Christmas Card from Clever Carolyn

The new Spring Mini Catalogue contains lots of ideas and items for Christmas which will be upon us before we know it (it's like a slippery downhill slope all the way to December 25th).

The above card was designed by a very clever downline demonstrator of mine, Carolyn Gibbs. She has used a set called Tree Trimmings. But not in the conventional way shown here:

Ryn has used the longer ornament stamped repeatedly in the shape of a star. The background is the smaller ornament stamped multiple times in Baja Breeze ink on the same coloured card stock. The centre of the star and the matting behind the Kraft cardboard are both from Ski Slope which is a new Christmas-theme paper.

I was very impressed with Ryn's creativity but she's taken the card above and stepped-it-up with a ribbon and brad plus some edge distressing. Check out this post on her website to see what I mean.

To see more of the new Mini, please come along to the launch party tomorrow, there's still room for more.

Thanks for your time and attention, please keep watching, I've lots more to share.

Love from Crafty Kim
