Be Merry


Today I'm sharing a simple card

Cornelia's card is a real stunner and I took inspiration from
several of her design elements.

I used green and gold as my colour palette,
with gold embossing to add that metallic element.
I tried to put a reindeer next to my tree, but the size just didn't fit well,
so I opted for that little penguin instead.
Then I placed the sentiment in a similar place to Cornelia's
and sprinkled a couple of sequins.

Crafting Tip: I was so tired of all my scissors being sticky from cutting
foam tape that I raided the garage. 
I came across WD40. 
Sprayed it on the scissors - left them for half an hour and then wiped it off. Wow! 
I now have super clean and non sticky scissors :-)

Ok, I also have sticky scissors, but I don´t know what WD 40 are. Is that what we call 5-56, a lubricant ... or is it something else? Anyway, it´s a fantastic card you have created!
