It's getting nearer!

Hi folks I have a day off today, whoop, whoop!  The first Saturday for months.  Mainly because I've swapped with a fella colleague having done a day for him during the week instead.  And the reason?
My eldest boy is home for the weekend so I have some quality family time planned.
I thought I would share this card I made for a close friend last week who wanted a gift/Christmas card for family.
This is what I came up with.


It has a wee pocket inside for the gift card.

I have used Spellbinder Poinsettia die, Foliage, Classic circle and Parisian motifs.  The card is from the Papeterie in Aberdeen and pearls from my stash.

Next week I shall be quiet on here again because I shall be getting ready for my Sunday demonstration in Aberdeen at the Papeterie. I will be demonstrating in the morning and teaching in the afternoon.  I have a few new ideas for you using the Christmas Spellbinder range but I have also got some of the new D-Lites dies too.  I am SO looking forwards to playing with them and sharing some ideas.  The Spellbinder dies just keep getting better and better.
I shall be fitting in a couple of days work at M & S too...boy it's getting busier, you would think that Christmas is on the horizon!

Have a super weekend all, I plan to.  x

Absolutely gorgeous!!!
You have done some other gorgeous cards with the center of the spellbinders cut out so it is more like a frame. I know you are busy with your son right now, but one day when you do another one of these style, could you tell us how to cut out the middle.
Do you just choose the smaller cirlel fro the circle dies and somehow affix it to the fancy cut image and then recut it?
Now that I am typing this, I think that is just what you must do!
