Christmas Countdown Day 1

christmas-countdownHi everyone and welcome to Queen Pip’s Christmas Countdown Day 1 – for the next 12 days I’ll be posting nightly to give you some last minute inspiration and suggestions for cards, boxes, tags and home decor. I hope you’ll enjoy these daily dips into my crafting world, if you want to purchase any of the items I show each day then there will always be links to the items at the bottom of each post.

So to start us off today I thought I’d share this card which is made with Night of Navy and Silver, a very classic look!

A real wow card for a special someone at Christmas – it does take a little extra time to make this card, but I think you’ll agree it’s worth it!
