Simple Christmas Branch Card

This card measures 6ins x 6ins and is made using a hand cut, linen effect card blank
Stars on a branch cardI used my Memory Box  - MB98187 WOODLAND BRANCH DIE  Code: MB98187 for this very simple card.
After I had glued the branch on to the card, I went over it lightly with a white gel pen and then a Quickie Glue pen to add a light sprinkling of translucent micro glitter to give it a Christmassy feel.  Unfortunately the photo just doesn’t bring out the magical twinkle and sparkle of the glitter.

Voila!

Yup - those gems were the crowning touch. Fabulous card!

Hi Helen. Wonderful, I love it.
I am a very happy bunny now as my lovely daughter managed to get the last pack of robin stickers in a Paperchase she visited : )) Guess what I am going to be doing today : )) She also got a pack that have Badgers, Foxes and Owls, (and deer, flowers and foliage) which are the names of me and my Beaver Scout assistants so now I have to think of a way to use them. Any ideas Helen? :)Take care.
