Topiary Christmas


It seems like ages since I posted anything but now I am back and have cards lined up to share with you all.

For this card I used a lovely lily of the valley stamp , coloured with promarkers and then fussy cut before adhering to my white base card.

I never was any good at making fussy cards they always looked like someone had had an explosive regurgitation of craft items onto what I was trying to create , and similarly I struggled with clean and simple , although my cards were pretty plain. I am now finding clean and simple easier and no longer have to fight the urges of feeling I need to add more even though it does sometimes feel its cheating a little bit.

I  used one of my dies to emboss the edge of my base card, I love how doing something so simple can turn a plain base card into something that has a classy or elegant look.

I did think about adding a sentiment which would also have been a die cut but decided on reflection that it really didn't need it.





I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Allsorts -  Christmas

The Pencil case - anything goes

Colour crazy challenge - anything goes 

Alphabet challenge - T for trees

Brown sugar- anything goes
