I made four small Christmas cards yesterday, using my new dies from Spellbinders. I am sooo glad I purchased them because they look very effective.
I purchased my cards ages ago from Anna Marie designs, & to be honest I did not imagine them to be as small as they was (10cm x 10cm), but now I have worked with them, they are just perfect for what I want.
I have used all four colours that came in the package & have used them for the snowflakes too, apart from the largest one. I decided to try & glitter one up (but too fiddly), I then settled with using mirror card. The corners inside each card match the largest snowflake colour.
Hope you like them & look forward to your views (good & bad) x

I generated the tag on my laptop. It says "Merry Christmas from Sally & Lee x".
This saves me writing, just need to add the persons name.

Sentiment says " Glad Tidings we bring to you and your kin".
