The sun is shining, the birds are singing, all the doors and windows are open to let the fresh spring air into the house - and all of a sudden my crafting mojo has gone into Christmas mode. I wonder why? Partly, I suspect, because I've been inspired by the lovely pad of papers that I won recently over at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge!
Here is my first make using the papers. The pine branches remind me of a Christmas tree, and Christmas trees need baubles. So I used a very old Cuttlebug die to cut baubles and bows from white card, then coloured the bows red with an inkpad, direct-to-paper, and embossed the baubles using two different festive folders, both of which were magazine freebies.
The cute Santa and reindeer buttons are from It's Sew Gorgeous and I've hung the baubles from the branches with a scrap of red metallic cord.
