Silver tree...

Happy Monday,

Hopefully today I am having a nice relaxing day off after 4 days at the NEC in Birmingham though I will probably be tidying the craft room!

Today's card utilises a piece left over from a previous demo which I made using my Winter Trees clear stamps et and the circular media plate.  I simply added a piece of my double sided adhesive over the image and added clear glitter to add some shine. I then mounted this onto a die cut mirror card circle before a panel of gold dust card embossed with my star stream embossing folder.

I added this to a card embossed wit the same folder with a piece of wired ribbon ( bought from Mrs Duck) folded down the side.  I finished with a spray of poinsettias cut in white velum and finished with a  pearl.



  1. Morning John, a gorgeous card love the ribbon.

    I bet you don't rest much today.

    Rest is a 4 letter word you don't know the meaning of. I think your batteries would need to be removed for you to actually stop still lol!
    This is an early sharing of our Christmas card for this year (it's easier if I pick my own lol!).
    Gorgeous design and just my colours and you have used that ribbon beautifully.....also available in gold folks 😉😉😉
