Banana and Custard

Hello.  Welcome.  Hope you aren't having too much weather. 

Wot Christmas already?  Just wanted to test drive my new God Jul stamp from Panduro.  The base card is Authentique paper.  The tree is from Memory Box Frosted Christmas Tree cut from My Minds Eye Lizard Egg paper.  It's blue but it seems to have acquired a green tint whilst I was trying to adjust by background back to white!  The Russian Doll is a Marianne die.


I cut the inside using Joy Crafts Open Up Christmas Snowflake die.

I attached a second Russian Doll die to the snowflake so she pops up when the card is opened.

Isn't she cute.  Did think about giving her a snowflake in place of her flower but I think we need a few flowers in winter.  All my inks were various blue shades.  DI Salty Ocean, VersaMagic Ocean Depth and Aegean Blue

My very blue card is joining the fun at
