Christmas in September!!

Christmas alert, cover your eyes!!
I finally got to make some Christmas cards. Always dread starting them but once I get going there's no stopping me lol.
This is the first time I have used this globe die from Tattered Lace. Its a lovely die and makes a really nice card but the mechanism to get it to stand up is useless! I spent ages trying to get it sorted. My daughter eventually suggested putting a brace of card between the two flaps that were supposed to join together to hold it old. (they joined ok but the card would not stay upright). The brace has worked thank goodness.
Image - Digital Pencil Too
Papers - from my stash, acetate, red card
Dies - Tattered Lace globe and snowflake die, Die'sire santa sleigh die
Tattered Lace Greeting die
Medium - promarkers
Embellishments - beads, glitter

I am entering this into

Well that's me started so hopefully you will see more Christmas soon.
Have a great week everyone and thanks for dropping by.

This is beautiful and I love the image. Such a different shape to use, looks great if a little frustrating to get to stand up. Love this one.
