I am not English, but I celebrate Boxing Day. Why, you say? Because I came home on a past Christmas Day fresh from giving birth to my youngest daughter to find almost no food in the house. We had soup and crackers for dinner. Next door lived lovely people from England who when visiting to see baby Tanya, invited us to a special dinner on Boxing Day. What a wonderful memory that I suspect triggers my love for all my friends and visitors from England. Thanks for being my blogging friends!
Today I am posting my card for Pixie's Crafty Workshop # 342. It is a true snippets card. Still on my messy desk were/are a lot of left over cardstock bits including these letter negatives from a previous card. I've made this type of card before, last year I think. I am not sure who made the mirror silver paper, probably Stampin' Up!. The red sparkly snowflake is from My Favorite Things Filled with Joy die set cut from a snippet of glitter paper that is from SU. I used my trusty oldie but goodie Swiss Dots embossing folder from Cuttlebug for the background. It's one of my first embossing folders purchased when I started making cards in 2004. My, where has the time gone! The letters are from the Concord & 9th Joyful Noel die set. The dies are still available at last check.
Here is my card. I am quite satisfied, although Di is correct! cards with mirror cardstock are difficult to photograph. Now I have one Christmas card ready for next year!
Thanks so much for visiting today. I hope the rest of 2018 is good for you and Happy New Year!
