Missed a day, nearly!

Happy Wednesday!

It was only on checking this morning that I realised I had not scheduled a post for today!  Normally, due to work commitments, I have to schedule todays post on Monday.  However this week I seemed to miss this one somehow.  Its now half seven (here anyway!) and so here is another quick post.

Therefore here is a very quick, last minute Christmas card.  This one is, honestly, so easy to make.  I used a Do'crafts background stamp in gold on black cardstock.  This is decorated with strips of gold twine and a snowflake.

A little matting with white, black and gold and finished.  A card doesn't have to be timer consuming or complicated to look, hopefully, elegant.



  1. Hi John. Great quick card. I would, maybe, use a lighter background as it is very dark on my screen, but I am sure it looks different in "real life". Take care.

  2. Hi John

  3. Hola John
    Quick but gorgeous! And I recognise the Marianne snowflake. If I knew you had that set, you could have done your own mask hahaha!
    Have a great day.

  7. Luv this card - and it does look elegant and that style may be the answer to my Christmas cards this year as up to this point I have only made two - I was really organised in November and made thirty for an animal charity and unfortunately mine have fallen well by the wayside (I feel a few late nights coming on)!! xx GailT xx

  8. Definitely a case of less is more John, lovely card
