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

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

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
