Another Gatefold card today, using papers from the 6″ pad, some pretty lace and a couple of Kaisercraft die cut Christmas trees which I embossed with Nuvo gold embossing powder. The bottom card has another two Die cut trees, this time just touched with some Kindyglitz, and I hand cut a bit of a hilly background from white glitter card. the collectables on this card are from the Letters to Santa range. Til tomorrow…..
After a short break we are back to Christmas Cards! This series is a big one so i am going to post these ones 2 at a time. The paper collection is Kaisercraft Letters to santa, and I purchased the 6’pad, 12 x 12 papers and the collectables so on most of these cards you will see a bit of all these elements. The top card is 6″ pad on the base, collectables in the corners and the image is from a piece of 12 x 12 paper fussy cut and inked around the edges with tea dye distress ink. I foiled a piece of kaisercraft wooden flourish with green foil and added red berries with some Nuvo drops. I used the same products on the second card with the addition of ribbon and lace. We have had some lovely weather here this week, so I have spent a little bit of time sitting in the garden enjoying the sun on my face, but today I am going to do some seriuos die cutting of flowers and leaves because I want to master the art of flower shaping..I think that is something I could do in the evening while watching tv, and it will put my many flower dies to good use too…Til tomorrow….
I covered my base card with a piece of Kaisercraft Christmas jewel 12 x 12 paper -this particular paper was silver embossed with lots of seasonal words, so didn’t need too much decorating… so I just added a die cut circle ( in gorgeous purple glitter cardstock) a collectable from the pack, and a Kaisercraft wooden flourish which i embossed with mu Go Press and foil machine. The sentiment is from the sticker sheet from the same collection and I mounted it on some white cardstock and popped on the card with foam pads. Today I picked up my new kaisercraft christmas collection called Letters to Santa, and I have spent a lovely afternoon fussy cutting lots of pieces ready for more Christmas cards. Til tomorrow…..
Todays card is interesting because it uses some of the strips of offcuts from papers from the 6″ pad used on other cards. A great way to use up scraps. The decoration is from the kaisercraft christmas Jewel collection, and the greeting is from the sticker sheet and layered onto more scrap paper. I love the colours of this papr collection, and today we got in the september Kaisercraft releases which are both Christmas paper collections and I love the red/green vintage collection so that will be my buy for this month! Til tomorrow….
Finally today we make a start on this years Christmas makes, and first up is a folding box of reindeers! The papers for this first series is Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel, and a lot of this collection is already foiled. I bought the 6″ pad, collectables , sticker sheet and a couple of sheets of the 12 x 12 paper. The collectable pack had some reindeer and I had a punch from Stampin Up which I used to punch out a few more in silver foil and glitter cardstock.The little reindeers on the front flap were from the Kaisercraft chipboard pieces box and I foiled them with my Go Press and foil machine. i will be back tomorrow with more Christmas! til tomorrow….
Here are the other two cards I made for my group Christmas in July challenge..I hadn’t been out to the Craft room annex ( shed) for my Christmas stash so really used what was to hand in the craft room, and I had been making lessons with some Kaisercraft dies, and I always have a bit of glitter paper in the craft room. The stitched oval is a Paper Rose die, and I die cut the bauble on the top card and foiled it through the Go Press and Foil machine as I was experimenting with that new toy at the time. The rest was just assorted bling on my desk. Its a lazy kind of afternoon this afternoon after a busy morning at work, and I am going to have a bit of a sit down with a good book today! Til tomorrow….
