Todays cards rely heavily on dies. The paper I used is by Stampin Up called Home for Christmas and it was released last year, but I still have a bit left.For the top card the sentiment die is a new release from memory box,and the scenery dies are by stampin up also a release from last year, but I didn’t get them in time to use them last year. The bottom card has a window die cut with a memory box die,with one of the stampin up dies behind it. The house and christmas tree were fussy cut from the stampin up paper.We are experiencing wild weather here at the moment, so will post this now in case we lose power again! Til tomorrow….
A quick break from Christmas cards today while I show you a few cards I made with a couple of sheets of Pebbles Winter Wonderland that I picked up.The top photo shows two cards that I made with a gatefold, covering all panels with the patterned paper, and the Princesses from one of the shet of paper, and the bottom photo shows the more traditional fold and for the focal point I glued on some little dolls that I picked up in our local cheap shop. I die cut the happy birthday’s out of glitter cardstock. Seeing these cards again has just reminded me that I have an order for 3 cards to do this weekend, for great grand daughters. I hope I still have some of those little dolls left because they will be perfect!Til tomorrow….
This is the very last of my October Afternoon Make it Berry collection. I have loved revisiting this collection,but what is left of it has gone into the surplus to requirements bag, as I can’t keep everything.My craft room is becoming a fire hazard! I made this card as a DL size card ( cardstock 21 x 21 cm and folded in half) to accommodate the tall reindeer image. A bit of offset layering, lace and ribbon and this one is ready to go! A new series tomorrow, Til then ….
Always a challenge photographing gatefold cards, hopefully you all get the gist of these ones!Gatefold shapes are fast becoming my favourite as it’s so easy to decorate inside as well,just a piece of matching paper and a greeting .The paper here is the same as last post – October afternoon Make it berry. A release from a few years ago, and I just used some shiny red ribbon and some rhinestones for texture.tomorrow will be the last card with this collection, then onto something new! Still have a lesson to plan out today in the craft room,then I will be back to more Christmas cards! Til tomorrow….
