Christmas .....deadline?

Hello friends,
I said that I would be back yesterday, but just didn't get to finishing the card. It almost feels like the Christmas rush at the moment, trying to get certain things done on time.



Well I must admit I did cheat a little. I had started this card before Christmas, but then I really did run out of time, so decided to quickly finish it off. I still have another couple ready for completion, so that will help when I need to use them.

I just can't remember the fold...A diamond...???, will find it and put it up later.
 Here is what I used:

Paper - Green cardstock, and matted red onto that.
Image - Country Crafts and stamps. Stamped and embossed with gold EP, coloured with pencils and cut it out. Mounted with 3D foam dots.
Used peel-off strips and corners to finish.

As it still is March for another few hours, I had best get it into the challenges for March.

What a really neat fancy fold. Love all the touches of gold and of course that fab red background. I too have some cards that are partially finished from last Christmas. I just never seem to have the time to go back to them. I realize that this card (and the other I'm about to visit) are from March but since I was over here on other DT business, I figured it was high time I pop in and leave you a comment. Thanks so much for adding your card to my 12 Months of Christmas link up.

Regards,
Lisa
