Another first...Christmas cards

Inspired by the challenge on the scrapbook sisters challenge I had a go at making some Christmas cards, I am pleasantly surprised by how well they turned out..   

This is the first card I made using the brief over the edge from the scrapbook sisters challenge, both the silver card and and the scalloped circles are over the edge, so i hope it fits!

There's a lot of detail in this little tree, I'm quite pleased how the mix of colours worked but not sure about the baubles..
the stamp is from a christmas collection by papermania, a bit of bargain at Scrapbook Sisters

Having done a traditional colour way I thought I would have a go using up some papers in my stash, I like the idea but next time the trunk of the tree will be a silver colour, as I think the black is too strong

I also need to learn how to photograph mirror card, without having pink tinge of my face taking the photos!


  1. Good for you! thanks for joining us in this weeks Scrapbook Sister's card challenge. That mirror card is such a pain to photograph without getting a mug shot at the same time.You know how much I dislike having my photo taken,that's probably why I keep mirror card to a minimum lol! You've now got your first follower! Julie.x

  2. Sorry,no you haven't,there's a google prob, will try again later:) x

  3. Great start on your Christmas cards!! Thanks for taking part in this weeks Over the Edge Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge, hope to see you next week!
