We are lucky enough to have the lovely Hannalie of Desert Diva with us again as Guest Designer.  Please pop on over to see what she's come up with.

Here is my card:

I decided to go with a Christmas card to try and boost my stock.  I started off with a piece of pearl cardstock 18cm wide by 28cm long, scored at 3cm, 6cm, 10cm, 14cm and 21cm.  I placed my Large Fretwork Corner (Britannia Dies) on the 21cm line and put it through my eBosser.  I then die cut some vellum using my Marianne CR1287  trees and placed them on the mountain folds.  I die cut my Clearly Besotted Merry Christmas sentiment from vellum and place it along the front of the card.  I added some Star Dust Stickles to the trees and that was my card finished.  Not too sure if it's a bit plain but I do like white on white.

Now we are waiting to see what gorgeous creations you come up with.  Please pop on over to Addicted to CAS to have a look at the cards the DT have made.
