Christmas cottage


Hi, I put this card together from bits and pieces of cardstock and designer paper in my snippets box. It was fiddly but fun to do. I'm still on holidays though so my time is mine, so to speak!

There are a few Christmas challenges at the moment. Merry Monday at Always Playing with paper, has a month long anything goes as long as it's Christmassy theme.

The Paper Players have a Christmas in July theme.

At Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge, theres a tic tac toe challenge.


My ribbon has glitter edges and I used pearls in my flowers.

Materials used: Memory Box & Poppy stamps dies -window, fence, grass, flower stems, scallop and label; Martha Stewart branch punch; a flower punch; Sizzix Tim Holtz embossing folder; ribbon, bling & sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)

  6. What a spectacular scene you created! This is such a lovely Christmas card! I can picture some little house with a window and fence just like this. That embossed background is perfection.
