A last minute Christmas card........

Hello everyone - things have been pretty hectic lately hence my not posting as much as normal but I'm sure it's the same for everyone.  I recently bought the country landscape die from Memory Box and made this card.  I saw something similar on a blog a while ago but unfortunately can't remember which one.  I placed the die on an A5 card blank and ran it through my Joy Trouvaille.  I then cut a piece of navy card to size and punched a circle for the moon.  I then sprayed the navy card with Crafters' Companion Iridescent Glitter Spray.  The country landscape die cuts a convenient slit in your base card and you can then slip the navy card through from the back.  I lightly sponged shadows under the trees and houses using Faded Jeans DI.  I die cut the tree from black card - it's the Twiggy Tree also from Memory Box and edged the branches in white.  The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat printed out and cut to size.  I added some silver peel off borders and gems to finish off the card.

Thanks for dropping by.


  1. I love this card - I really must investigate Memory Box dies.

  2. Great card Karen, when I saw the card Jenny made I was very tempted to buy the die but for once resisted.
    I hope you have a Happy Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year
