Superb card Jude. I have only ever made one 8x8 card, it was pretty scary as a lot of space to fill in. You have managed just beautifully :-) I so love the embellishments used.

Super card for your Xmas stash Jude. The details are great.
I have a couple of Christmas cards made for this year but will need to up the ante quite a lot if I want to have enough for everybody.
