Magic of the Season

Mewnin' peeps!
 
Hope you are surviving this horrid weather - not good :(
 
Just a reminder before I show you my card, don't forget to enter to win some fabulous blog candy, 65 (yes, 65!) sheets of K and Company 12" x 12" paper. The rules of entry are in the previous post.
 
Anyway, here is today's card, very simple and cute.

What I used...
 
Stamps: Joyful Greetings - Paper Smooches
Papers: Snow Day Collection 6" x 6" Pad - Crate Paper
Die: Tim Holtz Washer Border (657826) - Sizzix
Card stock: white
Ink: Onyx Black - Versafine
Baker's Twine: Purple Plum - Divine Twine
Adhesive gems: Iridescent Shimmering Dots - Papermania
 
How I did it...
 
Cover the top three quarters of a white A6 blank with snowman paper. Die cut a piece of the large scallop paper with the Washer Border and adhere below the snowman paper. Wrap twine around the card a couple of times (to cover the join) and tie in a bow at the left.
 
Stamp a sentiment onto white card, cut into a banner shape, mat onto red diamond paper and trim. Attach to the right of the card, over the twine with foam tape. Embellish the card and sentiment with a few shimmer dots.
 
There you have it! A very quick and simple card. Perfect for last minute makes as the Christmas season quickly approaches.
 
Off now to finish a design I'm doing for a charity organisation - I will tell you more about it soon....
 
Thanks for dropping in. Tatty bye for now. xxx
