A very small Christmas card

Hello Crafters, 

I hope you are doing fine. 

I currently seem to be back in mojo, I've been making a lot more cards lately than usual. And I think I also know why. I believe it is, because it's been a bit more relaxed at my job for the past few weeks. We've had tough years in my department, and lately we have finally got new staff. We are still in the process of training, but already it's big relief. 

So, I've finally started making Christmas cards, since the holidays are fast approaching.

I love this sentiment tree and wanted to emboss it in either white or silver, so I created a dark blue gradient with my water colours, on which it could shine. I love how that turned out.

But then Murphy's law hit and everything went wrong. This cards is a very usual size, since I had to crop it down several times. First I cut the partial circle too high up, so I needed to shorten the card base. Then I thought it would look better a bit slimmer, so I did that, but I must move the card while cutting, the cut ended up incredibly crooked. So I tried to fix that. In the end it's almost half the size of a normal card, only a bit taller.

But I think I'll use it like a gift tag, so it'll be fine.

Have a lovely day
