This week's Little Extra from The Daring Cardmakers is to make a card featuring both big and small sizes of the "bits" used, so if you use a big button then you need to use a little one too, use a big flower shape and you also need a little one.

I made this card using some Craft Robo downloads from the Bosskuts site. I think it's fab that lots of the lovely Bosskutz dies are now available as downloads - obviously you have to pay for them, but it's not very costly and I found it all really quick and efficient.
So here are big and little versions of the two Bosskuts Christmas Trees, cut to the sizes I wanted with the Robo - cool, eh? Wouldn't it be nice if the makers of all our favourite dies were as far-sighted as this?

Paper is from the Daisy Bucket "Wrapped Wishes" set
Green card is Bazzill
Silver card is a bit of a folder that's gone tatty and I've "recycled"
Also used; pink and silver Stickles glitter glue, pink star gems, brad and fibres from my stash.

Please join in - it's fun - honestly! :-)

Love the card, the trees look great. Thanks for the info about the bosskut designs now being available for download, I might have to have a little look to see what takes my fancy! I wonder whether other die manufacturers will follow suit?

I love this, those trees are awesome.Gorgeous card.
I love watching Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Xmas, & these trees look so much like the ones in Christmas land, bent as they were so snow laden.
