My Time to Craft - Yuletide Wishes

I decided to include a few other challenges with that from My Time to Craft this week. I seem to have had little time for blogging or blog challenges for that matter, as I have been desperately trying to complete all my personal Christmas cards. It would be a defeatist situation as a cardmaker, to have to go out and buy some wouldn't it! Anyway, I have just about got there, so hopefully things should be on a more even keel soon.
The Creative Card Crew required Gold or Silver, and Crazy4 Challenges wanted the theme of Snowmen or Snowflakes. Over at a Spoonful of Sugar the theme is monochrome, so this is for that challenge too!
I used some gold, snowflake patterned vellum, secured with brads to which I added tiny pearls. The image is from Papermania (which I just bought for half price) and is heat embossed with gold. The sentiment was treated similarly and is from Docrafts.
I decorated the punched snowflakes with a little Glamour Dust.
A bit of good news is that I have found both my card cash box and my camera charger! How cool, is that! If I'd had a better memory they wouldn't have been lost in the first place!


  1. Ooh is lovely and rich. Think a lot of people have been a bit scared of the detail on this set of stamps..I love 'em.

  2. Beautifully elegant Chrissie!
    Keryn :D

  3. Absolutely beautiful card Chrissie and very elegant too. Glad you're nearly there with your cards, sadly I'm nowhere near but there is still time :D. Hope you're well. Chris :)

  4. Very classy card, lovely colour combo :o)

  5. Gorgeous card. Do you find the postage is a problem now? Does the embellishment not mean you have to use large letter post? I was caught out with this yesterday and wondered if others have had this problem.
