In a Flap for November

With hardly any Christmas cards made yet I'm definitely in a bit of a flap in that regard!
"In a Flap" is the name of the November LO idea on The Sketch File Blog and I've used it to make a couple of  cards so far - Christmas cards, so that's at least 2 in the box!
The sketch actually went live a couple of weeks ago but I completely forgot to blog my cards here

 For my first card I used the sketch the "right" way up and used my new star die
 Tools and Materials:
Cream card, Red card
Red and Gold Glitter card
Gold ribbon
Homemade sticker sentiment
Dies: Spellbinder scalloped circle
Sweet Dixie star
Various star punches
The little hearts around the scalloped edge are waste from the 2 star die cuts

Here is the sketch:
For this week's card I turned the sketch upside down to make a snow "hill" for the tree to stand on


 Tools and Materials:
White card
Dark Blue card embossed with "Petite Dots" (Crafters Companion)
Green and Silver Glitter card
Silver cord
Homemade sticker sentiment
Dies: Spellbinder plain circle, Sweet Dixie Tree, Cheery Lynn snowflake plate
Small and tiny star punches



Well, that's it for this time
Thanks for looking
