Christmas Card

Hello Everyone. Nice to have you drop by and thank you for calling in. We are going to an 80th birthday party today which starts off with Sunday Lunch in the Old Town so it should be a fun day.


At The Craft Room Challenge this time the theme is anything 3D


I made a fairly large Christmas card with some sewing and a folded Christmas Tree. The tutorial for making the folded tree is here if you would like to try it. I made the music sheet in Paint Shop Pro and the snowflakes were die cuts I have had for a while. Not sure what make the die is. I took the photograph with my wonderful Christmas Cactus as background it is full of very beautiful flowers.

I am also going to join Marina at My Perfect Life with this card-she has motivated me to make Christmas Cards a bit earlier this year.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie x
