Traditional Christmas Colours

Hope your day is going well everyone. It is very cold here so after doing a bit of shopping I think crafting is definitely the way to go.

At Show us your Twinchies this time we are asked to make a twinchie using traditional Christmas colours. So many colours are used on cards these days but the green, red and gold always makes me think of Christmas.


Here is mine-a decoupaged poinsettia and some fine gold peel-off strip around the edge of the card.

I made it from this ribbon I have had for years and used for a few things. First I backed a bit of it with card and cut out the poinsietta shape and some leaves then I kept juggling various bits of the image to make it fit the twinchie as the ribbon was too wide.

Love Chrissie xx
