It's that Christmas tree die again!

My Christmas tree die just HAS to be the most useful magazine cover gift I've ever had! It's big enough to be a main focal point, yet small enough to be cut with snippets, it comes cleanly out of the die every time and most importantly of all, it looks great. In fact I use it more often than many of my full price bought dies.

This time I've combined it with snippets of silver and white card, a length of ribbon that came around a gift box of smellies and a  doodled background made using a Tonertex pen and silver foil from FoilPlay . I also foiled the edges of the background card and the tree topper. The stars on the background actually cover the whole of the background but I couldn't get the lighting right to show it!

I'm sharing this with
