Christmas Comes Early

I thought I'd upload a Christmas card today as I have been trying to make a start on them early this year (this is early for me).
I used Penny Black's Xmouse Ornament stamp which i got for £3.50 at Ally Pally, what a bargain! Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder on DCWV card stock then I went over the embossed part with a nail buffer so the white core shows through. Xcut and fiskars snowflake punches coated in doodlebug sugar coating and with a gem in the middle. I also glittered around the edge of the card with glitter glue.
I think I'll make these little nesties cards for my work friends this year.

Love the card.Saw this tip on cards from Nesties-don't know where-.Cut two shapes and score a fold about 2.5 cm down from one edge on one shape only. Glue together creating a hinge. It works and is much easier than folding first and leaving a linked bit uncut when you cut out. Means you can use thicker card too.Hope you get the picture. Its not easy writing destructions
