Believe in the Magic

This is my DT card for Crafts-Too Challenge You (C2CU) and the theme this month is Christmas Festivities and for the first two weeks we would like you to create/depict a scene. I have used a Nellie’s vintage image, Crafts-Too snowflakes die and embossing folder and other dies by Tim Holtz and Memory Box.
I am loving using kraft card and I think this with the sepia tones and reds work really well together.
Christmas is a very important event in our family calendar and we all love this special time of year, particularly as we have children around. This little girl looks as though she is very happy to be playing with a new Christmas teddy bear on a wonderfully snowy day. Just how we wish all Christmas days could be.
I layered up the tree first die-cutting it in brown card and then in white. Small snippets of the white one have been added to the brown one to represent the snow on the branches and I sparkled them up a bit with frosted lace stickles.
The 25 is a movers and shapers die, simply cut in the same red paper as the embossed panel.
A beautiful snowy Christmas scene.

We hope that you will be able to join us in the challenge which is open until the end of October, but remember the twist will change in another two weeks.

I hope you have a great weekend. I am looking forward to spending it in Swanage and being by the sea. What will be very interesting is that it is ‘Blues’ weekend so there will be lots of bands and artists singing and playing in the pubs and clubs, I’ll let you know what it is like next week.

Take care.
