Anna-Karin wants to enjoy autumn for a while longer, but had fun making a Christmas card in cream and white, with a few touches of gold. She used the Simon Says Stamp Ho Ho Postage set, and die cut an intricate border with Tim Holtz’s Crochet set.

Emma got into the Christmas spirit by creating a home decor piece ready to display over the festive season. She used Tim Holtz’s Vignette Boxes as a base and created the wonderland scene with the beautiful die cut Reindeer and a Woodland Half Tree covered in Mica Flakes.
