Another Tree!

I recently placed an order with Simon Stamps and was pleasantly surprised when it dropped through my letterbox without having to pay customs duty or PO charges! I don't mind paying the duty but object to the £8 for the PO!! Anyway I managed to find time to have a play yesterday but by the time I'd finished it was too dark to get a decent photo. It's not much better this morning as it is so gloomy - so apologise if the photo's not too good!


 It's a bit difficult to see but I used the falling snow mask on the background, the tree and sentiment are both dies. The glimmer paper is from Stampin' Up! and the stars are punched using the Merry Minis punch set also from SU (not in the catalogue but still available from me HERE).  I'm entering this into the following Challenges:

 Less is More  -  Trees
Pixies Snippets Playground - the trees and stars were snippets

I'll be back later with my post for Digitally Sweet.


  1. Beautiful card Sue and I can sympathise with your postage problems with items from the US. They've got such gorgeous things but it costs so much to transport it. I have to hope my American Aunt is planning a trip over!!!! x

  2. YAY I love this very elegant and glitzy looking card Sue. Cool and classy.

    Thank you for joining in with Rudolph Day.

  8. Great card Sue, I love those die cuts you used, especially the trees. On my wish list - but you didn't say who makes the tree die :( There's gonna be some internet surfing going on here when I finally surface from underneath the avalanche of washing and ironing!

    Hugs, Di xx

  9. Lovely card, Sue. The trees are gorgeous. I've stopped ordering from the US after being really stung for customs and admin costs! Elizabeth xx

  10. What a lovely card! Love those trees. And the gold glitter...Perfect! Bev

  11. A beautiful CAS Christmas card, the background snow looks fabulous. I too love SU glimmar paper.

  12. Very pretty and sparkly! I thought they were embossed, stamped trees!

  13. Such an elegant & sparkly card. The gold glitz really pops against your snowy background, and I'm loving that script. TFS & Hugs
