CD Sunday - 'Christmas old or new' - chosen by Jocelyn

We have now almost reached the end of the year and here is the last challenge of 2018.  'Christmas old or new' - chosen by Jocelyn.   As I suggested on the Blog,  try to keep this challenge in mind as you are having that last frantic card making rush.  If you haven't time to make cards with lots of diecuts and layers why not turn to a CD and print out a topper on good quality paper - grab a white 6 x 6 card and  see what you can do.   Even better use a CD based Graphics programme like MCS or Docraft.  I do that every year.  Design a card with one of these systems and then I have something on the computer that I can print out if needed.  I did need to this year as I miscounted and was 5 short.  If you do this then of course your card will qualify for this last challenge.

The card I made for this challenge is based on an idea I saw on Pinterest.

Here it is:
The background is a sheet from a CD called  'Artylicious - Seasons greetings' - Disk 1' .The design is by Glenda Waterworth.
The tree is made of many, many die cut snowflakes from a mixture of green card.  Many were cut from scraps left over from other projects.  Under the snowflakes  is a simple diecut triangle that acts as the tree base and is something to which the snowflakes are stuck.

The gems in the corners are big and shiny and sadly don't show up well but you can see where they catch the light.  The 'gems' on the tree are red flat backed pearls.
An easy card to make - just time consuming die-cutting all the snowflakes.

Please have a great Christmas and New Year.  In the new year  CD Sunday is being tweaked just a little and all that will be revealed when we post the first challenge for 2019 on 6th January.

Don't forget you can enter on the CD Sunday Blog -  here, or on Facebook -  here, or send your entry in via email to   -

Take care of yourselves.
