I feel a bit of a cheat with this card

The main image on this card was bought exactly as you see it, I've had it a few years and it came fully made up on a sheet of 6 Christmas decoupaged toppers.
So I dusted the cobwebs off it punched a border on some gold card and punched a couple of holes and added the ribbon I finished the card by adding red gems andedging the card with a gold pen.
Now why did I only buy 2 sheets of these toppers?

I see what you mean - sometimes we can not see the wood for the trees, and miss the opportunity to make life easy for ourselves. Very nice card anyway you made it.

It's a lovely card Jak and I think I can answer your question - in fact you have yourself....gorgeous as they look, you don't have to do enough!

It looks fabulous Jak, which just goes to show that it's the finishing touches that make the card! Without your ribbons, borders etc. this would not look the same. It's nice when we can actually make life a little easier sometimes isn't it?

Love how you have done this - looks so very special!!

I have found you either dont buy enough of something and want more, or you buy loads of something and it never works out how you want so the rest just stay there - hmmmmff

Beautiful card, Jak- it may be a ready-made topper but the application is stunning. Your own creativity with additional embellishments has brought it to life.

This card is lovely Jak
it may be a bought topper but sometimes l think we need to resort to using these as we all lead such busy lives and if you have lots of xmas cards to do like me the odd bought topper adds to the making of quick cards l could perhaps do with a few myself, and they do make lovely cards so don't feel guilty l am sure everyone of us has and still does use them from time to time.
