Another One Bit The Dust - New Die Used

 I'm fairly happy with this card, however, if you look past the great flames and cute stockings hung by the chimney with care, you'll see that the fireplace is crooked against the "wallpaper".  I don't know what happened, but when I put the front of the card onto the back panel, it was all wonky.  I'll live with it.  

I do love the fireplace.  Some of the inserts stayed in like the square corners of the fireplace, which I loved.  I used manilla folders for the paper - fantastic color for a fireplace.  This is however a very large fireplace, so be prepared to make a larger card than an A2 size.

fabulous. I would not have seen it was crooked if you had not mentioned it. Great card.

Darling trio of stockings on that fab fireplace, Arlene! Love the wallpaper too!! I struggle with aligning things - you win some and lose some; can't worry about it. Can't even tell on yours without looking closely!
