Christmas in July....again!!

Now I know you're all melting in  the UK but wait til it gets to 41degrees like it does here in August!! Seriously tho try to keep cool and stay indoors with windows open or fans on, if you've got them. It's not worth getting burnt!!

Looking at all those Christmas in July cards should help keep you cool!! Today I'm going to show a simple card to make. I used two co - ordinated tree shaped triangles one slightly smaller than the other. I cut the smaller one up.  Then jig saw like I put it back together but left a gap between each piece. Hey presto........a fancy tree. I then added a pot in the same way and a bow. Put it on DP and added a greeting underneath.  I think the piccie is clearer than my explanation.

So another one for Xmas card box. I'm entering this into the following challenges:


  1. Great idea with the designer tree Wynn - and another super card for the box.
