I am not familiar with this card program but have something similar years and years and years ago. Yours is obviously much better...haha

Viv said...

Love this one Jackie, I still often use my GCF programme. Can't you just print straight from GCF onto your card, that's what I do?infact just did one this week as I had little time to make my LIM card this time lol ;) Viv xx

Great card Jackie - I had a good laugh at it. And the outside frame is just so perfect with the printed image - just made for each other.

I don't know how to convert the .fgc files to Word - wish I could suggest something for you.
