Christmas In June

OK - so it's 26 degrees outside and I've been inspired to make a Christmas card for my friend to give her son...

I'm not normally this organised but I was at The Range and I spied a mahoosive pack of Hunkydory's Christmas decoupage and toppers for £6 - started life at £25 so I got myself a bargain. They are beautiful quality - sturdy card and foiled highlights and there's enough to make about 30 cards. I've never been this excited since I found a Radley handbag in a charity shop for £3!!

I used an 8x8 inch silver base card and  some silver 'firework' patterned paper from my stash to give the effect of a blizzard. I added various bits of one of the topper sheets and the greeting was done using unbranded dies from my collection.

So easy but I have a real sense of achievement making Christmas cards in the summer!

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #400 - quick/easy Christmas TOP 5
Watercooler Wednesday's #176 - all about Christmas
