Hello and welcome to my happy place....

I can hear you all groan lol.... but if we all made one, possibly two Christmas cards per week, image the relief you'll have nearer the festive time, not rushing to make your cards.  Does that soften the blow any? Possibly not, but may be I can a little!  I have loads of Chloe stamps left over from when my hubby and I ran our sugarcraft and cardcraft shop, so, there will be a freebie stamp each Friday until our supply is exhausted.  They are not all Christmas stamps and there may be a possibility of duplication but we all know that we can't have too much stash, right?

The winner of the stamp will be announced each Sunday and the Wednesday card winner each Saturday

So my first Christmas card for 2018, very plain and simple.  I intend to make another 9 to make up a gift pack and will donate them to our local hospice 

 A 6" square card and I scored 4lines and placed the snowman in the centre

Die cut the snowman and added 'snow' to the body.  Stickles added to the pompom and around the scarf

I used kraft card for the 'arms' 

Mounting foam was added to the back of the snowman

A verse has not been added as I will stamp one when the remainder of the cards are complete

The sentiment was stamped and embossed
Christmas tree stamped and embossed on the corner of the card

Matching envelope

Hello everyone After much heart and soul searching I have finally made the decision to close Poppyfield Card Crafts blog and YouTube channel...
