Memory Box Row of Tree Christmas Cards

It’s a good job I took photos of these cards because I have lost them!!! Put away somewhere safe, to be found in three months time no doubt!! They did measure about 5ins x 5ins, I think, using a blue card.
Row of Trees Memory Box Die Christmas CardAs you know in the past I have used a bare tree and red heart design for many of the Christmas cards I send to my family and close friends,  usually stamped, and that was my intention for this year when I fell in love with this Memory Box Row of Trees Die (No. 98369), which measures approx. 3 3/4" x 2. 
Memory Box Row of TreesBut I am afraid time beat me …… and to be honest I wasn’t altogether sure that the proportion of the hearts were really right and if I should have used a printed paper for the background ….. something just isn’t right, it’s too stark !!  However, I am not going to beat myself up about it, but leave it now until next year.
Memory Box Row of Trees CardI used a very glittery roll of gift wrap for the snow, I have awful difficulty, as I have said before in finding a “pure” white glitter card for my snow …. but this roll was perfect, and should last for years ….. and was a lot cheaper than having to buy a pile of A4 or 12 x 12 sheets.
