Trouble with the Christmas Shopping

The background I've used for this card is actually one that went wrong for a card I was making a couple of weeks ago - I put the card into the knitting effect embossing folder back-to-front so it came out debossed rather than embossed. But I reckoned it looked like a forest of tiny Christmas trees, so I kept it to use on a Christmas card.

The paper I cut the border from, sentiment and cartoon are all from the Katy Sue CD "The Christmas Spirit". UK friends will immediately recognise the real-life store those 5p carrier bags came from!

I am sharing this with

  1. Great use of that de bossed card, it works perfectly. Your card actually made me laugh out loud! I've not heard of that CD-ROM before, might have to keep an eye out for it. Have a great Wednesday! Cara x

  2. Your card is a hoot, Jane, and what a clever designer you are, to visualize little Christmas trees from your debossed panel! I'd go so far as to say brilliant!! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell

  3. He! he! This is so funny! FABulous scene and great sentiment.
    I would have said 'It was a tutorial lol' x It's Brilliant.
