It's Beginning....

to look a lot like Christmas!

Ok hands up if you saw the coke ad on the tv at the weekend.

Its not Christmas (or at least we cant start the countdown in our house) until you see that advert.

The countdown has begun!...........

Over the weekend, I decided to make a few Christmas cards.  Now trust me when I say Im rubbish at card making!!  I can never think of any ideas at all.

So I had a little look around the internet (read that as mainly Pinterest lol, love that site!) and spotted this, a dimensional ornament card.

Simple but elegant, so I thought Id give it a try.  Heres my version, not the best pic Im afraid as I took it quickly with my phone.

I had to use just my regular round punch as I didnt have the MS Starburst, but the effect is similar.  Good way of using up some old papers or scraps too.

If you fancy giving it a go, then why not pop over to Creativity Prompt dot com where youll find a video tutorial.
