Cute Card Thursday Challenge - Christmas in July

Ive been rather naughty today, Im posting a card that I created last year to enter for this challenge, I hope you approve. I have stamped the two Magnolia characters onto white card and coloured them with my Karisma pencils then cut them out completely.

The base card is a A4 card folded in half, with one of the Cute Companion Christmas design sets, this one is of a tree and snowman in front of a iced up pond, this was stuck to the left hand side of the card. Over this I have attached a piece of Acetate, onto this I have stuck my cut out characters and then I have punched out some holly leaves and stuck them onto the acetate in and around the tree and bush, I also used some red stickles to create berries. Ive also done the same with some snowflake shapes, to create the scene that they are skating on the pond and its snowing.

The greeting is one that I typed out and printed from my computer and this was layered up and stuck under the acetate onto the card. To attach the acetate to the main card I have punched out two holes along the fold and stuck a piece of ribbon through to hold them together.

Hi Shirly, I am loving this card, if you hadn't told us how you created it I'd have thought you stamped it all. It's stunning.

Sorry not been by for a day or two, hopsital yesterday and today with my mouth and not on top of the world and afraid bloggings gone a bit by the wayside. I'll have to get my act together else I'll find my lovely followers all desert the sinking ship.

Have a good weekend, lets hope this rain and thunder abates.
