Four birds are calling.

Good afternoon blog land! Lol.

I hope you are all ok and your day has been good so far. Once again thank you for your comments and well wishes on my new DT position. I'm so looking forward to posting my cards for Tammys Scrapin Corner Blog and sharing them all with you. You have all been great and I really couldn't do this without you all!

My card today is a Christmas card with a waterfall topper of images and sentiments from the Christmas song , I'm afraid I can't remember the title of the song but I know how it goes lol. The waterfall compartment I made myself but I did it a while ago and I'm sure I followed a tutorial or had a template. I just know it was from splitcoasters website, link: Splitcoasters  so if you search on there you will find it.

I used some hunkydory Christmas card stock to make the base of the card into an A5 portrait card. I cut three different sizes of patterned card stock using my X Cut die and matted the waterfall topper onto them. I finished if with my flowers from my stash, ribbon bow, diamanté's, sentiment from hunkydory and some silver star embellishments.

I also used some christmas paper on the inside of the card to make it just that little bit more special.

A simple card but looks effective.
