Frostyville Christmas Card

Good morning everyone! I hope everyone is well.

When I was down in Canberra it was great to catch up with my crafty friends. Mum and I always exchange bits and pieces from our stashes. It's a great way to try out different papers, inks and embellishments. 

I had afternoon tea with Phillipa and Trudi right at the end of my stay in Canberra. Phillipa and I did the same thing - Phillipa was lovely enough to give me some cardstock and I had some dies that Phillipa liked, so we spent some time cutting them out so she could have some. Now, Trudi isn't a 'crafty' person and was very patient with us while we did all this. Yay, Trudi!! lol.

Yesterday I received a package in the mail. Phillipa had put together lots of die cuts for me. It was such a lovely surprise and of course I had to start playing with them. 

Here is a card that I have made with the Frostyville Border die that was in my package.

With the package of dies that Phillipa sent me was a printout of a card that used this particular die and a die that I already own - Pine Tree Border. You can see the original card HERE. It was wonderful inspiration.

Once I had cut the Pine Tree Border, I embossed it with my Perfect Polka Dots folder to give the effect of snow.

The sentiment has been stamped with Versamark and embossed with silver embossing powder.

I would love to enter this card into the following challenges.

This Pine Tree Border reminds me of the Christmas Trees that would be cut so you could have a real tree.

  15. Wow! I love that the design of the card is CAS but those fabby dies (especially the snowflake border one) keep the card from looking simple.
