I started with Sassafras lass ('in stitches') papers, I used frolic for the base card and some of the other colours for the backing of sentiment and the flower.

Papertake - Tree
Wow, that was a good response! We had some lovely cards again this week! Thanks to everyone who took part!!This weeks challenge is Christmas Trees! (sorry, I know that one of the other challenge blogs have done tree's this week but the challenges are set for the design team a week in advance! Sorry folks!) Anyway, if you'd like to take part, we'd love to see your creations!
I created the frame with my nesatabilities and the tree from cuttlekids die. Added some glitter and raised on 3d foam to DCWV paper.
OOOOOOooooooooohhhhhhhh - New Stash.....
Santa's Little Extra Helper no 5: Baubles, Bells & Bows
The cards that are being shown for Keryn's Golden Highlights dare are beautiful and show just how the smallest touch of gold can lift a design and make it extra-special. There's still plenty of time to join in with that one as we're only halfway through a DCM week! However, if you're ready for another little challenge, or still need some help getting those Christmas cards made then Santa's Little Extra Helper is here again with a new theme for you to work on
This week we'd love to see you making cards on the theme of

I have wanted to try a pocket card like this and was asked to make a card for a friend, so gave it a go. Most of it is die cuts (surprise!) I just love using them, can't help myself!
It's quite simple to create, I used the length of 12" x 4" this way it fits into c5 envelope when folded.

Curvy card Attempt
Piles of Parcels
we'd like you to put some gorgeous, tempting, beautifully wrapped Christmas parcels on your cards this time.
Unfortunately I don't have the template for the curvy card but attempted it myself it's free hand drawn and cut. The hinge is at the top so it's different really. Thanks & congrats to Louly for the design.
I had fun with all the little parcels, lots of papers and glitter gel pen of course!

DCM - Getting Corrugated
I seem to have developed a little bit of a fixation with old cardboard boxes....! My dare this week is to use some corrugated card on your card - it could be corrugated craft card or an old box etc. taken to pieces :) You could make the card blank from it or die cut shapes etc...
Well, like Jo I seem to have old cardboard boxes and new ones all over the place so for materials I had loads to work with!
I die cut the holly, word and stocking in the corrugated card applied to frames and applied glitter all round the edges.
Thanks for looking and come back soon!

DCM - Little Extra
So looking through my stash I was surprised to find... No decent snowmen, so decided to make my own.
I have the snowflake cuttlebug die so that bit was easy, I used some embossed vellum.
I also put glitter on the snow on the trees and the snow and his hat.
Thanks for stopping by, come back soon...

Get Well Soon
I am loving this paper, I think it's called playfull.
I also used some DCWV old world (greeny colour).
I die cut the flowers and layered, then fixed them with an eyelet (I am loving my crop-a-dile finding any excuse to use it!) Applied stone in centre of each, they do sparkle much better IRL.
I die cut the decorative strip and applied either side of the message (HOTP sentiment) stamped & embossed.
The butterfly I cut by hand, applied stones to wings and attached to front with 3d foam.
Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon, Have a good Tuesday!
