Plane and simple (men's) Tree Trimmings (Christmas)

Good Afternoon All

Hope you're all well, personally I cant believe that we're half way through September and Christmas is only 70 odd working day's away.............

Today I decided that we'd use plane and simple (from the mini catalogue which ends 30th September) to make a men's card and then we'd move swiftly along to the season that's soon approaching, yip Christmas, with tree trimmings.

For the men's card we did a little shadowing which was gorgeous and we also did a little embossing.  The stamping of the goggles was done before the embossing to get the lovely embedded effect that's been achieved.

The tree trimings card is a fancy fold card which is very effective with this pretty christmas set.

Take a look and let me know what you think.

    Love the male card and the second one is so unusual in the way that you have laid it out.

  9. If you count down the shopping days till Christmas, I'm gonna avoid you! Love both of these. You know how much folds scare me, I expect the second is simple, but it scares me. Looks A.Mazing though. xxx
