Christmas rosette



The first of the final two Christmas cards from Christmas in July (seems a long time ago now!) and this one uses Pines & Poinsettias stamp set. I have to confess that this set really isn’t my cup of tea – but  I appreciate that I’m in the minority as it’s really popular with customers. And I do love both of the cards we made – I just found the stamp set hard to work with because it’s not really “me”.

This one is a CASE (only slightly changed) of a card made, I believe, by a UK demonstrator called Zoe.  I love how she incorporated the rosette into the card – and everyone loved having a play with the new Simply Scored tool at my Christmas in July event.

The main image is coloured with markers, which allows you to get all those fab different colours in one go. And that background paper is fab – those polka dots are all glittery!

  1. Not really me either, much preferred the penguins & snowman (though I did enjoy the class)

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
