You may remember that I recently made a thank you card using lollipop flowers and I said back then that I wanted to have a go at making a Christmas card the same way. I've finally got around to it and was so pleased with the result that I had to take it into work just to show it off (I really don't know how they put up with me sometimes!)
So hear it is. Base card is a trifold with the front double embossed with snowflakes and swiss dots. I did both because it looked too stark with just one so the snowflakes are underneath with swiss dots on top as they are easier to match as I had to emboss in stages. The die-cut "Christmas" was from Di's die-cuts and has been embossed with cuttlebug snowflakes.
The "snowballs" across the top of the hills are from a roll of wrapping ribbon tfrom Home Bargains (of course). The lollipops were 'borrowed' from Costa Coffee because the top of the die-cut Christmas trees was too thin for a standard lollipop stick. Background is black glitter paper (does anyone know where I can pick up some more without having to pay a fortune for p&p) with a glitter star.
I'm planning on making 2 or 3 more of these for close relatives and friends (just as long as I can find that glitter paper!)
